(Yahoo!) - 'Tis the season to celebrate — because the highly anticipated Kardashian Christmas card is here. Debuted on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians: A Very Merry Christmas" special, which aired on Sunday, the snapshot was distinctly more high fashion and notably less … how should we put this … inclusive than in the past.
Snapped by famed photog David LaChapelle, the image is reminiscent of a ransacked carnival, packed with everything from a hot pink staircase covered in graffiti to a burned-out dollar sign to disassembled gold mannequins to broken games featuring the family members' faces to what appears to be a few abandoned movie theater seats (the kind you would never, ever want to sit in).
But while the glitz and glam are in full effect, there are still a few notable things missing — namely the men. Other than Kourtney's son, Mason (who is unfortunately draped over a nasty movie theater seat), the only other man in any of the ladies' lives who made the Christmas card cut was Kris's estranged husband, Bruce Jenner.
And while he does appear in the photo, he is literally trapped inside a glass tube labeled "Cashier." That said, it's probably worth noting that his old Wheaties box does get to make a cameo, even if it is partially covered by Kendall's showcased gams.
But where are Kourtney's baby daddy, Scott Disick; Kim's fiancé/baby daddy, Kanye West; Khloé's husband, Lamar Odom; and Kris's son, Rob Kardashian? (Also, baby North is left out, but she's probably too young to care yet.)
While we can understand Lamar might not be included depending on when this image was shot — and whether he and Khloé are actually patching things up or not — it seems rather strange to omit the others.
Scott has been a staple on the show for ages now and provides a never-ending source of drama for their highly rated TV show. And Kanye seems to have integrated smoothly into the Kardashian web, having appeared on Kris Jenner's now-defunct talk show and orchestrating one of the most dramatic proposals in history. And … umm … that guy Rob? Isn't he like, their biological brother? Unless he was off doing important missionary work (and something tells us he wasn’t) why would he not be included in what is labeled as the "family" holiday photo?
If it is stinging the other men, maybe they can find some solace in the fact that Bruce wasn't really supposed to be in it either. On the show, when it was explained that the card would only feature the Kardashian women (and Mason), Bruce spoke up.
"I think that's a terrible decision," he lamented. "It's your mom's and my Christmas card!"
When Kris realized she might have hurt Bruce's feelings by leaving him out, she invited him to be a part of it. How sweet.
Something about the crumbling carnival theme seems eerily appropriate indeed.
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” season 9 “superteaser” has debuted, giving viewers a first-hand look at the events that have dominated the headlines for months.
From Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s marriage troubles to Kris and Bruce Jenner’s separation, the new batch of episodes will be a no-holds-barred look at the family’s recent tumult.
But it’s not all depressing drama - Kanye West’s proposal to Kim Kardashian was captured by the cameras in all its romantic glory.

Like true African-American parents, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle don’t care what the popular kids are doing. They couldn’t give two cents about what George and Barbara will let their kids do. The Obamas won’t let Sasha Obama join Facebook. Period. End.
It’s a line that all children know so well. “I don’t care what your friends are doing…” C’mon you know your mom said that to you a time or two. In an interview with Barbara Walters, President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, told the veteran journalist on ABC’s 20/20 that while their oldest daughter, Malia, 15, has limited access to Facebook, her little sister, Sasha, 12, isn’t old enough for that.
“I still am not a big believer in Facebook for young people … particularly for them, because they’re in the public eye,” FLOTUS said. “Some of it’s stuff they don’t need to see and be a part of … So we try to protect them from too much of the public voice.”
Another big surprise that came out of the interview is that Malia, who’s a sophomore, is allowed to date now! But like good parents they wouldn’t say if she’s seeing anyone special.
The First Family is already eying life after the White House as well. Malia will be in college, but Sasha will be a sophomore in high school when the president’s second term ends in 2017, and her parents are weighing whether to stay in Washington D.C. so that she can finish school there, or move back home to Chicago.
“Sasha will have a big vote,” the president admitted, acknowledging that his family has “made a lot of sacrifices on behalf of my cockamamie ideas, the running for office and things.”
