Let me first say that the bar on thewhite elephant gift exchangehas been set very high by Topher. If you haven't stopped by to see his gift (yes, I peeked at it already) of The Japanese Golden Poop Charm - then you are missing a great treat. But how in the world could I find a gift that could top that?!?! I just can't - but damn, I hope I am the lucky one that receives it.
For my contribution to this exchange, it is a not only the gift but the freakin' hilarious description provided by Jezebel in her recap of a few of the best Swiss Colony gifts. You can see the stunning glory of this gift in the picture on the right - but to get the full effect - read and enjoy her description:
Apolyester throwto cover your fat slob of a husband who's become attached to his La-Z-Boy at the cellular level, like that obese lady on Nip/Tuck. Instead of his name, embroider it with the word "Loser." Comes in excrement brown, Mommy's merlot and coroner's scrubs green. Pocket not designed to contain vomit. ($24.95)
Don't get me wrong - I love blankets, especially warm snuggling blankets after a cold winter run - but the pocket on the front for the remote has pushed this gift to a level of unacceptable.
If you are in the mood for posts and conversations about bad Christmas gifts, here are a few conversations to check out: HotRodders, CNN article, Yahoo discussion, Ktar discussion, Something Awful. There are tons more out there - but any of these will give you a good giggle and think you dear stars that your Great Aunt Thelma only gives you sweaters that she wore as a little girl versus what some of these folks have received.
