Just... no

Doing some of my christmas shopping online this year (as most years), I've come across some things that are definitely NOT on my giving/receiving lists.  I thought I'd share a few of them with all of you, in case you wanted to punish someone on your list: 

Beer Belly  - a pouch you can fill with liquid, wear strapped to your stomach, and drink out of with a tube.  This sounds reasonable to people?  (Oh, and in case that's just not girly enough for you, there's also the Wine Rack, which is basically a sports bra you can drink from.)

You say you're not a big drinker, but still, somehow want to show that you have no manners?  Try these Bear Claw Forks, so you can just rip right into your food.

You could buy this Hand Grenade Soap for any of your lovely friends, so long as you're not flying anywhere over the holidays.

Now see, this Magazine Cover Pillow Case isn't such a bad idea, at its core.  But the ad for it - in all its sexist glory - pissed me off so much that even if I loved them, I wouldn't buy it. 

That's just the beginning of the ridiculousness I've seen so far... If I find others worth commenting on, I'll be sure to pass them on.

Wow...those are some BIZARRE gifts! I've been enjoying looking at all the silly stuff in gift catalogs. You know, things like bacon earrings, a pillow that looks like an ice cream sandwich, etc. My favorite so far is a t-shirt that says, "I'm not short, I'm fun-sized!" (I'm 5'1").

Isn't online shopping the best invention EVER??

Ok, I am sort of lusting after that TIME one.

But you are right, the sexist ad has got to go.

Hooray for online shopping! 100% this year, yeah baby!
