A few years ago I got this:
I don't get it. It came in a fancy ornament box and it was labeled as a "Christmas ornament" but why? Just because there is a hole for a hook on it? Would it kill them to put a Santa hat on him?
Same thing here. Why does Marilyn Monroe on a phone represent Christmas?
Well, rather than be eternally annoyed I embraced the "everything is an ornament" mentality.
In 2004 Pepsi released "Holiday Spice" which was basically Pepsi with a hint of cinnamon.
Now it's an ornament.
How about this:
Can you think of a reason why a 30 year old Gilligan's Island bath toy can't be an ornament? Well, keep it to yourself. He's on the tree now.
A Christian Hosoi skateboard? Why not?
How about a Rubix cube keychain? Yeah.
How about a Hannukah dreidel? You know there are 74 different ways to spell Hannukah? That isn't one of them.
How about a Garbage Pail Kid who is electrocuted at the touch of a button? Of course!
Nothing says Christmas like executing kids.
Actually, I think King Herod wanted the infant Jesus executed on the first Christmas. Wow. This article is now intellectual mumbo jumbo. It's all an allegory or something. Excuse me as I go grow a beard and buy a turtleneck.
