Christmas Spirit [Dec. 19th, 2003|02:29 pm]
[Current Mood |wrapped up]

What's the Christmas spirit all about? A quick search will tell you it's all about the presents! But you must shop wisely.. You don't want people exclaiming "What a crappy present!" when they open your gift to them. With all the cool and funky products out there, how can you choose? The key is to only buy gifts approved by Underwriters Laboratories and a professional humor columnist.

Wow. I am awed (as I often am by your 'links entries') by the things you find and share. :)

Great entry! :)

Wow, thanks! I usually consider them to be mediocre entries. It's all a matter of finding enough interesting links and not wanting to write much intervening text. :)

The look on the girl's face on the "What a crappy present" site was absolutely priceless... and Dave Barry's guide to holiday shopping frequently had me rolling on the floor. [My favorite bit? The review of the claw covers for cats, particularly the line, "So there you are! Bleeding profusely!" :)]

I like these sorts of posts because they show me dark, potentially frightening, or amusing (or both, come to think of it) content on the web. :)

Plus, your adept way of putting links together that may have only tenuous links to one another in a way that works - and invariably tickles my funny bone. :)

I always enjoy Dave's gift guide. Each year he comes up with a pantheon of strange --not necessarily bad, just strange-- products.

Thanks for the compliments; I'm glad you like them. I suspect I consider them as less than some of my other posts just because it seems like I put less work into writing them. :)

The "Crappy Present" site is pure comedy gold, and genius! I wish I had written it.

Thanks for sharing!
