This Teddy Bear doesn’t love Maui

Is that not the saddest face you’ve ever seen on a teddy bear? I guess Maui was too hot for him.  It’s not the worst Christmas ornament ever, but it must be in the running for the saddest reminder of a vacation.

Halloween and Christmas decorations for sale in September

image

Dude… just… dude, come on.  Yesterday was the first day of fall. Give me a break with the Halloween and Christmas decorations.  Oh, and if you look carefully, you’ll see a Thanksgiving decoration on the top shelf. This is an assault on sanity. Where’s that lady when you need her?

Sears Wish Book featuring Farrah Fawcett bean bag chair

I know, it’s only September and I shouldn’t be doing Christmas posts yet, but screw you, you picky prick! I found the most amazing page of a Sears Wish Book that ever existed and the fact that Farrah Fawcett is included in this situation is only half the reason this is great.

“Santa Claus Got Stuck In My Chimney” – the Unholy Grail of Christmas Carols

Why, why, why does this exist?  Why would Ella Fitzgerald, the “First Lady of Song,” the “Queen of Jazz,” why, I ask you all, why would “Lady Ella” record such a song?

This section of our Christmas tree is particularly safe thanks to these Star Wars: The Clone Wars Christmas Ornaments because light sabers and shiz. Ah, the magic of the Holidays and the power to dismember your enemies – it’s my kind of Christmas!

Frosty the Snowman has a surprise for you and the Bumble is drunk

image

Well, I guess it’s true: a picture really is worth a thousand words. Just what in the hell were they thinking when they placed Frosty’s hat in that precarious position? And who designed the Bumble’s face? He’s clearly mangled!
Such is a 21st century Christmas.

Merry In-Laws movie review

I’d swear I’ve seen a “my parents are magic” movie before, but I can’t seem to remember when.  However, Merry In-Laws has Cheers alumni George Wendt and Shelly Long, so I thought this  could have potential.

Holiday Spin movie review

“We don’t know what’s happening here, either.”

A lot of these made for TV Christmas movies are ripoffs of other movies and Holiday Spin is no exception, except that I’ve never seen a ripoff of Save the Last Dance before. Read the rest of this entry

A Snow Globe Christmas movie review

Once again, we’ve got yet another Peggy Sue Got Married retread (really getting tired of making this reference) with A Snow Globe Christmas, which features completely wasted performances by the much too good for this nonsense Alicia Witt and Donald Faison. Read the rest of this entry
