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.
OK, probably more than half…
Farrah Fawcett is not only an icon, but "Farrah Fawcett" might also be one of the coolest names ever. One doesn’t run into a lot of Farrahs, never mind people with last names that immediately bring plumbing imagery to mind. (SIDE BAR: any time Farrah Fawcett has a runny nose, she always has to choose her words carefully: "My nose is running like… Jesse Owens.")
But to the business at hand:
Why, of all things to put Farrah Fawcett’s face on, would someone decide that a bean bag chair was the way to go? I appreciate the humor of sitting on Farrah Fawcett’s face (as well as the alliteration), but if you’re going to put Farrah Fawcett on a product, IT’D BE NICE IF THE CONSUMER COULD ACTUALLY SEE FARRAH FAWCETT WHILE USING THE PRODUCT!
Other points of interest include that you can choose from three different Farrah Fawcett poses as well as notate that this product was available during the few years when she was married to Lee Majors, so… yeah, bionic man and shiz.
Anyway, here I am, 30 years too late, but still complaining about this product. I’m also thinking I would have had a completely different childhood if I’d of had the Farrah Fawcett bean bag chair…
I just thought everyone should know that they missed their chance to sit on Farrah Fawcett’s face.
