Christmas Crazy Goes Shopping

Every year we venture to Meder's as part of our pre-Christmas preparations, and this year was no exception. There is a story to be told, one that involves a very giggly little girl and a (rein)deer, but that story will have to wait. First, I ABSOLUTELY MUST share some photos of some ornaments that I found there.

I was keeping an eye out for some fantabulous gag gifts, and these fit the bill perfectly. The only problem is that the bill for each of them was over $30, so I guess everyone lucks out and only has to see these in photos.

Anyway, let me introduce you to my groovy boyfriend:

He's a peaceful merman, or so he claims.

This guy is apparently trying to drop his . . . um . . . pants? Tail? I dunno.

I also have no idea what he's doing with his hands. Nor do I want to know.

Ride 'em, cowboy!

How exactly does a merman sit on a horse? Does his tail hang to the left? Does the horse have to run under water? Won't the horse drown? I'm so confused.

There were about twenty different merman, each one more ridiculous than the next. I couldn't even take pictures of them all because I was laughing too hard. Because I saw this:

Before you give me crap about the camera being focused on her boobs and not her face . . . aw, hell, it's not like you noticed anything other than her boobs anyway. Why am I even bringing it up?

Anyway, if anybody has that chick on their tree, I demand an explanation.

Psst . . . keep on linking your Christmas Crazy. Photos, stories, special finds, whatever!

@VDog--I blame the camera. I was on full auto, I SWEAR.

...I'm not confirming or denying that one of these was a gift for my best friend a few years ago. Nope...not at all. (It was the one who looked like a member of the Village People.)

December 22, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterhello haha narf

and what is a Meder's?

December 22, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterhello haha narf

@hello haha narf-Meder's is in West Mifflin, near Century III mall. It's a greenhouse in the summer and a Christmas crap store in the winter.

Just because I know someone will want to buy the whole collection (it's OK to admit it)," rel="nofollow">here is a store that has them for much less than Meder's.

December 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBurgh Baby

WTH? Who buys these? And WHY??? Ca-razy!

December 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKat

Hilarious. Y M C A!!! Gurgle Gurgle. Love it, and I am ready to drive over there now. I guess I'd better take Claire to see the (rein)deer, too. Almost forgot.

December 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDevon Adams

I do not get these at all. Not at all.

Someone sent me this link because I write paranormal romances about mermen. But mine are nothing like these guys. They are funny, though.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

All I can hear is Blonde Merman saying "Whoo-pa-pa" like Chandler Bing and his whip sound effect.

December 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKatie in MA

OK, those are IN-SANE! Just love them! Who on earth came up with those and who buys them? People who make weighted babies, maybe?

December 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterShellie

Village People mermaids. Um. Wow.

"When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me."

Could be a mermaid member of the Red Hat Society.

Someone beat me to the seahorse.
These are all so hilarious!

Oh my word.....I wish I had some Christmas crazies, but I don't think they'd measure up to

December 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLisa @ Boondock Ramblings

When you mentioned Meder's I had this instant "ick" feeling, but I wasn't sure why. Then I saw the crazy photos - now I remember! The scary part is that they must sell those to somebody.
