Ugly Tchotchke of the Week*

I used to clip these out and post them outside my cubicle, at another job. Now that I have this blog, I can post them here. Aren't you lucky.

*bananas not included.

Only $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping and handling! And then you too can have this ugly POS - I mean, fine collectible.

Here is the ad copy [snarky commentary added by yours truly]:
What do we have here? [GOOOOD question!] A sweet little blue-eyed baby [even monkeys are cuter wtih BLUE eyes!!] in a tiny diaper, looking for some tender loving care. But this little one has a curly tail and nibbles a banana! Introducing "Monkey Cuddles," a winsome little baby monkey figure so lovable, you'll smile [puke] every time you see her.

The collection will also include "Monkey Toddles" and "Monkey Nibbles." [I just CANNOT WAIT!!]

Who are the people who get paid to think up this bullsh**?

Did you happen to see that in PARADE magazine? They always put that crap in there, for some reason. Are they trying to be a crappy publication?

No, it was in the coupon section. There are always a ton in the coupon section. Isn't it awful?
