This Year's Badge Of Shame

A 7-foot tall upside Xmas tree. Sorry, let me clarify: a six-fucking-hundred dollar upside-down Xmas tree. Six-sixty-five, with shipping. Scariest part? Sold Out.

Are humans so starved for intellect that this was actually a good idea? "Oh, but Frank, they hung them from the ceiling in the 12th century, so it's historical!" Fuck you, suckhole, I don't see you doing anything else out of the ordinary just because it was done almost a thousand years ago, not that you're doing THIS for those reasons, in the first place. Face it, this is an SUV/soccer mom/image whore kind of move, coupled with bald-faced greed. Yes greed, as in the ad copy that crops up the most with this item about how you have more room under the tree for gifts. Yes, spend, spend, save your money and the terrorists win. Go guzzle down another bucket of Starbucks while you listen to your iPod, you yutz.

Christ. I almost hope I see one, simply so I can laugh at it. Ah, Christmas, when the worst of the worst of humanity come out to show off. When everyone lies and nobody cries and the idiocy runs rampant in the streets.
