K.A.C. 2013 - T - 2 ...

     Our next-to-last entry for the year begins with some hilariously inappropriate Christmas ads (seriously, who thought Santa about to off himself was a good way to sell shirts?) - read 'em and weep. 



  But wait, there's more! Here's a follow-up article on "9 Disturbing Christmas Ads You Won't Believe". I'm rather partial to the Holiday Hell Bats and Winged Children postcard from the 1890s (below). There's also the Avalanche of Spoons, Revolvers For Christmas and so much more! 


Monica alerted me to this cute video of the "magic Christmas piano" that's up at Chicago's Union Station - guaranteed to make you smile!

     Usually each year I have an Image of the Year to wrap up the K.A.C. - this year is different. After searching long and hard, I haven't found anything I considered outrageous enough to win that prize. So instead I'll give you two runners-up. First, our final Krampus pic. Before I show that, though, I have to say the Big K. came on like gangbusters this year and was EVERYWHERE ! Way to go, guy! Earlier I told you I had one more Krampus item to share ... well, here it is! The Krampus Sweater (modeled by yours truly!) - there's just something about this sweater - I can't take a picture with it on without sticking my tongue out! :)  Believe me, the picture doesn't BEGIN to do this bad boy justice! As soon as I heard about it, I knew I had to have one! They are individually hand-made and quite toasty (I'm hoping that's due to the fabric and not Krampus!) - should you know of that certain someone on your list who must have one, you can place your order for next year via Shredders Knit Apparel here - tell them I sent you! 

     Finally, if I REALLY had to pick an Outrageous Image of the Year for the K.A.C., I would have to go with this Chocolate Santa out of London that has parents in an uproar. So many of you sent this image to me (including Mark R. and Debbie), I would be remiss in not sharing it! Behold Santa in all his chocolate magnificence! Read the full story here ... 


     And with that, I'm speechless! Return tomorrow as we wrap up the K.A.C. for another year - see you then!
