Breaking news! It has just come to our attention here at the K.A.C. that the original inspiration for a Charlie Brown Christmas and the 'Charlie Brown Tree' came from none other than ... Vincent Price and his daughter Victoria! :) OK, we may be stretching things a wee bit, but isn't this a great picture? Thanks to Mark R. for the find!
We're going to ramp it up for our final six days, and what better way to start than with a look at the ten most bizarre Christmas gifts. They include the Monkey Brain Bowl, Bacon Toothpaste, Blood Bath Shower Gel and ... this! They're all found at the link below!
At this point in the game, if you're still looking for last-minute holiday gifts, you're pretty much out of luck, unless you pay extravagantly fast shipping expenses. Just get a gift card and call it a day. BUT - if you want to rock out a New Year's Party and need something to bring, look no further! What you need is the five pound life size Gummi Skull! Celebrate the death of the Old Year with this shockingly sweet reminder that the clock's a-tickin'!
