Oh Honestly!

As one of my favorite relatives would say 'Honestly!' with the second and third syllables drawn out. I arrived in Port Aurthur today, and turned on the TV in the hotel room to find the Home Shopping Network pedaling their wears!

Now while the items at the end of this post are the most dastardly -- these two came in third and second respectively.
Just what I've always wanted -- salt and pepper shakers on wheels, the lack of these is all that has been holding us back from moving into our dream ginger bread house!

And now we have -- well I'm not exactly sure what, or why -- but I love that she has spiky hair, and am flabbergasted that she has a patch over her left eye. I'm reminded of the lady on Napoleon Dynamite that wanted to sell Tupperware to get the large scale model ship! "Hal, I whhaaant that!!!"

And now for first place!! -- This was actually on the television, they were pumping these things up as if they were perfectly normal. As if everyone needs one to complete their 'collection' as they put it. They touted the handiness of the 'handle' on top, and the three different grating sizes!
I really don't know how people 100 years ago ever got along without such foolhardy, repulsive, made in China products! I had a great disdain for HSN before today, but they have reached a new level of shame in my book, seriously "It would make a wonderful gift," they said.
If you received this as gift would you seriously be like -- 'Oh that's just what I needed!'?
Or would you be like me, frantically searching for a gift receipt --
And just wait -- with shipping this bad boy (or girl I guess) comes out to nearly $36.00 with shipping! Seriously!

Please, no wedding gift ideas here. Thanks, but no thanks.

If I received any of these as a gift, I would wonder why the gift-giver hated me so.
