PopWatch Confessional: What's the most ridiculous gift you received for Christmas this year?

Posted on

Christmas Story Bunny

Aside from the off-chance you received a gift as (intentionally) awful as the ones these poor kids did on account of one unseasonably cruel Jimmy Kimmel, there was bound to be at least one ridiculous present that wound up under your tree this year. (Unless, of course, you somehow know perfect gift-giver Leslie Knope.)

The absurd present is certain to wind up in your gift pile if you’re pop-culture junkie, as we are both the givers and receivers of irony, year-round and especially on Christmas. (Case in point:  The Christmas episode of The Office when Jim and Karen both wound up giving each other copies of the terrible Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.)

But tell us PopWatchers, did you receive something so mind-bogglingly, WhyDidYouBuyMeThat.com-worthy this year? Did your Jersey Shore addiction come back to bite in you in the ass in the form of these? Or even worse: This? Did you receive the same Christmas Story pajamas as poor Ralphie (pictured) thanks to your own kooky aunt? How about a Nickelback album, despite the fact that you definitely did not ask for one? Since you probably had to put on a happy face when you received said gift, you can officially vent your utter dismay and confusion in the comments section below. Don’t worry, your gift-giver probably won’t read this. But if they are… um, is there any chance you still have the receipt?
