Today’s Sign of the Apocalypse

November 16, 2008 at 2:46 pm (Holidays, Rants)

Hallmark has new gift bags called the “Peek-Busters”.  Why “Peek-Busters” you ask?  Well, these bags have motion activated sounds of police sirens.  And flashing lights!!!  On a bag.  In which you place someone’s present.  Seriously???

    So does this mean that you will or will not touch this type of bag if your present’s inside…..I wonder if they have one with an electric fence hmmmm

    I know, right!!? Like maybe instead of having a bag go off because the kids try to peek at their presents, maybe you should take their present and give it to charity instead. THAT would teach the little buggers to appreciate that they get a damn present!!! ARGH! Sorry, I am very jaded by Christmas…it makes me sad, since it is so consumer based. Sorry for the rant!

    @ Monster – While I’m not as jaded about Christmas, I agree with your sentiment. It’s so ridiculous, and I can’t believe how early all the crazyness starts! I mean, the day after Halloween? It’s just getting out of control, as with plenty of other things in these United States…
