Your Christmas Shopping Woes Solved!


As I explained earlier, I like to get Christmas shopping out of the way early in the season to avoid having to go amongst the frenzied mass of humanity in stores. Another good way to avoid the frenzy is to shop online, which is becoming more and more popular.

I realize it’s possible some of you are still casting about for the perfect gift for a family member or friend, so as a public service to those of you still in the throes of decision, I offer this link to Ship of Fools’ Twelve Days of Kitcshmas!

Each year, the Ship’s editors and readers comb teh internets for the oddest, wackiest, most tasteless religious-themed gift items … for your viewing, and perhaps even buying, pleasure. This year’s offerings range from the sincerely (if misguidedly) spiritual Christ on a motorbike, through the blatantly mocking Hip Flask Bible, to the “What could they possibly have been thinking???!!” Huggable Urns — not forgetting the earnestly political Walled Nativity. As always, there are items to amuse, to horrify, to revolt … and, as always, at least one that I have to shamefacedly admit I wouldn’t totally mind owning. (You guess which one — and no, it’s not the Thongs of Praise pictured above!!)

OK, this may not solve any of your gift-giving problems — but I promise, it’ll be good for a few laughs.

  1. Thongs of Praise???? I can’t find the words.

  2. The amazing thing is that it’s NOT the worst thing on there.

  3. I’m can’t decide if I’d rather comment:

    1. Oh….my….


    2. Doesn’t everyone already have that though?

    BTW, I just posted my book review for “His Dark Materials” (The Golden Compass books). I’d love to know what you think, fellow bookworm. 🙂
