The Ugly Holiday Sweater.
What tacky gift-giving guide would be complete without them?
And thanks to eagle-eye reader Kolytyi, we have some tacky animal-themed holiday sweaters to share! Both of these were found at Amazon.com. I’ve linked the photos to the Amazon page. Last I saw, they’re out of stock…. thank Dog!
I also found this:
Have YOU found any tacky animal themed gift ideas this year? We’ve got two shopping weekends left before Christmas, so send those gift ideas to me at rumpysanta at gmail dot com, and I’ll share them with everyone! woo woo woo!

I have to make a confession: I love christmas sweaters ( the second one is just great!) There said it. I feel better now LOL :o)
I could see you in that sweater, Easy! woo woo woo!
I don’t think number 3 counts. It’s not really about animals per se. Rather it’s intended to insult humans by using the word animal as a pejorative. You’re gonna hate me, but I kind of like it. It’s got that merry Christmas to all… and to all – shut the *$$* up feel. My inner Scrooge can appreciate it.
We can agree to disagree on that one. If it’s about people, why does it use us animals to disrespect them?
I agree that the term “animal” when applied to people is disrespectful of animals. But when you say to someone, “this house is a pig sty,” or “a chimp could do your job,” although you are indeed disrespecting those animals, the point is to insult humans.
Conversely, we use animal abilities to laud people as well. “He’s a tiger in the workplace,” or “she shows good horse sense.” Dogs get the worst deal of all. “A dog in the manger attitude.” “I wouldn’t wish it on a dog.” “I’m sick as a dog.” English is very anachronistic. That’s why I like it so much. 🙂
Good grief! These should for sure win an ugly sweater contest!
Those first two sweaters are so weird…..hangover reindeer?! OMD….I feel sorry for the reindeer….
and the third sweater is….*sigh* …..But…..in fact, I thought that the last picture looks pretty…*hemhem*
Well…..of course, it’s good for children though….
Merry Christmas and a rifle! I can’t find anything involving guns amusing.
WE have SnowFreak Sweaters… do THOSE count???
I’m sure you’re able to pull off that look guys!
Thanks goodness no one has actually gifted me with one of this monstrosities. Yoicks.
P.S. I like your new template. Very clean and airy. Easier to read.
Hmmmm those are definitely interesting gifts……..I must say I would SO not buy those sweaters even for my worst enemy! Lol I’ll have to see if I can fine some weird gift ideas for ya and send them your way lol
I’m not sure if anyone else noticed, but the third one was actually a movie quote, it was used in ‘Home Alone’ at least three times! While I don’t quite agree with the message, I can appreciate the movie reference, and that is what made me chuckle.
Rumpy, you have a great sense of humor (dogs usually do). I was wondering, have you thought about creating a line of sweaters for dogs that feature humans in an unflattering light? Kind of like a reverse of those dog shaming photos? I know you’re probably really busy this time of year, but that could be a cash cow–if you know how to knit or sew.
Haha! Love this sweater.
That took tacky Christmas sweaters to a whole new level there! 🙂
Why would anyone want those clothes? Yuck.
…I got my mother-in-law a sweater for christmas. Now I’m angsting that it’s actually super ugly. Oh well! BOL!
Good grief all I can say is thank goodness it’s summer at Christmas time here..they are some pretty tacky jumoers hahahah 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx
yucky stuff!xx Speedy
I hate to be the scrooge in the bunch but here we go….I have always, all my life, even as a child hated holiday clothing. Not just Christmas clothing, sweaters most especially but all holidays.
