The Christmas Tree Poster… so realistic visitors fooled into thinking it’s real!?!

Directly from from their website….

The heart-warming image of a family decorating a Christmas tree is a festive classic: stockings hanging above the fireplace as mom and dad arrange the tinsel; faces lighting up as twinkling lights are draped across branches; holiday tunes playing on the radio as cockney street urchins throw snowballs outside…

The point is this cozy cliché is a load of movie malarkey. Put simply, Christmas trees are a freakin’ nightmare. It’s a miracle if the lights work, there are needles and smashed balls all over the floor and you can never quite reach the fairy (insert your own joke here). And that’s after you’ve nearly broken your back carrying the thing home.

Santa Sliding Down the Chimney Flash Drive

When the kids start asking how is Santa coming if "we don’t have a fireplace", just slap them upside the head pull one of these out and let them watch as you "slide" Santa down the chimney (and retract the USB connect at the same time). Who says you don’t have a chimney for Santa to slide down?

These ever so loverly chimney-ish stocking flash drives are available in 1G or 2GB sizes (anything less than that is almost worthless – isn’t it?) I couldn’t find prices at their website. But maybe you’ll have better luck.
