The ugliest ornament ever...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
We were putting up our tree last night, and I came across the ugliest ornament ever. The Prospector of the Old West.
http://www.grandmasgiftware.com/prod...idproduct=8310

Now this image doesn't do it justice. It's HUGE and takes up almost an entire branch.

The best is the companion one that is a guy on the back of a horse with a shotgun. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a guy with a shotgun. Nothing at all.

But "You can earn 14 Grandmas Under the mattress CASH on this product!"!!!!! Surely that's reason enough to buy it

That definitely is an interesting ornament, not the prettiest for a christmas tree...but you never know!

I'll look at that at home because once I got to the end of the page I was laughing too hard.

Umm well it is interesting looking.

I agree with you! That's pretty darn ugly.

The worst ornament I've ever seen was a Mr. Hankey, the Christmas poo, from South Park: http://www.gearlog.com/images/MrHankey.jpg A friend gave us one years ago and it's remained in the bottom of the Christmas box... I don't know what to do with it.

I don't really think it's ugly, more odd than ugly.

I like how some of the links they had went to Bronner's. That's a Christmas store in MI that supposedly imports its Christmas items from all over the world.

I Love it! You should leave Mr. Hanky on there! Does it talk? That would be even better if it said "Hiddy-Ho!" each time you walked past the tree

That is quite odd for an ornament. Looks more like it should be a figurine to me.

Well now I know what to get my Step-brother next Christmas! He'd hang it on his wall or better yet from the ceiling fan in his bedroom.

No, I guess he's more like a stuffy except he has a loop for hanging. I'm kind of glad he doesn't talk! Sorry, I don't believe he'll fly on the tree this year. Our nine-year-old did the decorations and she's not going to want a big poo with a Santa hat on the tree because the colors are all wrong.

I LOve the "Redneck Baby with Buck Teeth" ornament! Perhaps they could re-name it, "Child of Brittney"?

Also,the eBay snowman "crafted from organic horse-poop" (how could poop NOT be organic??!!?). And it's "hand-selected". Somehow, that choice of wording just makes me queasy...

Hey, it works in OUR house! When I say we have a "blast" at Christmas, I mean it literally!

My dear mother gave us a Statue of Liberty ornament since we live in New York State. Her flame is lighted, she is rather large, but worse.....she plays the Star Spangle Banner every time the tree lights are turned on. It's loud enough that whoever is still in bed when the tree is turned on is compelled to jump out of bed and put their hand over their heart. We have made fun of this so much over the years and now it's become a tradition. Luckily she doesn't day Hi-de-ho!

Edit: I used to put all the "ugly" ornaments to the back of the tree. We got a revolving stand this year, so now my strategy is to put them inside the tree as far as they will go.

We were really bad one year. One of DH's aunts gets picked on all the time by her nephews. So when making Christmas cookies (cut out) we (DH, his brother, and I) had some left over dough and made a special cookie of a certain male part of the body!

It mysteriously got hung on their aunt's Christmas tree - we even colored it to look more real!
