This Christmas (or Hanukkah… or Kwanzaa), you may have received a few kitschy gifts here and there. (We know you got that Honey Boo Boo “
You Betta Redneckogize” trucker hat — just admit it.)
But did any of that kitsch involve cable news personalities?
If you’re a regular reader of this website, we imagine your bedroom is lined with framed pictures of your favorite cable news “clashes” and “battles” of all-time, your kitchen stocked with customized coffee mugs with your favorite “slams” and “blasts” from cable news hosts, and your closet full of t-shirts with the best cable news screenshots.
But since none of those things are available in the real world, these seven cable news collectibles, available online, would have sufficed:
There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
Get it?!?! It's an
S.E. Cupp Cup! Available for $12 at the official store, you can drink out of a mug with your favorite MSNBC conservative commentator's face. And hey, when your liberal significant other shouts at the TV, "That S.E. Cupp is so full of crap!" you can crack the lame joke: "Well, my S.E. Cup is so full of coffee."
Nancy Grace Gavel
sure demands a lot of justice. And you can demand it along with her. Pound this collectible official " Nancy Grace Nancy Grace Gavel" on your desk as you watch Grace get to the bottom of the biggest crime stories of the year. Or you can pound the gavel to demand "Order!" whenever you catch Grace getting into one of her tense battles with our very own publisher on Dan Abrams Good Morning America.
Fox News Snuggie!
When you get home from a long day of work, you and your significant other like to wind down by relaxing on the couch to watch
The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity, and On the Record. What better way to get into that calm, comfortable mood than to don an official Fox News snuggie -- the blanket that you wear -- made with "super soft fleece."
Ed Schultz Girlie Tee
This official "Psycho Talk"
girlie tee shirt is perfect for your girlfriend who loves the progressive MSNBC talker and his signature segment. "Sure to keep you comfortable even when Ed makes the politicians sweat," Ed Schultz says the MSNBC store. Oh yeah, baby.
CNN Table Bell
Bed-ridden with one of those pesky winter bugs? Need a creative way to get your significant other's attention while you intently watch
deliver your sick day's news? This Wolf Blitzer official CNN table bell should suffice.
Mad Money Squeezies
Following the stock market can be stressful. But don't worry, perhaps
's investment advice is there to comfort you. To supplement that, there's always the official Jim Cramer Mad Money squeezie toys to help get you through a stressful moment in stock-watching. The full CNBC set includes a squeezie for every mood -- there's the bull to "squeeze the heck out of when] you are running low on your Mad Money," the bear to "take out your frustration" over a bearish market, and the pig to squeeze when "the market[s] have you feeling 'piggy' about Mad Money."
Uhh... Julie Banderas Candid Photos?
Umm... so this one isn't exactly "silly," but rather just downright creepy. And of course, it's definitely not available at the Fox News official store. Not quite sure what you can do with these, but if you or your loved ones have ever wanted a set of candid pictures of Fox national correspondent
setting up for a live report, there's always Julie Banderas this eBay listing.
