Whoosh! Just in time for Christmas. Oh, goody!

Sorry if this is a repeat but I just ran across this ad, presumably airing on Fox News:





From what I gather at other sites? This is in fact real as in horror time real--The Trumpy Bear.

1. WTH? Is this for real?

Adults cuddling with a stuffed bear? On second thought, can't make this stuff up!

3. No, you can't . . .

make this stuff up or discount the idea of making money off the public's ignorance.

Ugh!

4. Saying they're twisted is . . .

being kind, even genteel.

There's an American flag blankie rolled into the back of Trumpy Bear's neck. As a selling point? Makes all the difference, I'm sure.

Wrapped in a flag carrying a Bible. I'm surprised they didn't consider the latter item.

9. I would think

But then, these loons only give lip service as regards respecting the flag. Or the Rule of Law.

5. Just to verify the legitimacy of the ad

This from the VOX site:

Despite all evidence to the contrary (the juvenile graphic design, the absurdity of the product, the canned lines from customers), Trumpy Bear is, in fact, real. Snopes confirmed its authenticity and reports that the stuffed animal is produced by Exceptional Products, a Texas-based company that makes products advertised on television such as the Hairdini “magic styling wand.”

The ad ran this morning on Fox News, which often airs ads for items like, say, gold coins, but people on Twitter claimed that ads for Trumpy Bear have been airing on the History Channel for about a year.


Guess I haven't watched enough programming over on the History Channel.

7. In so many ways this "product" is so twisted and wrong.

There are folks out there that are a different species, those that find this appealing much less anything but retching.

11. Hahaha!

I had to look this up to refresh my memory: leisure time bears, gay bears and Pyros, the hyper-promiscuous bear.

Too funny!
