What the Heck

I saw this in Lillian Vernon. I think she has jumped the shark. I mean ugly crap and old lady treasures are one thing but what the heck?
They are holiday pants treat holders in sets of 6. I have so many questions. What kind of treats go into these pants?
Why would you want 6 of them and not 10? Or 4? I wonder how they decided what constitutes a "set."If I got them for my kids and filled them with candy would I just say, "Go get a candy cane out of Santa's pants!"

Now I've seen everything. Don't buy them.

  1. AGREED. My first thought upon seeing them (Colorful Images is selling them too) was that NO ONE was eating treats out of anyone else's pants.

  2. Well there goes that neighborhood gift idea.

  3. I bet they come in sets of 6 so you have to buy two sets to complete a place setting or gift exchange or whatever other crazy reason you would have for buying them in the first place. And I really would not enjoy treats that came from pants, especially tacky pants.

  4. I would only buy these if they were Sting's pants.

  5. You could fill them up with milk duds and pass them out at the Halloween Party. Just sayin'.

  6. I really wish I had read this BEFORE I placed my order. Dang it!

  7. Uh yeah, Lillian Vernon? I stopped flipping through her catalog a while back...when I decided I had no need to stack three roles of toilet paper together and cover them with a witchy outfit that has our family's name stitched on it. I'm all for decorating for the holidays, but the bathroom should only contain a holiday soap dispenser at the most. So really, party favor pants make sense in Lillian Vernon's world.

  8. Brings all new meaning to the phrase "Having a party in your pants."

  9. After 5 kids, I've seen all the "treats" I'd like to see served up in a pair of pants, festive or otherwise.

  10. sue is so funny.

    when my little brother was on his mission, I used to cut super-gay things out of super-gay catalogs and send them with his letters (please don't tell Wanda Sykes that I said "gay")and say, "if I were rich, I would send you a care package full of:" all these clipped crazy things. Lillian Vernon is the mother lode for that. I'm going to gigggle about santa's pants for a long time.

    Also, Kacy, your haircut is really funky-fresh (I liked the Star Wars pix) and I admire your staycation courage. One day I will follow your example.

    Also, I think it's high time for me to meet you & Sue in person, so I will stalk you next time I come to the valley. And I am not afraid of your weener dogs.

  11. I'd eat the treat if it was a really good treat - I'd just toss the container.

    And believe it or not, I've seen worse.

  12. "What kinds of treats go into these pants?"



    Why, NUTS, of course!

  13. These are creepy... "One should never accept candy that has been taken out of someone's pants," pretty sure that's a good life motto.

    I see you're reading Drood, you're the only person I know of who has read it besides myself. What do you think?

  15. Over from Swaneesinger to check out your blog.

    I can envision lots of those pants holders put out at garage sales around the country next year!

  17. This comment has nothing to do w/this post...THANK YOU for your parental advice posts!! I just had my 4th baby and am in need of some real-life, survival mom advice. Another mom blog quoted some of your Parents mag advice and so I was desparate for more. More honesty and humor. Just what I needed! I was of course too late to get a copy of the mag, so I found your blog and searched it until I found your old posts.

  18. Snort! My Mom gets tons of Old Lady catalogs and even buys crap out of them. It will not surprise me at ALL if I see a set of Santa pants in her Christmas Village this year! LOL at this post!

  19. That is too funny. Do people just have a ridiculous amount of money and say, "Don't know what to do with this money. Guess I'll make some little treat trousers and sell them." and then they must think there will be some kind of demand for them, and people will buy them, right? I mean, isn't that the point? On TV the other day I saw a guy trying to sell a golf club which was also conveniently a urinal in one. Yes. A golf club you can pee into so you never have to interrupt your game. I ordered one right away.
