OOHHH we (my parents and their friends) pass the flamingos! It just started out as a mutual hatred of yard flamingos... to sticking a flamingo in the other''s yard... flamingo margarita glasses... flamingo lamps... all things flamingo hideous!Date: 11/26/2007 11:17:05 PM

Ahhhhhhhhahahahaha! Those ornaments are so ugly, I can''t stand it! I didn''t know they made ugly ornaments!
We''re having an ugly baby photo contest at work, this totally reminded me of that!
It''s one of the big highlights of Christmas in my family. Everyone but my hubby and I have already purchased their ornaments and are laughing about them, but keeping them secret, of course. If you can find my thread from last year you''ll certainly get a kick out of some of the things people came up with.
ETA: the competition has also resulted in the tradition of passing the most hideous, oversized fake rat -- my dad purchased it to scare my sister and mom at Halloween, and then decided to dress up as an ornament -- back and forth amongst my parents, my husband and myself from holiday to holiday. It is now adorned with turkey feathers, a birthday sign, a t-shirt that says ''Worlds Greatest Dad'', 4th of July holiday beads, and other odd things. I think he''s being returned to us soon, and I look forward to what he has grown into...or perhaps I should be scared. My mom claims he''s been decorated enough to hide his ugliness, I don''t think he''s there quite yet.
Okay....you officially have the best family ever. I wanna play with my family!!!!!
I do have a pretty fantastic family, I must say. I am a lucky lady to have been born into them. And I encourage you to start the tradition with your own family, it is truly a hysterically fun time.
I have to agree...that is just really really funny. In a poignant-weird kinda way.Date: 11/27/2007 12:44:57 AM
ROFLMAO omg got me to laugh hard enough to snort... outloud even.. Steve asked me what was so funny.. LMAO.. too funny. Priceless.. really it is.Date: 11/26/2007 11:05:05 PM
OH, I wish my mom still had all of her uglies. Unfortunately, she lost all of her hideous Christmas ornaments when their house burnt down a few years ago.
Luckily enough, I was already married when the fire occurred, and so had been bestowed with my very own set of these handmade fantasies. Here is one of the dearest.
Yes, it IS a styrofoam ball. Yes, it has been hollowed out with the flaming hot lava end of a glue gun. Yes, it did stink terribly for days. Yes, that is a Christmas card cut up and placed ever so gently in the center of the crispity whiteness. Yes, it is plastic ribbon and plastic beads encircling the ball. And, Yes, it is hung my fishing line. Yes, it was used fishing line.
Maybe you could make something like this for your OWN tree.
I shouldn''t speak so badly about these grotesque things. My mom did her best to decorate a tree for us when we had no money. tsk tsk on me!
It looks like it was beheaded and put on a platter. DOG UGLY fer sure!Date: 11/27/2007 1:38:45 AM
Ok, I have two beagles, and this beagle jingle bell ornament is the ugliest depiction of a beagle I''ve ever seen. So there, TG, maybe it''s not as ugly as your green screaming looking thing, but it''s fugly. LOL!
