hmmm disturbing?

Does anyone else see something seriously wrong with this?
There were a bunch of these "homecare" catalogues in the mailbox today, and I thought I'd have a quick look... for some unknown reason. I would never buy anything... gah what a money trap.

Anyway, the first thing I noticed was this:
Santa's Trousers.
Imagine the delight on Christmas morning when your children wake up to find Santa's left his trousers behind and they are full of gifts! $7.90 (presents not included)

So I don't know about you, but if I was a child, I think I'd be rather horrified to know that some old man was running around my house without any pants on. And that's without even considering WHY he had taken his pants off in the first place? But maybe that's just me...

And as for the rest of the stuff in these catalogues, it just disgusts me, most of it. Do people really not have enough stuff to spend their money on without wasting it on junk like this? I can just hear Peter Walsh groaning.

Cause we all know we need a set of Tasty Watermelon Bowls or perhaps our very own set of Charming Cockerel Mugs.
But wait! The must have item of all time, the Easy lace-look shelf decoration!

PMSL at those pants! who's want their presents stuffed into a pair of pants anyway?!

Hee hee hee! "Santa leaving his trousers behind full of gifts" does not bring pleasant things to mind. Maybe the person who wrote the description realized how completely awful they were and tried to warn people off?
