The souvenir that makes you groan, 'What was I thinking?'
Editors will tell you that you can't shrug or smile or laugh a quote. But they can't dispute that people can groan a quote, especially when it comes to these awful souvenirs. Some are so awful, in fact, that Doug Lansky, who has scored big with his funny SignSpotting book series, has a new entry: "Crap Souvenirs: The Ultimate Kitsch Collection." Lansky says: 'Crap Souvenirs' is just a snarky way of saying funny and weird kitsch souvenirs. It's really a celebration of the entertainment value of some of the awesomely kitsch souvenirs that may not have been placed right beside the cash register. I suppose I was looking for something that evoked an emotion that landed somewhere between a cringe and a laugh." These do that. Please enjoy/be embarrassed that you might have bought something like this.
