Funny Sh*t for NYG and Iggles Fans

Yeah, copy and paste. Sometimes the jokes just write themselves.... This is from the Philly Courier Post.

 

N.Y. Giants collectibles? Spare me

 

Here’s good news for Philadelphia Eagles

fans.

 

Sure, the Birds have fallen short of Super

Bowl success again this year, depriving the

region of a long-awaited victory parade.

 

But we’re also missing out on a more

dubious prize — the cascade of

knickknacks that deluges fans of Super

Bowl winners. And just like Andy Reid

settling for bargain-basement linebackers,

we’re saving big bucks in the process.

 

After all, unlike fans of the, ugh, New York

Giants, we’re not paying $415 for a “Super

Bowl XLVI Champions 10-karat gold charm

necklace.” And we’re saving on more

middle-brow buys at the G-men’s online

gift shop — like the $100 three-piece gold

coin set that salutes the recent

championship.

 

We can even pass on cheaper gifts that

apparently target Giants fans in the outer-

most borough of North Jersey. I’m talking

tchotchkes like Super Bowl-celebrating vinyl

car mats, just $35 for a two-pack. Or, in

an inspiring tribute to the team’s Lombardi

Trophy, a $6 pack of Giants “absorbent

car coasters.”

 

Now, having rooted for the Eagles all my

life, I had no idea this winner’s market

even existed.

 

Then I spotted a recent ad for a bizarre

doll — a diapered baby, all chubby and

cute, wearing eye black and a Giants cap,

and leaning on a little football. The kid’s

plopped on a Giants blanket with this

message near his tiny feet: “Is it Sunday

yet?”

 

“This doll is not a toy, but a fine

collectible,” says the ad from an Illinois

firm, which identifies the $40 keepsake as

the kickoff for a “New York Giants #1 Fan

Commemorative Doll Collection.”

 

I believe the Eagles have a similar product

— except the diaper needs changing, the

football’s deflated and the blanket’s

inscription asks: “For who? For what?”

 

To my surprise, the doll ad was in this very

newspaper — an indication that, just as

pine beetles are creeping up from the

south, a plague of Giants fans is spreading

from the north.

 

On the plus side, these weird items can help us identify the interlopers in our midst.

 

Watch out for new neighbors with Super Bowl XLVI cuttings boards (just $XL) or any kid clutching a Giants-glorifying toy monkey (that’s $XX).

 

Really be on the alert for transplants obsessed enough to buy their own gold-plated Super Bowl rings — just $200 from another Illinois company. It’s “dramatic from any angle,” which sadly in our case, means looking up.

 

And if you’re ever in a bathroom that has a $25 Giants locker room towel — well, a real Eagles fan will know what to do.

 

Still, there’s no avoiding the Giants’ fans’ good fortune.

 

“You can add a little Giants SB Champions swagger to any outfit,” says an ad for the team’s $20 Lifetile necklace. I don’t know what “Lifetile” means, but I suspect the team’s working its way up to the next level. “Reptile.”

 

Also, Giants fans can toast their team’s Super success with a commemorative two-ounce shot glass, a 16-ounce latte mug, a 28-ounce ceramic stein and a 32-ounce water bottle.

 

Birds’ followers, in contrast, must seek solace with the “Didn’t Even Make the Playoffs Ten-Gallon Beer Bucket.” And just like this year’s team, you know that’s hardly enough to do the job.
