Tacky christmas sweater

    My favorite sorority came up with a hell of an idea for next Friday.

    From the MySpace Event Invite: "Time to dust off that old tacky Christmas sweater Grandma Bessy knitted years ago.... we're rockin an old fashioned Christmas party at our place. Tacky Christmas sweater is required!!!"

    The problem is, Grandma Bessy never knitted me one. I never even owned one as a kid, much less one that would fit now. Furthermore, it's practically impossible to find these for guys - they basically only sell them for women.

    I've checked a couple thrift stores and Goodwills, but have turned up empty.

    Does anybody have one they wanna sell me on the cheap?

    Here's the example the girls gave:


    I wouldn't miss this for the world. What am I going to do?

    No Xmas sweaters, but I used to have plenty of ugly ass sweaters.

    Oh, if only I still had my 8th grade and freshman year wardrobe. I had this totally gauche bumblebee yellow Bugle Boy cardigan. It also had an interwoven BB on one side. There was also a solid pink cable knit somewhere in my closet that I actually wore more than once.

    No wonder I couldn't even get a handjob when I was 14.

    IJAG, you're like my favorite person.

    "Every stitch is knit with a smile."

    Inky, props for the Cosby suggestion, too. I've found some hideous color combinations, but no Christmas Cosby sweaters.

    If I ended up getting a women's large, how tight would it be on a guy who wears a men's large? Men's mediums are pretty tight on me.

    Of course IJAG knows about sweaters.

    Women do get wooly, after all.

    I'm glad someone got the reference. Kudos, Zeke.
