Your Daily Combo Merman-Indian Chief Christmas Ornament

October 14, 2011 — 35 Comments

Chief Merman Christmas Ornament from December Diamonds is a traditional tribal chief that leads a tribe.”

He must be the “traditional tribal chief” of one of those NW coast tribes. They really like their salmon. Ayyye.

Yeah, I have no idea. Luckily this guy is only $23.95, much unlike our lovely $7000 “Pueblo Clown Goes to Sturgis” from last week.

Happy Friday!

    Who buys this stuff? I mean, really who is their target demographic? I don’t even.

      It’s a gay fetish-y website. Therefore… either gays with BOTH a merman fetish and an NDN fetish. Or anyone else who wants to camp up Christmas- while keeping it racially tinged. Equally offensive are their “Black Bling Merman”, their “Black Biceps Merman” and the “Bones Merman” (the latter being a caricature of a Caribbean Native)…

        I never thought of racism as sparkly…

    What the….seriously little mermaid meets pocahontis who thinks of this stuff up? Tacky collectors junk. This is insulting to everyone.

      I agree! It’s insulting to Natives, to merpeople, to Christmas tree ornament aficianados, people’s intelligence…

    Check out the whole site, gang. It’s some kind of utterly bizzarro gay christmas ornament emporium. There’s a merman for every sort of gay you know! You could even assemble a fairly accurate Village People.

    But that’s definitely not a Pac NW Merman, that shit’s all wrong.
