Tomorrow is the first day of December, and we're already being inundated with Christmas crap! Here's a handy buyers guide.

The holiday is about the winter solstice and birth of Jesus Christ, but you'd never know it from the North Pole outhouse figurines, Troy Polamalu and pickle ornaments. Some of the weird stuff out there is actually kind of cool, like battery-operated Animal playing the drums. Some of it is kitschy, like Godzilla stomping Tokyo or Spock and Kirk battling to the death. But then there's plenty of Christmas junk that's plain bad. Terrible idea, poor execution, mind-blowingly ugly — the gang's all here!
