Nice Holiday Sweater

Fake Steve Jobs blogged about this website which lets you create your own holiday sweater and it’s actually fricking brilliant.  In fact it’s so fricking brilliant that it’s “frilliant”.  That’s a new word I just made up.  Please add it to your spell-checkers.

 Anyway, I cyber-knitted this lovely holiday sweater for my sweet husband:


PS. My coworker just saw this and was all “Uh…why did you make the panda bear have sex with the deer?” which was unsettling because I think it’s pretty clear the panda is attacking the deer.  I mean, what on earth would a panda bear getting it on with a deer have to do with Christmas? 

Think, people.

  1. Embarrassed to say that was my first thought too — until I looked closer. Mind in the gutter, I guess.

  2. I totally went to my dirty place when I saw the picture. Is it wrong that I thought it was wildly funny even if it was dirty…

  3. No, I think the your workmate is right, there’s definitely some serious hide the sausage going on there. You can tell by the pick-up line.

  4. Oh Willowtree, if that’s your idea of a pick-up line I’m shocked you ever got married.

  5. I thought sex too. Maybe that says more about me than it does you 😉

  6. Um…am I the only one that knows Pandas are vegetarians? They only eat bamboo.
    I’d say he’s in it for the sex.

  7. That deer looks worried…

  8. It’s Christmas Mindy.

    We all indulge a little crazily this time of year. Even the vegans.

  9. “frilliant” – ok so that is awesome and I will begin using it immediately to spread the frilliance of that word. Seriously.

    There are no words for that shirt. I also thought the panda was doing something dirty but after the salad tossing that was going on here yesterday I don’t think I can be held fully responsible for heading down that path! 😉

  10. Sorry Jenny, this one is *definitely* about sex.

    Or, maybe it *is* being attacked.

    Either way… that poor little reindeer is very seriously screwed.


  11. Gotta go with the folks who went to the gutter at first glance.

  12. oh yeah, i’m in the gutter with the rest of you….

  13. That panda is totally trying to get some. Bow chicka bow bow.

  14. One more vote for SEX!

  15. JenE….you’re ‘frilliant’
    and I totally agree…the two animals
    are getting it on. What happens in the
    woods, stays in the woods.

  16. OMG – I’m still laughing. I’m heading over to make my own sweater right now!!!

  17. Those animals are definitely doing it. But the deer looks like he/she likes it.

  18. Ok, if it’s not about sex, then I don’t get it. Why exactly is a panda attacking a deer again and what does that have to do with Xmas?

    It’s probably too deep for me.

  19. Look at how that deer is dressed… I mean come on… it looks like he just wants it…

  20. Dude the Panda totally has it in for the reindeer’s ass. You’re just trying not to look like such a pervert.

  21. Uuummmm…. one more mind in the gutter. At least it was good for a laugh. Thank you for that!!

  22. I admit I also thought the Panda was mounting the deer, and still laughed my ass off. Either way, it is a great sweater.

  23. Uh…why did you make the panda bear have sex with the deer?

    That is exactly the thought that I had upon seeing your highly frilliant sweater. That’s fantastic.

  24. Frilliant…that’s frilliant! The word and the sweater and the web site.

    Using My Words

  25. Uh yeah….My mind was in the gutter too. Frilliant!

  26. Hmm. I thought he was humping the deer too. Still quite funny, tho!

  27. Off-topic, sort of… but did you see the guy at the mixer thing last week wearing the AWFUL Christmas sweater? I wanted to go over and comment on it, because it was so obviously meant to be ironic… but my friend wasn’t so sure. She was like, “What if he really thinks he looks good?” Whatever – if he really did think that, he would SO need to be told.

  28. I am basking in waves of validation. That is all.

  29. Six words…

    “Toss the salad with Cookie Monster.”

    I rest my case. Panda is making sweet, sweet love to the deer.

  30. Ouch! This post makes my butt hurt.

  31. I think it really is the panda raping the deer…and you are trying to pull the “wool” over our eyes. Tehehehehehe *snort*

  32. Yep…. I’m right there with everyone else. But I’ve seen the video – “How Vixen became a Vixen”, the next scene shows the Reindeer games eluded to in the song, but never explained.

  33. Yes, that is sex in the wild. I’ve seen it.

  34. oops – my mind immediately went to the gutter. Who would want a pandeer baby? talk about freaky.

  35. How did you get the text to say what you wanted instead of the suggested text on the page?

  36. A bit of photoshopping at

    Can you believe they didn’t have “This will only hurt for a moment” at the sweater site?

    Just A. Reader

    There’s gotta be a pun in there somewhere.

    Merry Xmas panda humpin’ you, deer?

    That doesn’t sound quite right. But am I at least leaning in the right general direction?

  38. I thought you were embroidering dirty, too. My bad!

  39. they’ll rip your ASS to shreads. 🙂

  40. That’s definitely some panda lovin’ goin on there.

  41. Ahh, I thought it was sexual abuse–you know the panda forcing himself on the deer. I didn’t think it was friendly.

  42. The panda was so getting ready to toss the deer’s salad. Geez. Even I knew that.

  43. I was in the cross species bow chicka bow wow camp too…. 🙂

  44. Definitely in the gutter. Even before I saw the picture. Because, you know, it’s on *your* blog.

  45. Umm, I got that the panda was attacking the deer (I’m very smart), but only after a few seconds of wondering if they were doing it. Very clever idea, and so much quicker than actually knitting.

  46. Is it a chocolate deer?

  47. An “Evil” petting zoo?

  48. Oh yah – I totally just saw mounting action too. But I’ve always known what a sick mind I possess. In fact, it has become a twisted source of pride 🙂

  49. You people concern me.

    Except you, me2d2. You complete me.

  50. I don’t know. I’ve heard pandas will fuck anything.

  51. Wow. I totally thought the panda was giving it to the deer, too.

  52. Another title for that would be “just breathe.”

    It’s frilliant.

  53. To Jenny and Family,

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
    from WT and Family

  54. I work the night in a hospital and you had us rolling on the floor with our *designer* sweaters…awesome! Thanks for the laugh and thanks for stopping by!

  55. Happy Christmas to you and yours from Nova Scotia, Jenny!

  56. I think you’re mistaken. That panda is definitely having sex with that deer. Which is weird, because I thought pandas only dated their own. Oh, and platypode (those freaky lil’ dudes will get it on with anything).

    By the way, all three make good eatin’.

    p.s. “platypode” is a fun word.

  57. HAHAHAHA ok so my three year old see this and says “Why do Pandas not like deer? Is he eating the deer? Why? They are hugging? No they are not, they are not friends!” HAHAHA

    Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
    May your family’s wishes all come true this coming year 🙂

  58. Jenny, I saw this today in my local paper and thought of you…lol. Just click on the image and it will enlarge.

    Merry Christmas!

  59. Brilliant. I’m totally sending my boss a fauxgift sweater as consolation for the handknit gift I never finished.

    Happy holidays!

  60. Frilliant indeed!

  61. I thought sex too. The phrase on top doesn’t help since that’s the cliche about women losing their virginity. Still, an awesome sweater. Also, “frilliant” is, indeed, frilliant.

  62. If I were a panda, I’d so tap that deer. But since I’m not, the authorities cannot come after me for making that statement.

    In related news, Merry Christmas.

  63. Umm… I was thinking the same thing as your co-worker. 😉
