The Onion On My Internet Belt

You may recall that last week’s blog had a firm dose of irony throughout. Well, it turns out that some cosmic force saw fit to bestow upon me another fantastic piece of irony via the post this week.

Among the standard volume of papers that go from mailbox directly into the recycling bin, there was a catalog from a brand that I had never seen before. The name of the catalog? Touch of Class.

Being raised on American Consumerism as I have been, I’ll flip through any catalog for fun and I’m glad I did because I do so enjoy a good slice of irony.

Here are a selection of real products from this catalog. Note that many are on sale.



Originally $185?! Must be classy for that price! And two color options!



Not classy enough yet? Then try leopard print!


gold foil

Gold as an investment strategy? A steal at $85!


dollar bills

Class, like Donald Trump level classy.

And last, but certainly not least in this parade of “classy” is…


An exclusive. Note the secondary fruit innuendo up front. Double classy!

Need I say more?
