It’s a fact – there are some pretty ugly sweaters out there, and the Christmas contest of wearing the ugliest sweater has become something of a tradition.
Enter PETA – the crazy, “anything for media attention” animal rights group. The same PETA that offered a 2018 Halloween costume of Donald Trump Jr. in bloody camo, a sign that reads “half-cocked” and a plush leopard in a crouching position on the shoulder — a pose described as “letting the leopard win.”
It seems that this year they have outdone themselves by offering the “Wool Hurts Ugly Holiday Sweater.” The limited-edition item says “wool hurts” in all caps above the PETA logo and features a large, 3-D bloodied sheep: Its mangled front torso sticks out from the front of the sweater, its rear from the back, according to a New York Post article.
PETA’s product description says, “PETA’s limited-edition "Wool Hurts" Ugly Holiday Sweater puts the ugliness of the wool industry front and center. Emblazoned with the words "WOOL HURTS" and featuring a 3D bruised and bloodied plush sheep protruding from the front to the back of the sweater, you’re guaranteed a chance to join in on the holiday fun while making a statement for animals.”
Yes folks, for a mere $149.99 you too can own this one-sized fits-all sweater made from 100% oil-based acrylic yarn.
