At some point (or now, honestly) you or a friend have been the owner of a really tacky, garish Christmas sweater. It’s an acquired taste, but if you’re a diehard fan of something else, say superheroes, you might look away from how terrible it looks if it has your favorite hero’s on it. You’ll be thinking more about the Spider-Man or Superman on the center of the sweater than the confusing, distracting pattern beneath him. Better yet, if you know someone who’s a superhero fan and you need a really good joke, then what better what to send them an ugly superhero sweater as a gift?
