    Article listing - 8 Truly Embarrassing City Souvenirs

    http://www.theatlanticcities.com/art...ouvenirs/2700/

    Would you consider these bad ?
    Have you seen/purchased any thing worse ?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Who is paying $43 AUS for that? Seriously?

    One of the worst souvenirs from my fair city:
    The 9-foot-tall, 300-pound Lady Liberty statue for $3,600.

    Shipping charges and tax are extra.

    "...no returns will be accepted."

    She's also available for rental--you know, for parties and events.

    Additional details @statue:
