Jersey Chair: It's too late for Christmas, but you can still order one in time for International WTF? Day.

I love that the most prominent sample is a Theo Fleury Belfast Giants shirt. Actually, pretty ingenious approach to transferring a jersey someone already owns to a chair to get around any intellectual property and licensing concerns.

Still order one in time for International WTF? Day. That's too good. Plus, I can't think of a living room set where one of these things wouldn't match perfectly.

I thought it was funny 'n cute until I saw the price tag.

I don't have any Canadian Money. This is blatant discrimination! I cry for justice.

I'm sure there is a DIY video out there somewhere that's probably a helluva lot cheaper.

Personally speaking, if I wanted my jersey and my chair to become one, I'd just drape the thing over the chair and give my cat a week or two to work it over.

That reminds me of those chairs they make out of old skis. They look like they'd pinch your ass and draw blood.

Ski slivers are the worst

Why would you want to take a perfectly good jersey and turn it into a chair? Although this might be a good idea with a cherished, deceased pet. Or perhaps loved one. Missing those romps in the park with Fido? Turn him into an ottoman! Long for the days of sitting in your Grampas lap? Poof! He's a recliner! I am biased, of course, as my girlfriend owns a frame shop so I don't have to cut mine to ribbons and turn them into Laz-E-Boys.

If I had $995 Canadian to spend I may just spend it on one of those things. They're sweet even if they are expensive.

Do they only make hockey jersey chairs? I would love to have a Yankee's chair, so that I can sit in it after I make #2 and forget*(oops!) to whipe my butt.

Somehow, I believe you.

If I had $995 Canadian to spend I may just spend it on one of those things. And if I had $995 Canadian, I'd complain long and loud to my bank about it.

Just wait a year or two, el mano negro, what with the dollar plunging like it is, your hypothetical $995 Canadian will buy you a house in the US.

What will those crazy canadians think of next? Thousand dollar ashtrays from Barry's homerun balls? Baseball rookie card ashtrays? They call us ridiculous.

For that kind of money, I want to sit in Cassie Campbell's lap, not just on her jersey.

For C$995, you'd think they'd include the jersey.

I was going to ask if this is how jerseygirl was made, but she beat me here. There's a patent pending for this. Wow.

I saw this link, and I thought it was going to be some form of an empty oil drum with some Giants, Nets and Devils logos, and Bon Jovi RULZ grafitti on it. That actually would have been better.

For C$995, you'd think they'd include the jersey. I think if they took this approach, they may have licensing/legal issues.

Color Me Badd? For reals? Awesome!

You're dating yourself, chico, you autoincestuous minx you.

Hey JG, if I send you my "Color Me Badd" CD, could you get them to autograph it for me? And do you offer vacation packages?

at $995C for a 5 night stay but all dates are blocked out
