HTBI whoopee cushion makes Onion’s AV Club top (ridiculous) swag of 2009.

The good news: The Onion‘s AV Club placed the How to Be Inappropriate promotional whoopee cushion, which was mailed out with most review copies, on their list of “The year in swag: 27 ridiulous promotional items we received in 2009.” Check it out here.

Said whoopee placed #6 on the list, behind a Where The Wild Things Are fur tie and a lot of zombie/vampire swag, and well ahead of a mini bullet-proof vest promoting Steven Seagal: Lawman.

The bad news: They didn’t read the book!  They were so overwhelmed by the fart balloon they couldn’t bring themselves to open the pages.

Oh well. Win some and you far some.
