“The rudest thing you can ever give anybody [is] a fruit basket. I can buy a goddamn pear. I’m always shocked when I open one of these. Who would dare send me ten pears? I can buy a pear, you know? It’s not so hard to find a pear. I think gift baskets should be drugs or cigarettes, things you’d never buy for yourself. I don’t take drugs or smoke cigarettes anymore, but I think a gift basket filled with them would terrific. A pear. How dare you think I’d—you know, I’m always shocked when I get them. I said it at my Christmas show last year and Marianne Boesky did send me ten pears, which I thought was really funny.” -artist, director, author, John Waters will do his annual Christmas Show December 13 and 14 in NYC. Get tickets here. You can buy pears here. (Photo: Harry & David, via Gothamist)

I know you’ve been in a blind panic, thinking to yourselves “the holiday’s are here ALREADY? What am I going to get James St James?” Well, take a deep breath. Relax. I’ve got you covered. Just get me this stunning Ana Khouri 18 karat rose gold and diamond hand bracelet (or “knucklet”) from the Barneys Christmas catalogue. Lovely, isn’t it? It’s only $21,200 – very affordable in these tough economic times. Perfect for everyday wear as well as evenings out on the town. Of course, mother always said that rose gold was vulgar, so perhaps you could have one custom made in platinum? That wouldn’t be too much of a bother, would it? Thanks, doll. Oh, and Merry Christmas!
