No sport offers up a more bewildering array of souvenir
crap memorabilia than NASCAR, and They Make It digs deep into the corners of the Internet to bring all that strangeness to light. Today:
The item: Father's Day Fruit Baskets, around $80 from EdibleArrangements.com.
The deal: It's Father's Day, and what would Dad like better than a big ol' pile of fruit? (No, don't say "anything.") Edible Arrangements has a whole range of fruit stacks available with the numbers of all your favorite drivers, from Joey Logano to Dale Earnhardt Jr., and you know what that means — the usual litany of driver cheap-shots!
Let's begin: The Joey Logano fruit basket isn't yet ripe ... The Dale Earnhardt Jr. fruit basket arrives late, with an apology blaming everybody else for the tardiness ... Tthe Tony Stewart fruit basket is made of meat and sausage ... The Sam Hornish Jr. fruit basket arrives smashed up against the inside of its package ... And that would be your cue to begin.
