An Alabama White Trash Christmas

There are Christmas gifts. Then there are these. Courtesy of Busted Coverage. Above, you see the @jordanpmitchell family Christmas card photo. Nothing says season’s greetings like a couple of shotguns. As for normal gifts: The Bama onesie. @johnnyr1217  Bama mom @julieonssi got a license plate cover from Santa.  Santa brought @kristen_is Bama jeans.  In the Bama food department, the Christmas gift of the year was received by @littlewood112‘s brother. Yes, that’s a Bama toaster that burns an A into your toast. Yes, there is Bama peanut butter and jam and one guy got this crazy Bama gift pack. (via @TheBrianFikes)
