The Misbegotten Madonna

I don’t know how I landed on the mailing list, other than the abuse of some demographic profile, but there it was in the in-box, an invitation to do some holiday shopping at the Official Store.

The invitation reads:

Happy Holidays from the Madonna Store,

We’ve got a lot of great items for the Madonna fans in your life (even if that’s you!). Check out the 2005 Wall Calendar featuring beautiful photography by Steven Klein for each month. Or the vintage “Who’s That Girl Tour `87” Shirts. Or the recently released Adventures of Abdi children’s book, which you can buy with an exclusive tee-shirt featuring artwork from the book. Plus, there are plenty of old favorites including trucker hats, mousepads, ladies’ Zip-up hoodie, the magnet sets and many more!

Don’t forget about the unique Nesting Doll, which we are still taking pre-orders for in the next few days. This limited edition item will be shipping next week, so get your order in while you still can!

As a special bonus, through the end of the holidays, we are offering a special deal: purchase the 2005 Calendar and you can get 10% off your entire order. So buy that calendar, add in anything you’d like, and take 10% off the whole purchase. (Please note: this discount does not apply for the Nesting Dolls.)

Plus, as an added bonus, if you spend $25 or more in a single purchase, you can have a one-year subscription to Rolling Stone magazine included in your order. That’s a $12.97 value to you, just for supporting Madonna! Just shop as you normally would and you will be offered the subscription at checkout.

Enjoy the holidays!

Trucker hats? That is so last year.
