Johnson Smith Catalog to Offer Outsourced-Inspired Items


Just in time for Valentine's Day, NBC has announced that the February issue of Johnson Smith’s Things You Never Knew Existed catalog will feature novelty items inspired by the Thursday night series Outsourced. Give that special someone a pair of the “World’s Largest Briefs” and a “Farting Fanny Bank" to show how much you care.

The two-page spread in the TYNKE catalog will be showing up in mailboxes the week of February 14, but online shoppers can find the items starting today at Like the fictitious company on the show, Johnson Smith carries hundreds of tongue-in-cheek items for the customer with a sense of humor.

In an NBC press release Johnson Smith's VP of marketing Kim Boyd commented, “We're all about getting a reaction and generating a belly laugh. That show makes us laugh out loud, and so do our products! It's a match made in heaven.”

If your Valentine doesn't have a funny bone, or if for some inexplicable reason you just don't think it's the appropriate occasion, have no fear. The items will be available through May 2011.
