Have You Ever Bought a TV Tie-In Product?

Would you like some Serenity by Jan candles? Or what about a MILF Island T-shirt? Both of those things were once as mere twinkles in some The Office or 30 Rock writer's eye, but after playing key roles in episodes of the NBC comedies a couple of weeks back, they became real-world products that you can own for yourself.

I love these inside-jokey products — I've been known to buy a Friday Night Lights fan a Crucifictorious T-shirt and once proudly gave my West Wing-loving friend a Bartlett for President mug. These TV tie-ins are also staples of my holiday gift guides. But what about you? Have you ever actually bought a TV-related product?

My friend bought me a Friends cookbook that had some of "Monica's recipes" in it. It didn't include Rachel's trifle recipe though. Custard? Good. Jam? Good. Beef? Goooood.

It can get a little freaky seeing something from the TV come into reality.

Nope, never. But the Serenity by Jan candles sound kinda cute.

i don't tend to obsess about the movies and shows i enjoy, but i do like a couple tie-in trinkets out there. i've gifted an Office Space Crystal Award (, received a bottle of Duff Beer ( and own a Team Ramrod t-shirt ( they're not my most prized possessions, but i enjoy them :)
