‘Freedom Tray’ Is Perfect Xmas Gift For Every Single Person In America

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Fuck yeah.
Do you have a hard time balancing a lap-full of bacon burgers and grease tacos while you drive around slurping caramel-coffee ice cream shakes and 172-oz. buckets of Mr. Pibb? Did foreigners steal your job? Wondering why your teen-aged daughter has so many middle-aged male friends from the MySpace showing up at all hours? What you need is the Freedom Tray. Meet the Freedom Tray. Buy the Freedom Tray. Experience Freedom.

What is the Freedom Tray, you ask? Well put down your Koran and take your dick out of that guy’s mouth and we will tell you:

Is this a patriotic tray?

The Freedom Tray is a tribute to the world class manufacturing and dedication of the hard working people of this country. We are proud that the Freedom Tray is completely made and manufactured in the USA with US-made materials. Also, as the name implies, the tray provides you the freedom to live an organized, spill-free and uncluttered life without changing your day-to-day routine.

How much weight can the Freedom Tray hold?

Be assured that the Freedom Tray is designed to hold all you can load in it. The Freedom Tray can hold up to 75 lbs. of weight in the center of the tray, with the legs deployed. This is one tough tray!

Can I order accessories?

These are for future accessories. Check back soon for details.

Yeah whatever, these are just holes for the rope so you can attach the Freedom Tray to your neck, for hands-free eating of 75 pounds of hamburgers. Merry Christmas, everybody! Enjoy your Freedom! (Tray.) [Freedom Tray, via Wonkette operative Garrett Quinn]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    But will the legs fit on either side of the motorized scooters that morbidly obese Americans need to get around Wal-Mart? Actually, will the legs fit on either side of most Americans?

  • OpusOne

    Sadly, the Freedom Tray isn’t Free. NEVAR FORGIT.

  • WarAndG

    As seen on the Fox News. It comes with 50 American Flag napkins. While supplies last. No purchase necessary? Screw you, freedom isn’t free libtard.

  • Yes You Can Own A Piece of History

    Needs more jeebus pictures.

  • iwillsavethispatient

    Surely that’s just half a beer-pong table?

    Also, only holds 75 pounds? That’s less than the weight of a Real American’s arm.

  • Mustang

    Again with hating the freedom, Mr. Smarty Smart Wonkette.

  • coolcatdaddy

    Now I’ll never have to touch my burger and fries again as I shove them into my mouth.

    Thanks, Freedom Tray!

  • StoneAge

    [re=469297]OpusOne[/re]: You’re right, it costs $19.95.

  • M.Yazz

    What the hell ever happened to just eating at the dinner table?

  • SmutBoffin

    Shit. Ken. Whenever you write about the mall-hopping and grease-guzzling habits that are components of the Modern American Condition, I get the impression that your pen (keyboard-blog-thing?) has been dipped in molten anger.

    You scare me sometimes, is the point.

  • iwillsavethispatient

    [re=469301]iwillsavethispatient[/re]: Oh wait, I see, it’s small, for your lap, not for beer pong after all. Not to say we couldn’t try… Tell you what, lets just drink some cheap beer quickly and call it quits.

    The customer quotes are great:
    As “Sarah from Buffalo” says, “Before, the kids were always making a mess when we traveled with food. Now, I let the little bleeders starve instead.”

  • confederette libtard

    Will my freedom fries fit up in thar?

  • iwillsavethispatient

    [re=469307]M.Yazz[/re]: The 1950s just called, they’re missing a crotchety old man.

  • magic titty

    Having your dick in a guy’s mouth while holding a Koran isn’t the Freedom Tray?

  • NopantsMcGee

    75 lbs of food for a Bitter isn’t even enough to get them out of bed, much less sitting in an upright position.

  • Cicada

    Wow, if I order now I get 4 “Freedom Huggers” free! I have no idea what a “Freedom Hugger” is. I think it might be Real American (TM) for a condom. You know, the special kind with the holes poked in them that Sarah Palin uses.

  • JMP

    “We are proud that the Freedom Tray is completely made and manufactured in the USA with US-made materials.”

    In other words, it’s made in the Northern Mariana Islands by virtual slave labor; either that, or like US cars it breaks down and needs to be returned for servicing every six months or so.

    [re=469298]WarAndG[/re]: [re=469306]StoneAge[/re]: Are the flag napkins only included if you call within the next five minutes?

  • Bearbloke


  • RoscoePColtraine

    Oh Philadelphia Freedom Tray shine on me, I love you
    Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind
    Shine a light shine a light

    Philadelphia Freedom Tray I love you, yes I do!

  • madtowngooner

    [re=469307]M.Yazz[/re]: What ever happened to just eating the dinner table? There, fixed.

  • Mad Brahms

    [re=469307]M.Yazz[/re]: Why go to the dinner table when you can bring the dinner table to you? This article reminds me of the Onion video piece on Americans buying Feed Bags. I hate it when satire becomes reality.

    [re=469306]StoneAge[/re]: If it doesn’t come in three easy payments, that’s going to be a tough sell for some folks. Though they could through in some sort of 80s compilation album to sweeten the deal, I guess.

  • OpusOne

    [re=469306]StoneAge[/re]: Yes, but by acting now, you get twice as much freedom.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    I call bullshit. Ewa and Mitch aren’t nearly fat enough to have come up with that glorified pig trough.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=469298]WarAndG[/re]: …and bumwipe to match, for those special occasions?

  • JMP

    [re=469307]M.Yazz[/re]: Come on now, it’s the American way for proud patriotic families to eat slack-jawed in front of the TV (showing football, NASCAR or Fox News, of course), not talking to each other as they shove the Big Macs into their mouths.

  • Sweet Baby Cheeses

    Needs more eagles.

  • Oldskool

    So if I wanted to try out me some freedom, I couldn’t lay on the tray cause it only holds 75 lbs. I’d like to order one super-sized, please, with extry milkshake holes.

  • PrairiePossum

    No Freedom Trays for Christmas – no baby Jesus depicted on the tray and the bastard didn’t wish me a Merry Christmas.

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=469325]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: no, no, one needs to wear the Snuggie (TM), the perfect garment for Amurricans who now resemble amorphous blobs of suet, while inhaling the requisite 5000 calories per day off the Freedom Tray!

  • Senile Agitation

    Turns out Kristofferson got it a little wrong, freedom is just another word for 120+ pounds left to lose. Thank goodness this Tray of Liberty can hold up to 75 pounds of fruits, nuts, grains and leafy green vegetables. Or a naked young boy.

  • Mad Brahms

    Just noticed the “recycle” logo. Does this apply to the materials, or the 75 pounds of food? This is no less than the second time this month a Wonkette thread has evoked memories of Mr. Creosote.

  • gurukalehuru

    A freedom tray for your freedom fries
    your freedom cake and freedom pies
    freedom beer and freedom chips
    and onion flavored freedom dip
    Carry freedom in your car
    put it in your lap
    it holds up to 75 pounds
    of your favorite freedom crap

  • The Church of Realism

    What do you accessorize a Freedom Tray with? My guess is bacon, but I could be wrong…

  • Mad Brahms

    [re=469346]gurukalehuru[/re]: Excellent intro / first verse. I demand a chorus.

  • Jerri

    At last! A trough that fits me and my family’s needs! To the top of the CHRISTmas wish list you go, USA America Freedom Trough!

  • Bearbloke



  • Zadig

    [re=469331]Mad Brahms[/re]: At this point literally the only difference left between The Onion and Fox News is that one of them is completely sincere.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Forget about the food aspect of this thing — what’s really great and freedom-loving and empowering is that you now have a place to set your laptop while you’re driving.

  • NopantsMcGee

    I’m sorry “Freedom Tray” people, but I have been taught by the Shamwow guy that the best things are made by the Germans.

  • Mad Brahms

    [re=469355]SayItWithWookies[/re]: One shouldn’t combine the too, though, lest you spill sausage gravy on your keyboard while in the midst of a particularly indignant WND post.

  • AggieDemocrat

    [re=469344]Mad Brahms[/re]: How can they have a recycle logo? WHY DO THEY HATE AMERICA? /mind blowing

    If you eat your dinner off any other surface (including and especially an Obama commemorative plate), you are a DEMON TERRIST!

  • slappypaddy

    “The Freedom Tray can hold up to 75 lbs. of weight in the center of the tray, with the legs deployed. This is one tough tray!”

    it’s going to need to hold more than that in the center, once its legs are deployed.

  • AggieDemocrat

    Oh, and I love their tagline: “Made in America. Used Everywhere.”

    Yes, I’m sure these are all the rage in the three-star Michelin restaurants of Paris.

  • Evil Dr. Puma

    I just can’t bring myself to care. I must not be free enough.

  • Gopherit

    Shit, 75 lbs isn’t even enough for a decent haunch of moose. This is not palin approved.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=469359]AggieDemocrat[/re]: Yes, I much prefer the ObaMarx/ObamEngels dinnerware collection…

  • loudmouthredhead

    So, if one accessory is, say, a fry-o-lator…and another is a porta-potty… and then we have a victory tater garden box off the front…THAT is the complete circle of life, and it all collapses down to less than 1 in thick!?

    Say, is Mrs. Announcer lady foreign or what? Mail-order maybe?

  • give us a bob

    [re=469329]proudgrampa[/re]: [re=469353]Bearbloke[/re]: But you can only have one fleshlight. The other attachment should be where the AR-15 clips on.

  • AggieDemocrat

    [re=469367]Bearbloke[/re]: Hey, those are kinda cool…

    This is some Homer Simpson shit right here.

  • bureaucrap

    Freedom Tray’s another word for “Nothin’ left to lose.”

  • NopantsMcGee

    No holder for Skoal?

    This is a Manchurian tray if I ever saw one.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=469369]give us a bob[/re]: That’s the “Real Merikin” D-luxe model, which can be yours – with a paid subscription to Newsmax.com…

  • snideinplainsight

    [re=469337]Sweet Baby Cheeses[/re]: Needs more crying, flag-tatooed eagles.

  • loudmouthredhead

    [re=469347]The Church of Realism[/re]: Nono, the TRAY makes the BACON, not the other way around. Much like wifebeater with pit stains makes the man.

  • loudmouthredhead

    [re=469378]NopantsMcGee[/re]: It’s the perfect size for a case of Skoal…I reckon.

  • Crazybroad

    Needs more 9/11.

    Furthermore, I will not buy it unless/until it is given the official US-Americuns Christmas-time seal of approval. I just can’t have a freedom tray made by Muslims or Jews.

  • Ducksworthy

    Look. You wonkers can make all the fun you want but these Real Merikan Entrepreneurs (wait is that french?) have figured out how to get the Bitters to send them their money and I’m proud of ’em. I want to do the same thing. What’s a good scam we can slap a flag on and sell to the yokels? Besides televangelism. Too much competition there.

    Something like this maybe http://tinyurl.com/yjmmn4y

  • RoscoePColtraine

    [re=469333]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: It was designed for use by a family of four. If the customer chooses to use it for his or her own singular use, which is possible, that’s his or her business.

  • mumblyjoe

    [re=469389]Ducksworthy[/re]: No, the French don’t have a word for entrepeneur.

    Merkins, and therefore merkin entrepenuers, on the other hand, are very, very french. Or so I’m told.

  • magic titty

    [re=469307]M.Yazz[/re]: What’s a ‘dinner table’?

    No doubt the Freedom Tray people run purity tests on their customers. The rest of you bastards get the Commie Traitor Librul Tray (made in China).

  • chascates

    Thank God for that helpful illustration. I was wondering whether my freedom fries and my… err… freedom fish and chips? would fit in my freedom white trash accessory.

  • Extemporanus

    “Freedom Tray” really doesn’t sound very American to me.

    Couldn’t they have called it the “Freedom Very”, or Freedom Three”, or something?

  • predilectrix

    [re=469310]SmutBoffin[/re]: Yeah, and it does my heart good. Thanks, Ken!

  • the problem child

    Does “*Used Everywhere” mean I can pick one up at a yard sale for a quarter? Because I might.

    I’m gonna install a fucking Freedom Tray on this here gas powered bad boy, and then I’ll never have to get off my fat fucking ass again!

  • Don’t Mess with Joe

    Garrett you beat me to it! I saw this thing on TV over Thanksgiving and was just floored. This makes the Snuggie look high class.

  • EdFlinstone

    Oh why must I wait for the Freedom Toilet? When Im done with my freedom fries and salad with freedom dressing, and breakfast with freedom toast, only then will my recently liberated turds get the dignified sendoff to the waste treatment plant they deserve.

  • happyrock

    The attachments are for the toilet that you sit on before attaching the tray. It’s delayed because they’re test marketing various configurations of American flag decorations to see which one is most popular. Wrap-yourself-in-the-flag-diapers tested poorly.

  • Nigerian Business Executive

    [re=469441]Extemporanus[/re]: That Gay Tray doesn’t look very gay to me. I suppose I should have asked for a Muscle Bear Tray because I guess I just can’t tell between a Really Fay Gay Tray and a woman’s back.

    What a very bizarre sentence I just wrote.

  • Mr Blifil

    I can’t wait for the class war when the people with food and shit all over their stupid oversize automotive vehicles turn on the Freedom Tray-having overlords. At that point, I’m doubting Freedom will reign.

    I am hopeful one of those special holder thingees will be for my jetpack.

  • tiger

    I prefer my Mao mug.

  • NiceButStupid

    I’m holding out for the Freedom Tray Deluxe (pronounced DEEElux). I am hoping that it will come with arm rests along the side of the tray that wrap around me. Right now there is no place for me to put my elbows.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=469482]Nigerian Business Executive[/re]: Hey, I think the tray’s a twink, or as they might say, a “tway”. OK?

    Oh, and here’s a “Bear Tres” for you, mi amigo.

  • Yes You Can Own A Piece of History

    Wait a minute, what the fuck is that commie green recycling arrow doing on the web site? The freedom tray isn’t made of recycled materials, is it?

  • Humpback

    What if I have more than 75 pounds of Freedom? Where will I put it? Must I wait for the attachments?

  • Nigerian Business Executive

    [re=469519]Extemporanus[/re]: Ugh. I just lost my appetite. You should sell your Bear Tres as a diet aid.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=469519]Extemporanus[/re]: Bear Fail! – No Bear would go to an outdoor ‘shirtless-is-fine’ event with a woman, especially one with whom he could swap clothes… one saves the Divine-sized faghags like that one for a John Waters film-fest…

    That’s serious font abuse on the Freedom Tray logo. I would expect those letters to form the logo of a heavy metal band like, say, “TARANCHULA”, “LIMOZEEN”, or “BIGG NIFE”.

    So this is what the New American Century is going to bring us – fast food served and eaten faster on yr. Red State-manufactured Freedom Trays. Who needs the auto and steel industries when fuckwits in the South are happy to make giant plastic trays to serve junk food on?

    Somewhere, Andrew Carnegie is crying.
