CINCINNATI -- Do your friends say you have bad taste? Do you also have $50 to burn?

Well, a Cleveland company has an ugly sweater for you.

Fresh Brewed Tees is serving up a whole Christmas collection inspired by pop culture, politics and memes. But there's one reason we're giving them what amounts to free advertising: a dead gorilla.

"Harambe loved (whatever)" has been a running gag on social media ever since a Cincinnati Zoo staffer felled the silverback in May (that is, if you call harassing the zoo about a dead member of a critically endangered species a "gag").

So, naturally, the sweater features a likeness of Harambe in a Santa hat, with a New Year's party horn in his mouth and "Harambe Loved Christmas" written above.

It's a 50/50 cotton/poly blend, which Harambe probably loved, too, because why not.

Another hometown hero gets a shoutout in this year's collection, too: Middletown native and Cubs left fielder/catcher Kyle Schwarber.

Check out the entire collection at FreshBrewedTees.com.
