Flatiron District housewares store Fishs Eddy has never been afraid to get cheeky with its signage. This is, after all, the shop that used to sell utensils with the slogan "A forkin' great deal!" But we're not sure how to feel about their latest ads, which are all about Occupy Wall Street. Granted, Fishs Eddy isn't exactly Citibank. It's a small local business, it's incredibly affordable, and it helps support New York's Food Bank. But still: Co-opting a political movement to sell Christmas presents seems a little tasteless. What do you think?
