“I got a sweater for Christmas, but I really wanted a screamer or a moaner”

"I got a sweater for Christmas, but I really wanted a screamer or a moaner” is a jocular one-line saying that has been printed on many GIFs. The line was posted to the newsgroup microsoft.public.games.zone.asherons_call on February 23, 2000.

“Squirter” is often added. “I got a sweater for christmas. I was hoping for a screamer or a moaner or even a squirter” was posted on Twitter on October 13, 2011.
