Worst X-mas Gifts.................

A local talk show was doing a segment on worst x-mas gifts. Here's some that I enjoyed:

Mom buys son's new girlfriend a moo-moo..........

Grandad buys grandson a Spongebob lunchbox for school.......he's 17!

Wife gives husband divorce papers.............

My favorite: grandfather gives grandson USED underwear from Salvation Army....................

Re: Worst X-mas Gifts.................

When I was a kid my crazy aunt gave me a used book (Breakfast of Champions) with snot on some of the pages. The same year she gave my brother a used tire with almost no tread on it that she thought might fit his car. He didn't have a car and was too young to drive.

Re: Worst X-mas Gifts.................

A boyfriend gave me "The Clapper". (Remember their ad: "Clap On, Clap Off"?)

He had good intentions but it certainly was a weird gift. He was concerned about my security and explained that the thing could be plugged in to a lamp and then, when there's some kind of noise, the light would turn on and scare away potential intruders when I am not home.

I went along and had fun for about a week clapping the light on and off but it's been unused and gathering dust for years.
