Unusual Holiday Gifts

 
 
Reply Sat 16 Nov, 2002 10:33 pm
Being that I am on virtually everyone's mailing list, I get oodles and oodles of catalogs this time of year. Thumbing through them, I've discovered that there are some pretty strange gifts available. For example, this is a resin cow head to use in your garden so you can 'fool your neighbors' (but only in summer -- it can't be frozen). It costs $100 and there is also a resin moose available for only $149.

Any other ideas for the person who has everything?

Hi Bandylu
I love the cow head, but not for $100. I kind of like some of that off the wall stuff. It makes for interesting conversation :-)

What exactly would you be fooling your neighbors into thinking? That you are part of a Satanic cult that tends to decapitate Holsteins? Shocked

sozobe, I have NO idea (they do suggest in the catalog that you'll convince your neighbors you keep cows -- which in my neck of the woods means you'll get turned in).

gezzy -- it is a bit pricey for a cow head, but then I'm not sure what the going rate would be for them.

quinn -- I wonder if your unusual gift is meant to fool the authorities at those places where alcoholic beverages are taboo (might be a bit hard sneaking it into a football game, though).

Perhaps that your new pets will be informing you of their strange goings on?

Um, wonder what they did with the real top (put it on an artificial bottom?). I'd like two, please.

You know jerry, I actually had a star named after my mother one Christmas. She was an astronomy nut and she absolutely loved it -- got a certificate and a 'map' (or chart, not sure what you call them) showing her where her star was. If she were still around, I might be tempted.

I'm frighteningly tempted by that talking toilet paper roll. Though I don't know who I'd get it for. Maybe the office Kris Kringle exchange?

That's the kind of thing you have to get as a gift; if you bought it for yourself people would think you were really, really strange.
