As you may recall, the reigning “Best Christmas Present Ever” on my side of the family is the fart machine my brother received a couple of years ago. So clearly, the gift giving bar has been set very high here.
However this year I believe the title will be passed on, as evidenced by the following presents given and received this morning.
First, we have “Rudy, the Tiki-headed tissue box cover”.
Next up was Peter Petri, the egg separator.
He comes complete with directions on how to make your eggs more or less disgusting, depending on the look you’re going for (the egg whites come out his nose).
But the piece de resistance absolutely has to be this gift given to my brother. You will probably not be surprised to know that it came from the same person who was responsible for the fart machine.
(In case the picture is covered up by the sidebar the box says, “Mr Moose: A flick of the tail brings a treat”.)
Of course Christmas had to come to a screeching halt so that we could immediately test out the moose. My dad volunteered to sample the first candy, and because the humor gods were smiling kindly on us today, the first piece that came out? Was. Completely. Black.
My husband’s grandmother died about 10 days ago (this story does get better). His Mom asked him if there was anything he would like to have from her/her house. He couldn’t think of anything. (I wish I had been asked–I’d like to have copies of the stories she wrote!) Knowing that I like moose, his Mom said she’d gone ahead and picked out something for us to have–a wooden moose.
AND IT’S THE SAME ONE YOUR BROTHER GOT!
Yup. We get to remember our grandmother, the wonderful lady after whom our daughter is named, with a moose that dispenses candy from unmentionable places.
My husband said he’d keep it hidden in his office. Yeah right! I’m sure he’ll teach little MJ how to use it immediately!
Okay, I got nothing that good! But I’m going to have to wander around and look for the moose thing!
I gotta find the tiki head tissue cover. That’s awesome! And I may have to send my Dad the moose for his birthday. He loves to send people goofy crap for their birthdays, especially my aunts. hehe
No way — that moose is AWESOME!!!
Oh man. My husband was telling me that someone in his office brought a fart machine to the gift exchange- I thought he was joking.
AnnMarie-that story just about made my Christmas! 😀
I wish I could share the source of these awesome gifts with you all. I asked my uncle, but he wouldn’t tell.
I thought he was joking.
Yeah, you WISH they were joking, but it is all too real.
