    My mother enjoys buying he ugliest cloths she can find and giving a receipt with it. The gift isn't complete if she can't accompany you to watch the shame on your face as you try to return lime green capris with pink pin stripes.

    That's really vicious. You should have cut their legs off and worn them as shorts, especially to family-meetings where you could proudly explain, that your mother gave them to you.

    Last year my boss gave me a crystal globe with stand as a Christmas-gift. I hate dust-collectors and that thing was pretty heavy, too. But it made for a great entry into a 'White Elephant' gift-exchange with friends.

    As a kid I got my dad a watch every Christmas until one year he had an allergic reaction to a wristwatch I got him, and his arm started peeling!

    So I'm a little leery of those now.

    My mother made me a hand felted stingray. But the kicker is that she made it out of my dead dog's fur that she had saved and died blue. I'm not sure what to do with it.

    I got this weird ass talking thing! I don't even know what you call it,but It was a game thing for a 5 year old and I was 15 at the time. My dad said that his sister forgot how Old I was (obviously).

    "OH NO! OH NO! QUICK SAND!!"

    "YOU HAVE FOUND THE LOST TREASURE WOO!!"

    I felt so dumb playing it...

    I have a friend from childhood.. we've been friends since 2nd grade. We do our Christmas dinner every year (we did it tonight). Always great and fantastic to spend 2 or 3 hours laughing and having a great time.... but
    she hasn't a clue about what to give me as a present. She gave me "Stetson" cologne several times (which is very inexpensive). Always thank her for the gift, but finally made a few suggestions... its helped.

    How about the same wrong women's shirt three times over? My mother over the course of 2 Christmases and one birthday in between gave me the same women's black corduroy overshirt from princess cruises in three different sizes. She has an odd habit of giving me women's clothing, and I am not known for going around wearing women's clothing. Further, I stopped wearing all black in the early 90s. I point all this out to her, and she just shrugs it off and finds it funny. I have friends who beg me not to open presents from my mom until they can be there with me to howl in laughter at whatever she's chosen next. It's always fun to open them.

    When he was a kid my roomie's grandmother would send a joint gift to him and his sister (mistake #1). It was always the "3 in 1 Game Set," ages 3 - 6. They jointly received this same "3 in 1 Game Set" for 10 years, and each Christmas they would go back and forth as to who would have to open it. And then like good little kids they'd be forced to write a thank you letter every year.

    I used to give my best friend, a lesbian, extremely horrible Christmas gifts that she opened up in front of her family when she would invite me over to spend Christmas eve with them. (I would give her a nice gift on Christmas day). I should preface the story by letting you know her family was very well off, and rather high society.

    One year it was coprolite, which is fossilized animal crap. It was from The Nature Store, and it had an authentication certificate and explained how old the fossil is and that it was animal dung. She was holding it while she read it.....then she screamed and pitched it to her mom. Then she told her mom what it was and they both screamed and her mom threw it to the floor. Then one of their Papillon dogs took it and they couldnt get it away from the dog.

    The next year I got her a pig that pooped brown jelly beans, called Porky Pooper.

    The year after that I gave her "Animal Crappers" which looks like a box of the old fashioned animal crackers, but is actually from animal dung from the San Diego Zoo. The crap was shaped like the crackers, and you put it into your house plants as fertilizer.

    These are just a few of the wonderful and wondrous Christmas presents I used to give my friend. I don't understand why we don't keep in touch any more.
