Wacky Gift Ideas

The Christmas season has this amazing ability to draw out the zany, doesn't it?

Most of the things here will make you scratch your head and ask "Why, why, why?".

I ain't got any answers. Sorry.

 

 

Cool... but, uh... maybe not

Don't you think this is likely to give you nightmares? Would you really want this thing sitting on your desk all day reminding you of that scene in Aliens where Ripley barely evades that second little set of chompers? Not for me, I'm afraid. As much as I like the Alien franchise, this meets the required criteria for a ridiculous gift.

Less scary - equally ridiculous

I thought the point of a USB hub was that it saves space while allowing you to plug more stuff in. Again, do you really want this TARDIS sitting on your desk all day every day, blinking away like that and taking up a bucket load of room?

The Spice Mines of Kessel come to your kitchen

Cute, tenacious little R2-D2 has got a new job dispensing ground pepper onto your food. Wacky stuff. Not sure there's too much to say. Just don't use too much force, I guess.

This one, I gotta admit...

...I kinda like. My cup, for example, reads "And yet... despite the look on my face, you're still talking."

So this cup does actually make me laugh with its message: "Every day I'm forced to add to the list of people who can just kiss my ass."

Cold drinks never tasted so good

If you like your drinks cold, but you don't like them getting watered down, then here is the perfect solution (although I can't believe how ridiculous it is!): Whiskey Stones. Looks like a joke; absolutely isn't.

I don't get this...

I just don't. This is pretty darn wacky, if you ask me. Who would want little plush piece of sushi to cuddle up to? *shrug*

The nerdiest implement you've ever seen?

Wow. This one really sends me into a spin. I love the concept and marvel at the mind who came up with it. But I also worry that this is about the geekiest thing I have ever seen.

P.S. I bet Spock was lactose intolerant.

Mad for Space Invaders and cooking?

Or know someone who is? You never thought you'd see the day, did you? When you could chop veggies and think about that relentless little left-to-righ/right-to-left *blip*blip*blip*blop*. Ahhh... bliss!

Can't get enough?

Want to go to sleep thinking about those never-ending squid-like little alien invaders? Well, here's your chance...

Alternatively, you can Mario it up

There are also wall graphics for Nintendo lovers. Maybe Space Invaders on the bedroom wall and Nintendo in the games room? Then try and convince anyone at all that you're an adult!

Zombies are always good fun

The interest in zombies just never dies, does it? (Ha ha! Pretty funny, eh?) Well, if you're tired of being pushed around by the zombies at work, for example, take out your frustration on this sucker. Pull him apart. Remove his brain. Give him a taste of his own medicine!

Survive the Zombie Holocaust!

This simple little desk calendar could help you avoid becoming another cerebellum-munching member of the walking dead with its "grisly facts about the history, habits, and hungers of the living dead. Daily you will learn how to combat a zombie invasion". Not to be taken lightly, methinks...

Send your minions forth to attack!

Get your very own remote-control zombie (where the R/C unit is a brain, no less!) and send in your zombie to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting denizens of your office, dorm, share-house, or wherever! Utterly pointless in every way, this one gets a big lash of ridiculosity.

From zombies to vampires...

This is hilarious — but I don't if it would totally freak me out to see a baby sucking on this. Hmmm.... certainly ridiculous, alright, but as is often the case, I like it!

Sports Fan, uh, garden gnomes? WTF?

Check 'em out: Football, hockey, and baseball fans can have their very own garden gnome patrolling the yard to make sure supporters of rival teams know whose freakin' turf this is! Watch out, Bub.

Turn your car into a reindeer!

No one will ever be able to tell the difference once you've added this superb holiday decal kit to your sweet set of wheels. They'll be thinking you're like Santa Clause'n'shit, rollin' around the neighbourhood dispensing good cheer in a hatchback.

Turn yourself into a reindeer!

If you just can't get enough reindeer goodness, why not turn yourself into one for the holiday season, too? Won't the family be surprised and delighted to see your reindeer (aka car) touch down out the front and then lo and behold a sleek, reindeer steps right out and onto the street!
