You have to be careful with the sentimental gifts. They make some people fill up with warm and fuzzy feelings, but they also make some people vomit all over their immediate surroundings. A funny gag gift can be a great way to maintain the appropriate emotional distance, a great way to say I love you too much to make you nauseous, or a great way to hit pretty much any point in between.
Few activities draw as much attention, ridicule, and humor as farting. But until recently, nobody thought to create a taxonomy based on this fundamental behavior. Here is a science-backed tour of the world of bestial flatulence, providing an enlightening context to an activity that we often take for granted, but that never seems to lose its novelty. The project was spearheaded by a trained, certified zoologist, so you can rest assured that this information will never let you down when it comes time to apply it in the wild. This is the definitive guide we’ve all been praying for.

A mysterious wood and metal box featuring a single switch on top. When the switch is flipped, gears whirl into motion. The top opens up, and a tiny disembodied finger emerges to flip the switch back to its original position. The finger retreats back inside; the box closes. And that is it.
Perhaps in an elaborate joke on us all, Prank-O has managed to create a profitable business selling empty boxes. The boxes aren’t meant to remain empty, however. Prank-O encourages people to “disguise your gift in a stupid box.” So, for example, you have actually bought a very nice gift for a friend, but put it in a box that claims to contain an Earwax Candle Kit, or Bacon Scented Dryer Sheets. Imagine the look on that poor friend’s face when they think you have given them something really ridiculous, stupid and disgusting. And the relief when they realize it’s just a joke.
We don’t know if it is a great idea to feed squirrels in your yard, to be perfectly honest, but we know for sure that it is a great idea to laugh at them. And that’s what you’ll do every single time one of our little gray buddies slips its little head into this oversized horse mask to have a snack.
For the musician who hates music, or for the kid whose parents you hate, there is the Otamatone, a “musical” instrument that makes the bagpipes seem reasonable.

For thousands of years, humans have relied on the sublime art of taxidermy to remember their deceased animal companions, and to turn the roving beasts of the wild that they have felled with their own hands into game trophies. Taxidermy is like a three-dimensional photograph, not only capturing a moment in time, but telling a story with a single image. When done skillfully, it produces noble, enthralling, and emotionally moving symbols that mark our experiences and interactions with the rest of the animal kingdom. But like anything else, there are some real freaking hacks out there. This is their book.
Learn why playing Russian roulette is a bad idea the safe way with this hilarious gag toy set. Just fill a balloon with water (or blood, whatever), secure it inside the ring, put it next to your head, and pull the trigger. A little pin may or may not pop the balloon. And nobody gets hurt.

Somebody had to step up to the plate on this one, because 7-11 has been dropping the ball for decades. On a hot day, we’ve always been forced to choose between beer and a slushy, when what we wanted was both. At the same time.

No longer do we have to suffer the indignity of choosing between cherry, lemonade, and watermelon. Freedom at last.

One of the real barriers for many people to enjoying champagne to the fullest is the sense of pretension that surrounds this exalted beverage.
