Gift buying is never easy, but when there’s a world-class weirdo on your list, it can be worse than trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube with your feet while sucking on a blotter of acid. That’s why we’ve put in the hard work to find all the gifts that will get a thumbs up from that friend, family member, or neighbor who’s a little too…should we say unorthodox? It doesn’t matter if they already have the entire Weird Al box set – on vinyl and cassette – and have already tried every flavor of kimchi soda. We’ve got you covered.

We don’t know why anyone would need this. It’s just a box with a switch. And If you flip the switch it opens up and a little finger pokes out to flip the switch back. Because reasons.
