Washington Post -- Style Invitational Challenge for the week was
to come up with a terribly inappropriate gift idea.

4th runner up:  Li'l Naturalist Hornet Farm

3rd runner up:  A Pee Wee Herman pull toy

2nd runner up:  The Duncan Yo  -- Goes down, never comes back.  Teaches
                children about warranties

1st runner up:  5,200 pick up -- a jumbo deck of cards that lets kids
		play a larger versionof their favorite game

Winner:         The "Learn about puberty chia pet"

Honorable mentions:

Supersoaker 9000:  For use on those hard to reach targets; NFL referees,
        low flying planes, and many more.  At close range it can strip
	paint clean rusty grills, and dig utility trenches.

The laff-o-minit jajic spellin' tootor

Doggie dentist -- Kids learn about dentistry on the family pooch.

Cuisin-Art -- Turns mommy's food processor into a spinning paint tool.

Water retention Wanda -- Teaches kids the principles of the calendar.

Advanced play medical kit -- includes colonoscope and speculum.

Chocolate covered lead soldiers

Bungeroo -- kid sized bungee kit for second story bedrooms

Islamic strip poker -- lose a hand, lose a hand.

 ... and these were the good ones!
