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"
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!
