    Ok - think back now... What was the WORST Christmas gift that you received or that the Mall was pushing at the time? Extra Points for Pictures!

    Here are a few of mine...

    Reversible Tube Socks
    Pet Rock
    Dime Store toy cars... with fake wheels that were made into the metal... and did not turn...

    Here are some recent doozies...

    Pro Thumb Wrestling Ring
    Dinosaur Poo
    BeBe Breastfeeding Doll

    I think the worst Christmas gift I ever saw being pushed in stores was Teddy Ruxpin. Remember that? He was creepy looking, and never shut up. You couldn't go anywhere without hearing one.

    Smoked salmon didn't fit in the mailbox...No one home to receive the well intended gift...Had to pick up at the post office where it had been sitting in a roasty toasty room for three days...Not good...Very bad.

    got a spatula big enough to flip a man hole cover. Still not sure what it was to be used for. Bigger than any pan I had.

    Paul Bunyan's flapjacks. Don't let Babe the Blue Ox down them straight out of the pan, as it will give him a powerful tummy ache.

    A clown that had been crocheted for me by my Grandma's friend...

    it was a creepy & scary clown :/

    (Very thoughtful of her, but it truly terrified me)

    I would hide it at night so I didn't wake up & have to loook at it!

    Off Ramp...My mother made a construction paper jack-o-lantern and pinned it to my bedroom bulletin board when I was about three years old. I slept with my back to that guy!...On Ramp...Back to the bad Christmas Gift Highway.

    When I was a teenager, I think around 16, I received a long sleeve purple roomper from a relative. It was a very nice thought and gesture but the roomper was not me. This was back in the late 80s and I was (and still am) into rock and roll and the metal bands.

    Clowns scare me as well.
    I think of John Wayne Gacy whenever I see one.
    Remember that show, "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" (Nickelodeon)
    That episode about Zebo the Clown...creeepy!

    Hey....toilet seats are greatly under-appreciated. You get just the right fit and....well.....

    nevermind.

    Lol ... A roomper is a one piece outfit, usually made out of cotton that either buttons or zippers up the front. This one was long sleeve. ... Think of sweat pants and sweat shirt sewn together with an opening in the front that either zips or buttons close.
