my twin brother and i were given, sneak king, and one of the other $4.00 xbox games from burger king from my older brother. Obviously this was a joke that at the time was hilarious.

OMG do you remember the box Mich sent me? It looked like there was something bad was in there. Half inch of duct tape all around it.

Heh my dad did that to me the year he got me my discman (my first CD player...I used it until the spindle fell off).

He used a microwave box as the outer, and kept going and going until I hit a small box for a discman carrier (remember those square pouches that held the discman in a zippered pocket, and a CD wallet in the other?...yep one of those)....inside was the carrier, the discman (batteries loaded), and an Aerosmith CD to get me started.

I was so tired after all that.....I got back at him this year by doing that to the iPod Nano I gave him....it was engraved on the back with "Now it's your turn pops!" (had a local jeweler do the engraving since Apple quit doing that) He got a good laugh out of that. By the way, I loaded the rip of that same Aerosmith album onto the iPod for him :)

Once I received a set of chopsticks from an aunt, I was 13.
Also at a friends Christmas party each year we play a gag gift game and I brought an electric corn cob toilet paper

I once gave my brother-in-law a gift certificate.

It was in one of those nested gift boxes - 12 boxes getting smaller and smaller, all inside one another. He got to the smallest one, and the message told him he missed it and to go back to the 5th box... so he had to put them all back together to figure out which one that was. He finally got that one, and looked at it... wtf?

The certificate was inside the lid hidden behind black paper that looked exactly like all the other lids.

Also gave him a bottle of wine, that was locked inside one of those mind puzzle things.

I sent my sister a pair of "moose nugget" earrings for christmas, you know those dried moose droppings shellacked and set with a hoop on them. They were/are about one inch in diameter and brown. :)

The next year she went out to her rabbit hutch and sent me a tin of rabbit droppings, only she picked up the ripe ones, nice and wet. When I got them (mailed to Adak) during the slow mail trip they grew hair and started to stink. When I opened them up all the guys in the fire dept. were wondering what the stink was and I showed them the

"hairy rabbit balls of poop. "

They thought my family was strange. Who would have thunk it. :)

I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!! No joke, I bought it last year for myself. Although, I haven't actually watched it yet... but my sister and I watched that movie over and over as kids.

The book is a lot better.
