    Hi gang:

    I was laughing earlier today reading an article about some of the worst Christmas gifts people have received. This stuff is true, and I swear, you can't make this stuff up.

    Not Sold In Stores!

    "One of my relatives is known for giving horrible gifts, and the year I was 16 I got a plain fleece blanket—the type that rolls up for easy transport. Clearly I wasn't thrilled, so I tried to return it. Well, that failed when customer service told me the blanket hadn't been sold in stores... for three years!" – Alyssa Jung, Assistant Research Editor

    "Two Buck Chuck" at Trader Joe's ;)

    But Trader Joe's is 20 minutes away and I think it might even be the only one in Texas, only one I've ever seen here.

    So it's $14 for a 5 liter box of Franzia

    Went to my mom's once for family Christmas. My one and only present- a bar of soap.

    That's right up there with the half of a rabbit my cat gave me.

    A bar of soap? Oh, that's awful chillymellow. I'm sorry, I don't mean to laugh.

    By the way, the cat thought what he was giving you was a gift because humans are lousy hunters. I actually read that. Too funny.

    My great aunt who was about 90 yrs old gave me a pair or red panties. Me and three friends could fit in these panties! HUGE! Lol! Her eyesight was very poor, or I was hoping that's why she purchased such a HUGE pair for me. I will never forget it. So hilarious.

    What a nuisance! )))) :surprise:

    Last year my friends also presented me one big "flower". It was cactus! Yes. And my poor cat tried to bite him and hurts his ears. In general it's sad and funny at the same time... :beard::boohoo:

    Lovely gift! Because I live in southern Arizona, I can definitely vouch for how beautiful some cactus are ... and how dangerous they all can be. ;)
