I love goofy gifts. Love to receive them and give them. Sometimes, however, I find things for sale that I cannot believe anyone would buy. In fact, I have a collection of them. I buy them, as long as they’re cheap. Sometimes I’m tempted to get a more expensive one, but … well … how much more stuff do I need in my “weird stuff” box? I just opened one of the zillion catalogues I receive during the holiday season, and there is a remote-controlled tarantula for $29.95. I mean – seriously? People buy remote-controlled insects?

Not sure why I’m surprised. I own a Sigmund Freud action figure and a Jesus Christ action figure, both with warnings on the package “Not suitable for children under 3” – something I find hilarious, and I hope you do too.
