I worry about humanity sometimes

Apparently Amazon—ever helpful!—has seen fit to make sure you have access to only the finest white elephant gift ideas for your holiday season needs.

I… uhhhh… well. Good luck with that.


  1. man I wish that’d come out a few weeks ago!

  2. I think this is fantastic! I can’t decide which is my favorite — emergency underpants or squirrel underpants!

  3. that pass the pigs game is supposed to be pretty fun, actually.

  4. Ok, I’m sorry but I think this is the coolest thing, ever. I have two teens who go to white elephant parties during Christmas and our family LOVES prank gifts. I will be queen of Christimas with these!

    Also, I have the sense of humor of a nine year old boy and I’m no longer ashamed to admit it.

  5. Ooh – had I seen this earlier I *totally* would have gotten the WTF stamp for my husband at work. Hmmm.. bday gift?

  6. Pass The Pigs is a great game.

    This year’s gag gift will be the same as last year’s: audio cassette language lessons for learning Klingon.

  7. Squirrel Underpants and Jingle Jugs. What is the world coming to?

  8. Is it wrong that I already own a large percentage of this stuff? To be fair (to myself) we used to live near Archie McPhee in Seattle which sells all this awesomeness. My kids always wanted to go there instead of the zoo.

  9. There are people in this world who will spend $12.78 + shipping on a yodeling pickle?

  10. I bought screaming/flying animal slingshots as stocking stuffers for my four teenaged boys last year. Biggest. Hit. Ever.

  11. This page makes me super-happy.

  12. I have that bullshit button. It’s a giant hit at work.

  13. I’m kind of surprised you aren’t all over that bacon-scented air freshener! 😛 🙂

  14. Pass the Pigs is an awesome game, actually. And the screaming monkey was a stocking stuffer favorite a couple years back – my 7yo loves it. But a bacon scented auto air freshener. Weird…

  15. Pass the pigs is a very fun game. I was surprised to see it on this list. Totally showing this to my husband. He was just telling me last night how he still needs to buy a gift for his family’s gift exchange game.

  16. I should direct my friend to these. My friend bought this for her own white elephant gift exchange (from Wal-Mart, so I apologize for linking, but I highly doubt anyone will want to buy it):


    I about fell over when she told me about it before she left for the party, and I almost did a spit-take when I actually saw the thing. Wow. I want to see the entire bathroom of the person who has that seat (and at that price, it’s a desire to own that particular seat and not a seat of last resort sort of purchase).

  17. We do a “Goofy Grab Bag” with my husbands family and since one of the gifts we’re bringing is a Radio Toilet Paper Roll, so obviously the Emergency Underpants were a must!! LOL

  18. I already have the flying slingshot monkey. And a flying slingshot Santa too! LOL!

  19. The bacon air freshener is only $2! 🙂 Thought you’d like that! I’ll be getting that for my bacon obsessed friend.
