Pumpkin's Top Ten Christmas Picks From Think Geek

It's that time of year again when people are flocking to the malls in groves with Christmas lists clutched in their hands. They walk along with a look of stupor on their faces; in their own little worlds. Don't you wish you could just skip the crowds and let someone else handle things? Well look no more because I, Pumpkin, am here to help you this holiday season :o)

If you're like most people, you've got that one person on your list that just has it all and every year it's the same thing...you're climbing the walls trying to find them the perfect gift. Unique is usually the way to go and believe me, I've picked some unique items for you to check out. LOL! So let the countdown begin...

10 - I figure that the majority of people will never venture into space in their lifetime so why not bring the outer space experience to them with Astronaut Ice Cream! It comes in three flavours; Neapolitan, Mint Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Chocolate Chip. Try it and pretend you're an astronaut, even if it's only for 15 minutes. I can't guarantee how good it is but I 'can' guarantee that it won't melt ;o)

9 - You know, I don't think people give fish enough credit when it comes to having them as pets. They really are intelligent, just under educated, so why not expand your fish's education with the Fish Training School Kit :o) Who knows, maybe this might turn into a booming business some day. LOL!

8 - Are you one of those people who love to annoy others? If yes, then this is the perfect gift for you! The Electronic Drum Kit Shirt can be taken anywhere; the doctor's office, on the bus, waiting in annoying line-ups. And you don't have to be musically inclined! Just tap away to the beat of your own drum ;o)

7 - Okay, I had to add this next one because I have issues with room temperature drinks. I like my drinks COLD! The colder, the better :o) With the USB LED Beverage Cooler, all you have to do is plug it into your computer and voila...a cold drink right within reach. Also note that it's the perfect size for those little sample liquor bottles ;o)

6 - If you're like me and love useless gadgets, you're going to love the R-C Desktop Forklift! How fun would it be to play with this during those slow excruciating hours at work :o) Want to rearrange your desk? Let this little guy do it for you!

5 - Having a bad day? Stressed about something? Dealing with useless twits all day long? Then the Dead Fred Pen Holder would be just perfect for you. Jab Fred multiple times and feel all those tense muscles starting to relax, while knowing that you've let go of that anger but no one was seriously hurt ;o)

4 - How many times have you gone into the fridge to extract a container of food, only to find some mysterious goo that once might have been spaghetti sauce? With the Atomic Food Containers, you won't have this problem anymore! These containers can date themselves. The downside? You're no longer able to watch fuzzy stuff grow. LOL!

3 - Do you have trouble saving your change? I know I do! That's why I highly recommend the Bomb Bank. Stop feeding it the coins and this bomb will explode your savings all over the place. Now who wants to clean up a mess like that? ;o)

2 - I'm sure anyone would find this next gift useful. The Animated Driving LED Emoticon lets other drivers know how you feel. The only problem I can see is that mine would constantly be on the pissed off mode. Yea, I seriously need to get one of these....

And you 'know' that I've saved the best for last ;o)

1 - I apologize now because this may seem a little crude to some but I think it's HILARIOUS! The number one pick wins by a landslide and is awarded to...the Humping USB Dog!!!! Plug this little rascal into your computer and just watch him go. There is no need to say more ;o)

I love thinkgeek too - I was eyeing the mugs with the caffeine molecule on them.

Little Cat said...

LOL Great! :o)

Lori-Ann said...

You've been surfing! LOL.

I like number 7... does it come with a "Shamwow" for when you knock the drink onto the keyboard?? ROFL. ;o)

Daffycat said...

ROFLOL I actually want one of those beverage coolers!

Kathryn said...

So much better with the videos! Especially the Desktop Forklift and the Bomb Bank. I already have a USB Homer Simpson (a gift), so I don't have an empty USB port for the USB refrigerator. I guess I will just have to walk over to the freezer and fill my glass with ice first.

Irene said...

Nancy said...

Ruth said...

LOL I think I need a bigger version of that desk fork lift. Much bigger! lol

Marita said...

Oh very cool. And I have a friend that humping USB dog would be perfect for.

You found a real interesting selection, what fun. I couldn't belive the last one, you really got to wonder about a mind that comes up with something like that for your computer, LOL. I've actually had the Astronaut Ice Cream, the science muesum by us sells it. Not to bad, but I still prefer my Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia :)
Hope the beading on TOT is going better, looking forward to seeing an update.
