HOLY CRAP, IT'S BASICALLY THE MIDDLE OF NOVEMBER.
And you know how after Thanksgiving, it seems like Christmas jumps up almost immediately on your face and gives you a surprise dry humping? Especially because once you have all that turkey, you feel all sleepy and you have to hibernate for the rest of the Thanksgiving weekend? It's like a tinsel-laden, anima-tronic, wrapping paper ambush to the groin.
So, because I'm such a nice guy, I want to do you a favor. I have been working tirelessly to gather up a list of the most amazing gifts to get for any dude in your life (including/especially me).
And if you've been reading this blog long enough, you will have already guessed my first gift recommendation.
It's the absolutely frightening-looking, large enough to put in the back of a pickup and fight the Libyan Loyalists, Nerf Vulcan Cannon.
|Making a war face: you're doing it wrong.|
The second thing you're probably expecting me to promote? Nunchucks.
|no caption needed.|
Or any sweet ninja weapon for that matter. A Sai, a Bo, Katana blades...well, that's all I know about ninja weapons. Thanks TMNT. Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damage the recipient of this gift causes inside your house, or to his own body. This is mainly the reason I have not purchased nunchucks for myself yet: I plan on having more children. ALTERNATIVE VASECTOMY METHOD FTW.
Third suggestion? A sledgehammer.
|Trust me, that's a happy-dude face, thanks to his sledgehammer|
Next up? Earth: the series.
|95% of the proceeds go to the marketing people for the amazing and original title|
And the final suggestion that I have for people looking to buy their husbands, boyfriends, sons, and really, really cool girl family members something really super awesome is this: the Orion SkyQuest XX14i Dobsonian Telescope.
|99 problems and a Zenithal Hole is one.|
Lightweight, portable, and it even comes with a stool, a blanket and a few hand to hand weapons so that when you're sitting out in the middle of a field at midnight totally alone (don't kid yourself - if you're buying this, you're totally alone), you'll have some way to defend yourself against the freezing cold and bears. I remember those great father/son moments my dad and I had when we would go out in the back with our telescope, try and track down the red supergiant Betelgeuse with a telescope that didn't have equatorial tracking, and be utterly silent for hours on end (talking disturbs the majesty of the universe, and walking around disturbs the alignment of the telescope's mirrors) while we both froze nearly to death. Family friendly, AND teaches you about both the stars and natural selection!
So there you have it folks, five of the greatest gifts you can get me...I mean, your significant other or child to make this Christmas (or New Years for you Russians) the best they've had yet.
