I am no baby, I mean, I have seen a lot of things in my life, but this....this gift.....takes the cake, or maybe not the cake, but makes you want to throw up the cake!  

Now, I understand that everyone has a different view of what's funny, and what's appropriate, but....a pair of glasses with a giant nose, where the nose actually can I put this politely?....something coming out of it!......for my birthday?

I know you're short of funds, but come on?  


You gotta be kidding!

It's the thought that counts?

       (Laughs, turns to leave, stops, looks back)

If it's the thought that counts......what the hell were you thinking?

        (Throws the gift away - exits to a birthday without gag gifts!)
