Overview

Looking for that perfect gift for that special someone? Well, good luck - you won't find it here. But if your gift giving runs toward a can of pork brains, hideous Republican pants, a high-tech loudspeaker hat, or a nose spreader, then Dave Barry's Gift Guide to End All Gift Guides is just the book for you. For four years, Dave Barry and his crack gift-finding team at the Miami Herald have scoured the planet looking for gifts it is better to give than to receive. The best of those items are now available in this catalogue to end all catalogues. Every item must meet Dave's rigid standards: First, each gift had to be something you can actually buy, and second, each one "had to achieve a level of tastefulness such that the average person could not look at it and eat at the same time." Just imagine the oohs and ahs and other sentiments you'll hear expressed when friends and loved ones unwrap such thoughtful gifts as a medically accurate model of one pound of human fat, an IRS Christmas tree ornament, a rubber slug, hideous Republican pants, a head lice coloring book, or a genuine bull scrotum. "You shouldn't have," your friends will say, and how satisfying to know that they really mean it! As always, renowned humor columnist and champion gift-giver Dave Barry is not making this stuff up. You really CAN order these one-of-a kind objects by mail (except for the local elected official, which you can buy in nearly any neighborhood). Vendor names and prices are provided for some fifty gifts, each perfectly wrong for any occasion, any time of year. They say it's the thought that counts, and people sure will wonder what you're thinking when you shower them with gifts from Dave Barry's Gift Guide to End All Gift Guides.
