The catalog that arrived today is one I know we've never ordered from; I should have us removed from their mailing list. But it's so divinely silly -- even the name -- Hammacher Schlemmer -- is fun to say. "Offering the Best (i.e. expensive), the Only, and the Unexpected for 160 years."
Their selection include lots of stuff that I can only assume are meant as gifts for the person who already has everything. This Swiss Army knife, for example, would be perfect for the Edward Scissorhands fan in your life. (He'll need a big pocket.) A steal at $1.400.
What could be better for Uncle Festus who had his license revoked after that DUI? Now he can motor down to the Quik Stop for beer. Note that the cooler can be accessed while driving -- a nice feature. And go on and spring for that cushioned seat and backrest -- Uncle Festus will thank you.
Do you think my agent would like this for her Chrismas present? I am sorely tempted.
