As a childhood 'poo-presents' trauma survivor I do not find this in the slightest bit funny.<br><br>
Particularly the bit where the woman with the white carpet gives her daughter a half eaten jam sandwich. That wasn't funny at all.

I have done something like this. I put ugly underwear on top of a game an ex very much wanted.

That was so funny! I feel bad for the couple kids who got super upset, but from outside looking in, that was hysterical! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br>
My family used to do all sorts of crazy 'presents' and either hide the real present inside, or give them the real present after opening the gag gift. Hilarity ensued. Two examples are one time, my mom carved some space out of a pineapple and put a perfume her cousin wanted inside, sealed the pineapple then wrapped it and gave it to her cousin. Another one was my mom bough some baby diapers, mixed peanut butter, mustard, corn and some other things, put the mixture in all the diapers. Then in about a third of the diapers, she plastic wrapped some lottery tickets and placed them in, put the 30 diapers in a box, and wrapped it up and gave it to her uncle. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

This reminds me a few years ago , my sister handed saying to him I didn't know what to get you , to our nephew which is in early teens at the time a VHS tape sized gift, when he opened the gift he carried on saying how he loved it , screaming and acting out the excitement, after about 5-10 mins of carrying on he showed the camera and everyone, get this it was a VHS tape of a cabbage patch kid movie LOL he was trying to pawn it off to me I said no thank you, not like I don't like cabbage patch kids but not in VHS tapes LOL.

My favorite was the little girl who got the half eaten sandwich, and her brother <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br>
If I acted like that heavy boy who got the hello kitty shirt, I wouldn't have gotten anything else due to that attitude, seriously.

That was my favorite too. She was pretty gracious about it.<br><br>
And yeah...if I had acted like Hello Kitty boy, I doubt I'd have gotten any real presents. What a brat.

Oh and one year I mixed up my niece's present with my nephew's on purpose. They just laughed it off.

One Chrimbus my cousin got a book (in my nuclear family we did Chanukah, but my dads extended family does christmas), they only give one gift a year, and they don't take 'santa' lists because that myth was never perpetuated in our family. She starts CRYING saying no one ever loved her and how she wishes they would just get her normal presents like every other family, the book was my Aunt's great grandmothers, and very important to her. Kelsey the cousin never got another christmas gift ever again.<br><br>
My dad told me he was glad when even if I didn't like a gift, I still graciously accepted it and said thank you enthusiastically, because if I didn't I would not only never get another holiday gift again, but that would humiliate us to the point I would get my head chewed off for like an hour. I'm glad I never tested that statement, because he meant it.

That's how I was raised as well. If we didn't like a gift, we accepted it and were grateful anyway. I remember several instances in which I got gifts I didn't like, but I never once acted like a brat about it. I don't know why parents let kids get away with such bratty, rude, ungrateful behavior. That stuff never flew in my family.

I think she was 12 when the incident happened, but she was their only minor child (she has two others, but they're like 15-20 years older than Kelsey).
