DAVE BARRY ANNUAL GIFT GUIDE

Toilet Monster

 

$15.89 plus shipping and handling from Prank Place, 600 Four Rod Rd., Berlin, Conn. 06037, 800-901-1163; www.PrankPlace.com

Suggested by Dan Sauberlich of Rockford, Ill. and Layla Bohm of Lodi, Calif.

This is just the decor accessory to spice up a ''ho-hum'' bathroom. This is a rubber monster with suction cups that attach to the underside of the toilet lid. When the unsuspecting guest lifts the lid, up pops the monster, and the unsuspecting guest keels over, dead. You were never all that fond of this particular guest anyway.

This is the Toilet Monster preferred by all leading hotel chains, as well as Buckingham Palace.

    DAVE BARRY'S ANNUAL GIFT GUIDE

    What's behind Santa's Ho-Ho-Ho

    Holiday gift-giving is a tradition that dates back roughly 2,006 years, to when the Three Wise Men went to Bethlehem with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the Baby Jesus. Of course the next day the Virgin Mary returned these items for store credit, because she was a low-income mother with a newborn, and as the old saying goes, ''You can't diaper a baby with frankincense.''
