Do you have any musical people on your holiday gift list? We’re talking about the kind of people who are always humming, whistling, or drumming on their desks, to the point where their co-workers want to beat them to death with their office chairs.

This is the ideal gift for those people. It’s a T-shirt that has been fitted with batteries, wires and other electronic items that magically transform it from an ordinary garment into a garment that is really uncomfortable. But also when you hit certain parts of it just right, it makes noises that sound vaguely like really bad recordings of what could conceivably be drums. We’re talking about hours of entertainment, assuming the person being entertained has an unusually small brain. Otherwise we’re talking about maybe 15 seconds of entertainment.

This is the only drum T-shirt recommended by leading musicians such as the late Ray Charles.

  • PERFECT POLLY

    You've probably seen the TV commercials for Perfect Polly, the battery-operated pretend parakeet manufactured in China from genuine plastic.

  • PRISM GLASSES

    These are special glasses that use an amazing scientific principle — possibly photosynthesis — to bend light beams at a 90-degree angle. This means that when you put these glasses on, instead of seeing what's in front of you, you're actually looking straight down.

  • CHICKEN BRASSIERE

    If you are not putting a brassiere on your hen (or self-mutilating parrot) (which would be a good name for a rock band) you could very well be contributing to its DEATH.
