CAT LADY ACTION FIGURE

 

$11.09 (price may vary) plus shipping and handling from amazon.com

Suggested by Sue Eckhardt of Gatesville, Texas.

Here's a fun gift for that special child on your holiday list (we are using "special" in the sense of "strange"). This is an action figure depicting a cat lady who is wearing a bathrobe and pajamas and is ready for action with her six included cat figurines. Imagine the hours of enjoyment some lucky youngster will have, making the cat lady feed the cats, change the cat litter, feed the cats again, change the litter again, collapse on the ground and lie motionless for days while the cats pay no attention to her, etc. This is a WAY better present for a modern youngster than the Xbox, which to the best of our knowledge does not come with ANY cat figurines.

  • 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.
