In our wide and varied travels across the information superhighway, in addition to the fierce and fabulous, we encounter the insane, the arcane, and the absolutely friggin' ridiculous. Sometimes the paraphernalia, tchotchkes, and fashion disasters we come across are so atrocious we have to vent our disbelief and horror, but know, dear readers, we share only the crème de la crap with you.
The Electronic Yodelling Pickle ($16) has to be one of the most passive-aggressive gifts of all time. After all, how much do you have to dislike a person to present her with a plastic pickle that yodels? Please allow us to share for a moment: Worked with a woman a couple of years ago whom we tried to embrace, tried to like, tried not to stab in the eye with a plastic fork. You know how some people will just work your last nerve, no matter how hard you try to like them (or how much you meditate)? Oh, how we would have loved to have presented her with a yodeling pickle. It might have made us feel better.
