Children Tears are the Sign of a Good Christmas Prank

There’s only 5 days till Christmas, and all through my house.
Is me constantly stirring and I better not see a mouse.
I don’t have a chimney, but by god I’m cranked.
I’m going to get my brother, get him good and pranked.

Christmas is probably one of my favourite times of the year. I actually really enjoy spending time with friends and family. Enjoying good food, drink and of course, presents. I’m always a little overly generous at times during Christmas. I like the idea of having a ton of wrapped gifts for other people. I always try to get that one gift for one person that makes their holiday. A couple years ago it was Bon Jovi tickets for my Dad.

That being said, I’m also a big fan of getting a prank gift for someone. Typically that person is my brother. He’s 18, and for the last 8 or so year, there’s typically been SOMETHING to prank him. My sister and I are fans of the traditional coal prank, where you put a whole bunch of coal wrapped up in his stocking.

This year though, I want to make it a good one. I’m thinking of putting his gift in a freezer bag, freezing it in a bucket of water… then putting that frozen block into another watertight bag and then wrap that. Thoughts? Seems like a lot of work though for probably not a great pay off of stupid laughter.

Did you see Jimmy Kimmel the other day? He had parents give an early gift to their kids.. but it had to be a crappy gift. If you missed it, here you go:

Hilarious. Also, Fat slobs who love Star Wars make me smile. I think we also stumbled upon how to get America thin again?

And finally… because I know my opening rendition of “Twas” twasn’t very good… here you go!

I’m off to the Dominican on the 27th and will be doing some blogging from down there. Mostly to make people jealous. But I’ll probably have a post or two before that. Fuck I love Christmas!

  • I am definitely in the habit of giving deliberately bad/prank gifts to people as part of a larger series of gifts. Glad to see I’m not alone!

  • Hahaha no way. Definitely not alone. There has to be some stupid laughs at Christmas :P

  • I love the Jimmy Kimmel video. Totally hilarious.  I actaully feel bad for the kids, I don’t know how I would have reacted if I got a hot dog or a half-eaten sandwich for Hanukkah :)

    I also love that the one kid said to tell Jimmy to suck his balls. 

    I feel old saying this, but kids these days…
