Gifts with an edge: the Fanny bank


As the holiday season approaches, we thought you might appreciate some gift suggestions with a twist, appropriate for those on your list who aren't satisfied with the same old, same old.

I'm betting that among your gift obligations is a person whose humor level topped out in third grade, who still prefers coarse poop jokes and puns to the more refined humor of grown-ups. If you're tired of trying to elevate that person's taste with more distinguished gifts, only to see them languish in his plastic shed, perhaps this year you should allow your gift to sink to his level. If that makes sense to you, we call your attention to the Fanny Bank.

This modern take on the piggy bank has a coin slot just where you might expect in in an exposed bum. Upon deposit of a coin, one is rewarded with a flatulent thank-you, sure to delight anyone with a fundamental level of humor.

A side benefit to this gift is that, ever after, you'll be able to hand the recipient a coin, tell him to shove it up his *** and he won't take offense.
