Looking for a strange gift? Go to StrangeDeals.com

If you're stuck for a weird gift, check out StrangeDeals.com, a web site on BradDeals, and run by BradsDeals, which I've just posted about. How strange is the site?

Well, if you'd like to get a wedding cake topper for a gun enthusiast, you can find one here -- a miniature groom and bride, each holding a shotgun. Perfect for any couple who isn't just registered at Target, but with the National Rifle Association.

Seriously, this is one weird site. You can buy a "pick your nose party cup," which isn't what it sounds like, but would still be an amusing purchase.

You can buy hand soap. That doesn't sound strange, of course, but it's flesh-colored (non-ethnic flesh colored) soap that looks like little human hands. It's very creepy.

If you're not a fan of the current presidential administration, you can buy a Bush Countdown Clock for $19.99. I'm guessing as the months pass by, they'll be marking this one down. At any rate, definitely an interesting site to check out. If you are a fan, you might think that sounds tasteless, but it's nothing in terms of taste compared to the Psycho shower curtain -- a lovely white shower curtain with a silhouette picture of Norman Bates dressed as his mother, wielding a knife.

My anniversary is next month. I don't know what I'm getting my wife, but I do know that after I buy a gift, I'll come here -- and be reassured that whatever I bought, I could have done much worse.
