Gag gifts for geeks

A USB toaster, and other stuff

Gag gifts are a lost art. All too often, we resort to the same whoopie-cushion cliches for lack of anything more inventive. The Onion Store, however, has put its exceptional snark quotient to good use with something different--and even better, it's aimed at least partly at geeks.

Last-minute pranksters might still have time to get the "GotchaBox," a set of boxes for three fake gifts: the "USB Toaster," the "Make-Your-Own Umbrella Kit" and the "Salt Of The Month Club." The box print is well done, easily mistakable for products from the cheesiest "as-seen-on-TV" infomercials.

"The victim/recipient will congratulate you (eventually) for providing them an utterly perplexing and wonderfully humbling moment," according to the product description. The folks at the Onion Store obviously don't know our friends.
