    I have a white elephant gift exchange coming up. Please help me decide on what to give from the stuff I have laying around.

    1. Heather's Tummy Fibers

    2. Captain Zantor action figure from tha 70's TV show Space: 1999.
    I got this in a Woot bag of crap.

    3. A scary Elvis bust speaker that I got during a drunken Woot Off moment.

    4. A sealed copy of Timecop on VHS. I have no idea how I ended up with this.

    Elvis looks to take up the most room, so get rid of him. Any amount of Timecop you can own just makes you better.

    Crazy bitches don't know bout White Elephant.

    I'd say the Elvis speaker. It's funny and an actually nice gift, it's perfect.

    Or you could just be "That asshole" and fill a box with trash, that always works.

    Ain't this quaint?
    usually, we have to tell noobs to Google for answers to save time, but now we have to be told to Google just to understand a question.
    confused yet?

    according to Wiki, the item that costs more to maintain than benefits from use is the perfect gift.
    So I am leaning toward Timecop or the Elvis bust.

    You should send the Timecop VHS to Twin Twist. He would totally appreciate it.

    Elvis or bust.

    Either that or a white elephant.

    I once took part in one of those Secret Santa things on another messageboard. I sent my item out but whichever fucker pulled my name never sent me anything. Won't be taking part in one of those again.

    I've participated in Secret Santa on a board three years in a row now. Last two years I actually got some awesome gifts (and hopefully gave some awesome ones).

    This year I received a lunchbag, which the UPS actually had me paying for :lol  I still don't know if my Secret Santa was pulling my leg or was serious, but it was fun (in a twisted way).

    I say put them all in a basket with some cellophane and a bow. You get rid of all your crap at once, and make someone 'happy?'

    Oh yeah, there was an episode of The Office where they did this. It was also called Yankee Swap.
