I love the holidays, as I’m one of those people that really enjoys giving gifts. I love seeing the look on people’s faces when they tear off the wrapping paper and see the perfect present. Of course every now and then I get a kick out of placing someone’s gift inside a completely different box, so that it looks like I got them a boring toaster or something. It’s usually good for a laugh, mostly because they don’t know what to say upon realizing that I got them a crappy gift. Of course when they open it up, they find something much better. Well I think that sort of prank is just the idea behind these crazy gift boxes.
If you’ve never been to The Onion, I suggest stopping by there for a good laugh. They come up with some of the most outrageous fake news stories. So who better to come up with some really crappy fake products than them? They’re offering up a set of 6 12”x9”x4” boxes that depict some really strange products. These include an organizer for your hat visor, a power strip for your car (complete with four outlets, two USB ports and a parallel printer port), a Peaceful Progression Smoke Alarm (wake up to the gentle sounds of the rainforest) and even a USB toaster. $30 for a set of six cardboard boxes seems a bit crazy, but if you’re a prankster it’ll be worth every penny.
