Default Annoyance gifts

I used to love to get people annoyance gifts. Something that would annoy them rather than make them happy. I gave my neice (terrible two and slightly hyper) the little popping lawnmower, to play with endlessly on moms nice hardwood floors. Never was I happier than when my sister lamented how callie loved that damn lawnmower I got her, and how she would try to hide it from her to get some peace and quiet.

Anybody else got any great annoyance gift suggestions, not for actual use, mind you, but simply for our amusement?

There was this 46 year old guy who believed himself to be a player. To my dismay I found that he was still a virgin and still lived with his mom. He use to bust my chops all year long with corny sarcastic jokes, then at our Christmas party we had a little gift exchange and we had to open our gifts in front of everyone. I somehow got him so I bought him a sex doll, when he opened the box he was soo embarrassed he never spoke to me again.

Tickle Me Elmo. The thing is possessed. It laughs in the middle of the night. It even works when you remove the batteries. I have hid it numerous times and it always pops up. I keep trying to find ways to accidently back the car over it, but haven't been successful so far.

Hahahaha. I had one of those when I was a kid. Didn't think they still make them.

My sister bought friends of ours a box of games with a bunch of pieces for their kid. When the daughter opened the present she was happy about it. The parents had that "why the f*ck did you buy that" look on their face. And they said they weren't going to use it with her. But the look was priceless and hilarious.

I bought a fart machine once.
During Christmas dinner, I had it hid and let it rip! Funny!

I could've saved you some cash just give a day warning and I'd sit around eating pickled eggs and drinking beer and I could have came over and "entertained" for free.
