    Surprised that many parents were so desperate for their 15 minutes of fame they not pulled a prank on their children but recorded and then braodcast it on TV. And there's difference between a crappy gift and sh** that should be thrown in the garbage. They're just a little too young for that kind of joke and their parents should be embarrassed.

    The only parents that should be embarrassed is the parents of that last kid with his mouth. But all in all, I thought it was very funny....and those kids will get over it soon enough. I love a laugh at someone elses expense :)

    Didn't see the last one, got irritated at the first few and stopped it. I've never been a fan of practical jokes to start with, but kids their age should be treated better by their parents. They weren't lousy gifts, it was garbage.

    That's just plain cruel and unnecessary. I love it. :D

    I don't think it would be quite that bad, they'd probably just grow up to serial killers or cannibals or something. Except the one with the hammer, he'll grow up thinking he's Thor. :D

    I showed my teenage boys that and both of them couldn't figure why the one boy was disappointed with a hammer. Then they thanked me for never doing a dirty trick like that to them (they would love a hammer though. Then again my younger son will be getting a 50 lb sack of coal if I can find one.)

    I could get you some coal if you lived near me, my company ships rock on barges on the ohio river and we have to clean the coal out of the barges before we load the rock. Im giving my wife a lump of coal as a prank for christmas. Haha

    I've learned a couple things after so many years of marriage.
    Kitchen appliances for the wife is no-go (but okay to give a young couple just starting out).
    Sexy sleep wear for the wife is a no-go (but okay for the girl friend).
    Lawn equipment for the wife is a no-go.
    Car parts for the wife is a no-go.
    A slip of paper promising something to the wife (supper, vacation, etc...) is a no-go.
    And (for mine), any hunting / fishing stuff for the wife is a no-go.

    When i was a kid, my parents often set up a game like a scavenger hunt with me having to solve clues to get my Easter basket and special Christmas presents. I freakin loved it.

    My dad is the master at fooling someone with xmas gifts. He'll buy my mom a ring and put the small box in another box in another box in another and so on and fill any deadspace with canned goods to add weight. The first time he did this to my mom the look on her face when she opened a large box and saw it full of creamed corn and pinto beans beans was hilarious.

    My son has been putting together the stuff so he can start making knives out of old truck springs and files. Coal is on the (very short) list of things he needs to get started forging. He has made a few out of some scrap material I have around and they have turned out great, but his goal is to make a Damascus blade from scratch. I'm not gonna hold him back!

    Please don't! That's a hobby I've been wanting to get into myself. I could actually get coal for free if I had a forge to run it in, my mom works at a coal mine and they have no problem with some if their employees bringing home a few buckets as some folks in her area still heat with old wood burning kitchen stoves. Throw a big lump of coal in one of those too heat a one room shack and it will just about make you sleep with the windows open, I know, I've been there.

    I once found a card with a picture of a 1950ish woman holding a toaster, iron, and vacuum cleaner. It said "She was so thrilled with her Christmas gifts... (open the card) She wasted no time in shoving them up his azz!" Got it for my sis in law.

    My wife's birthday, our anniversary and Christmas are very close together. Most of the time it is one major gift. A couple of years ago I got her a new kevlar kayak. That was major and what she wanted and she it was her choice. I had given her a new kayak paddle for mothers day that year and she was thrilled with it. Feed her interests and you cant go too wrong but you better no get her junk. This year she got a top end Kindle so far.
