This year I'd rather have a gift that makes me laugh than one that costs money and never gets used (panini maker, dip warmer, that huge skillet which is way too heavy for me). Furthermore, I have a 12-year-old's sense of humor.

So when I heard that Stupid.comhad come out with a holiday gift list, I clicked my mouse faster than a flash crash.

This year's list includes "Beard Beanies" for $26.99, for those who are "dying for some facial hair but don't want to put in that extra maintenance."

They're imported.

I'd love to hear some plant manager in Vietnam explaining to the knitters what they're making and why. "Americans are crazy and they like stupid things. We are winning the war all over again."

There's also "Dysfunctional Family Bingo",where, instead of letters on your Bingo card, there are phrases which describe awkward holiday gatherings. Hmm, like what you ask, well all the great toughies such as: "Questionable Parenting", "Fake Smile", and "Political Debate".

I'd like to suggest, "Learning your unmarried alcoholic cousin is pregnant", and "Why does Nana want medical marijuana?"

For easy sight gags, there's "Mistletoe To Go" ($14.99), which adheres to your forehead with a suction cup.

Then there's theToilet Coffee Mug ($16.99), which may reflect the quality of the office coffee.

The "Hot Guys With Baby Animals 2011" calendar is both funny AND hot ($14.99).

But the stupidest, and therefore the best, is the section called Toys for Jewish Dogs.

These "Chewish" toys include Schmutz the Octopus, Lox the Fish, the Kosher Bone, and Trayf the Pig (A pig? I looked up "trayf" and I'm still laughing).

The toys are perfect for what Stupid.comdescribes "a Reformed Rottweiler, a Conservative Collie, or an Orthodox Otterhound."

You can order now, and even if Hanukah is over by the time the toys arrive, the dogs will never know.
