Trivia Blog: The Gift That No One Keeps On Giving

These Trivia Blog posts come from the emails I send out as Quizmaster of the Gael Pub Trivia Night every Tuesday.  But seeing as how they comprise most of the writing I seem to do these days, I thought it fitting to include them on the Pale Writer blog as well.  I won't include things like info about categories or drink specials, but will keep the bulk of the rest.  Hopefully you enjoy, so much so that you come out some Tuesday at 8:30 (3rd Ave. b/t 82nd and 83rd)...

As you scramble along in these final days leading up to Christmas, or Hanukkah, or Fuck You Mom and Dad I’m Not Gonna Buy Into Your Corpo-Religious Bullshit Tradition Day, or whatever holiday you happen to hold close to your heart, I thought I’d lend my services in your gift-buying hunt and offer up suggestions for quality, last-minute gifts for your friends and family:
  • “New York Jets Super Bowl Champions 2012″ t-shirts; get ‘em now before they ship them to Somalia to clothe starving children!
  • A “replacement” cat for the one you “accidentally” backed over in your parent’s driveway
  • Paper bag + airplane glue + a little imagination = hours and hours of fun
  • Your Uncle Pat’s lost dignity
  • Don’t think of it as roadkill, think of it as a low-maintenance pet
  • A solid handshake
  • The complete set of Pens from the Banks of Lower Manhattan
  • The DVD box set of the entire series of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila; it’s only like $3 at that gas station DVD bin, you guys!
  • All those packets of soy sauce that have been piling up in your kitchen drawer this past year
  • Don’t think of it as herpes, think of it as a new lifelong companion
