The T-shirt my husband brought back from New Orleans for our daughter: Official Alligator Wrestling Team with a bloody bite taken out of the side! She just rolled her eyes at him!

My mom brought me back authentic New England Clam Chowder that was rancid when I opened the can.

Wendy, you reminded me of a similar gift I received about two years ago. A friend brought me back a jar of "fancy" preserves she'd gotten on a trip to the far eastern tip of Long Island, New York. Unfortunately, when I opened the jar I discovered that the entire inner lid and top of the preserves were covered in some type of mold. I nearly lost my lunch as I was tossing it into the trash!

I admit I did bring my father a Pope bottle opener that they were selling outside the Vatican. I have friends that to this day, covet that very special gift.

The tackiest gift I was given was a huge, dried blow fish with glued on googly eyes.

My friend (?) brought me back an ashtray from Florida and I don't even smoke. Go figure.

My parents went to Florida and decided that my 3 year old needed a collection of snow globes. They brought back about 6 of them, all of which began leaking in days. All went into the garbage. An amusing gift was the one my mother in law brought me from Switzerland. It was a Christmas ornament depicting the birth of Jesus. Guess she forgot that I am Jewish.
