Just in time for the holidays, it’s Dave Barry’s 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. As he does every year, Barry took reader suggestions and compiled them into a weird and funny annual gift guide. This year’s guide features an emergency underpants dispenser, a trailer-hitch-mounted stripper pole and Mega Plumber Action Hero, of which Barry writes, “Do you have a child on your holiday gift list? If so, we’re certain that child will be very surprised to receive this item. ” This makes me wish I had a child.
Count me among the readers who wishes Barry still wrote regularly for the Miami Herald. Nowadays he pops up for the Olympics, political conventions and holidays, but the world would be a better place if he had a regular gig, one in which he opined weekly on things such as creeping fascism and animal mask weddings and so forth.
