15 Holiday Presents You Should Not Buy 

Do not buy these holiday gifts, no matter how easy they may seem. By RFT Staff.
"Bush Sux" T-Shirts
By the time junior or cousin Tim gets this shirt or any of the other 1,000 similar designs, it'll be relevant for about a month. Resist the urge because it's the "easy choice" for your liberal relative.
Guns N Roses - Chinese Democracy
All that wait for dedicated GNR fans resulted in this piece? An easy choice for the former metal head in your family, but they will likely resell it before 2009.
GM Stock
Stock in General Motors. Also applies to stock in the New York Times and Lee Enterprises.
Huck
The audiobook of Do the Right Thing by Mike Huckabee, as read by Mike Huckabee. (six hours on five CD's!) Just stick to Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing, or spend the money on some sweet flicks by Huck's pal, Chuck Norris (try Delta Force.)
Are you calling me stupid?
A Richie Incognito football jersey. Sure to insult the receiver of the gift, just like Incognito.
Obvious
A Tae Kwon Do Jesus statue. Nuff said.
Porn
A copy of Hustler's "Nailin' Paylin," because porn is never a great idea for a Christmas gift, and porn with topical subject matter is always a bad idea.
We Stink!
Any St. Louis Rams apparel. If you've already bought something, the receiver of your gift may also ask for a paper bag to wear over their head.
Full House to Entourage
Bob "Good Guy Gone Wrong" Saget and his comedy special, That Ain't Right. No it's not, Bob.
Video Professor
Video Professor lessons for obsolete programs -- Ever wanted to learn how to use that dusty copy of Microsoft's FrontPage 2000? How about PowerPoint 2002? Word Perfect 9 or Word 2002? Now you can.
Web Cam
A web cam. Google image search "Web cam" (not while at work) and you'll be presented with thousands of reasons why you should not get your kid one of these. Ever.
Swingin' Christmas
Continuing with music, how about not one, but two Brian Setzer Christmas release this year. Not one. Two.

No You Can't!
Obama perfume -- it's out there. Your special someone is probably already satisfied with the nine Obama/Biden stickers on their car. They don't need to smell like the commander-in-chief.
Economist Trading Cards
These Economist Trading Cards were created by the University of Michigan at Flint, by you guessed it, the Economics Club. They are guaranteed to systematically suck the remaining drops of fun out of card trading.
Shutter Shades
Inexpensive as they may be, this trendy item has jumped the shark. As if you needed another reason not to wear them, look who's sporting them here. Just say no, middle America.
