Lump of Coal

Inside the tin below is a real lump of coal. It was a Christmas gag gift to me about 20 years ago but it really hurt my feelings to get it.  Now when I see it I hope no one receive one, it is traumatic. It makes everyone smile but my smile is that twisted forced smile of a guilty child.

I hope that you never receive one because it will not make your day.

  1. Jimmy's son-in-law Glen ended up with the lump of coal that I brought as a Christmas gift to whoever picked out the present that was wrapped so pretty. In the end, I asked for my lump of coal back and gave him a "real gift." I still have that lump of coal and am dieing to use it as a gag gift again.
