The deadly art of gift giving

Father's day is coming! What do you get for the dad who has everything? Well, you can't get him a Dayak poisoned dart blowpipe from Kenya, or a Lohar throwing sickle, or even a gorgeous domed shield from Persia, because they've all been sold. Better hurry, or it's another tie this year. Maybe you could get him something to poke his elephants with. And yes, I am just a shill for this company: for every 10 scary-looking shark's tooth swords I sell, I get a free decorative skull.

Dammit. I'd love to get this kind of stuff, but I know my kids are gonna get me a case of Armor All or something.

Mmm... cool, refreshing Pepsi cola.

Cool site Hildago! Any dad would look pretty rad carving up the Sunday roast with one of these.

Fortunately, I have a very understanding seven-year-old, so I'll probably get a case of Sam Adams porter.

Great post, thanks so very much.

Aside :- The Dayaks come from Borneo, not Kenya. Kenyah-Kayan is the name of that particular group. Sorry to be such a pedant. :)

I'll settle for onscreen poison darts with a family gift of a pre-order of this DVD set. It seems fitting that I should desire to sit around and watch people blowing poison darts, rather than doing so myself.
