Bad Gift Emporium. Can't stand to look at that glittery unicorn statue from Aunt Ethel any longer? Can't bear to wear the hand-knitted sweater from Grandma Agnes (made from her own cat's hair)? Want to offer your horrific gift items to people who can truly appreciate them, or just share the misery? The Bad Gift Emporium is for you.

Amusing, but I think flash was a bad choice of interface for this. You can't link to specific gifts and navigation is sluggish.

I agree that the interface is disappointing, demiurge. I wanted to link to specific gifts, but I thought it was fun to explore.

I love it, but yes, Flash makes it hard to enjoy.

Did somebody say unicorn?

Aw, shit. A few years back, my wife was given a crystal unicorn mobile that was custom made for this site. She felt as though it would be rude to not put it up, so it was hung in the kitchen, where I silently prayed that no-one would a) notice it or b) more importantly, comment on it, until the blessed day arrived when she felt her familial obligations had been satisfied, and it was carted off to Value Village.

Ungrateful retches.

Why are kittens submitted as "bad" gifts? Are they not adorable enough? Too full of love, perhaps? I mean, dang.

Bad navigation emporium. I flipped through 16 pages and couldn't find any glittery unicorn statues.

The Creepy Evil Octopus on page 7 was clearly submitted by someone who is boring and not fun, because that thing is incredible. I am heartbroken it is not AVAIL.
