Any of you fellas frantically trying to decide what to give your boo for Christmas?

Let Daily RFT narrow your options with a list of gift ideas you should definitely avoid this Yuletide season.

(Unless, of course, you wish to be single by the new year.)

10) Gonorrhea St. Louisans bestow this present upon one another more often, per capita, than any other county and independent city in the entire nation (with the exception of Orleans County, Louisana). Don't follow the crowd. There are better, um, stocking stuffers. 
9) A terminally ill dog You're right, they do cost less. But your thrift won't necessarily be appreciated.

8) Celebrity sex tape starring you and a celebrity (celebrity is Steve Buscemi) Might leave her feeling "out of her element."

7) All-inclusive vacation to Thailand for one, (i.e., you) She always complains there's never enough time to clean; this way, you won't be a distraction! Ever again. 

6) Saw I - V Box Set There's not really anything funny about this. So if you insist on giving it to her, maybe stop weirdly giggling for a few minutes.

5) Anything from Ikea that requires two people for assembly You don't truly know someone until you descend into the emotional trauma of putting together Ikea furniture. You might get a bunk bed out of it -- which you'll soon be sleeping on. Alone. 

4) Album of the best up-skirt photos you've taken this year (none feature your lady) "But honey, these are artfully done!" [Knee to balls; break-up]

3) Your left ear Vincent Van Gogh was a genius, and this didn't work for him. You're not, and it won't either. 

2) Body-fat calculator/bathroom scale  Your honey won't take this kindly. It totally sends the wrong message: That it's somehow your responsibility to help her stop eating like Jabba the Hut.

1) Lifetime subscription to RFT Spare us the comment, wiseacres; we already made it for you!
