Lol I never saw these, definitely would've used them if I had. Although I think the griddle alarm clock would back fire.

Yeah that one is outrageous. It was a real toss up on which ones to buy. They are all so funny. It's funny when you read the descriptions on the box. But when you actually read the details and small print its comical. On the "Bathe and Brew" it says "only 12 gallons of shower water will get you one cup of hot steaming coffee."

No, but I have to go to BB&B now and check these out (I have a stack of BB&B coupons).

I used a Groupon to get mine, so they were a pretty good deal. They were the hit of Christmas! The alarm clock/griddle and the family blankeez were the best, and there was actually some disappointment when the recipients realized it wasn't a real item.

I gifted someone something in a Gravy Fountain box from archie mcphee. The box was hilarious, the recipient did her best to hide her disgust at what she thought she was getting (Smooths Out Lumps, Prevents Gravy Skin, Also works with cheese!). Nothing makes a good surprise better than preceding it with horrified disappointment.

@kayak: Never heard of Gravy Fountain lol but it sounds like you might be on to something there.

Wouldn't work well in my family. Since we've always recycled boxes from item to item, the family mantra is "don't trust what the box says."

@whatsmypassword: No, I'm not on to anything, I just bought the thing. That particular model has apparently been since discontinued.
