A Thoughtful Christmas GiftJim asked his friend, Tony, whether he had bought his wife anything for Christmas. 'Yes,' came the answer from Tony who was a bit of a chauvinist, 'I've bought her a belt and a bag.' 'That was very kind of you,' Jim added, 'I hope she appreciated the thought.' Tony smiled as he replied, 'So do I, and hopefully the vacuum cleaner will work better now.'
Get The Right Vacuum CleanerMy mate just hired an Eastern European cleaner. It took her 5 hours to Hoover the house. Turns out she was a Slovak.
Crazy 8 Ball - Right PresentThis looks like like a normal Pool ball but it has one difference, namely a bias which makes it wobble and go in all directions, except the one intended. Just watch the amazement on your opponents face, as after you have discretely substituted the 8 Ball, he tries his pot!

Whenever someone comes within 30cm (12 inches) of your beer the mafia style voice alert sounds: 'Keepa Da Hands off ma BEER!' What is the Cost of Christmas? Santa Claus is the patron saint of supply and demand is a quotation to be found on a BBC [British Broadcasting Corporation] online business page. The following article is based on that quote. Will and Guy have considerable sympathy with that point of view. Christmas has become vital to the global economy, and that has begun to outweigh its religious significance, especially for children. The luxury goods market at Christmas is worth £35bn, [approx. $65bn USD] while the music business sees 40% of its annual sales at Christmas. More than 70% of children associate Christmas with Santa Claus, and only 8% with Jesus Christ, we have learned. The Business that is Christmas In 1647 Oliver Cromwell and the Puritans ordered the Mayor of London to tear down and burn decorations to stamp out all signs of Christmas frivolity. It was in the 19th century that the USA re-invented the holiday. A Philadelphia department store introduced Santa Claus; originally a 4th century monk, the patron saint of gifts, as a selling technique. The Place of Christmas Trees The Christmas tree tradition came from Germany, through Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband, who introduced it in 1847 to the UK. Now over 7m Christmas trees are sold the UK, worth £150m and they are decorated with £200m worth of tinsel and baubles. We also consume 60,000 tons of chocolate worth £600m, 200 million litres of soft drinks, and 10m turkeys. Britain makes 2000 million crackers each year. To earn £60 a week, home workers make 1500 crackers at 4p each, the components, however, are imported from China. Christmas Tree Customs. Christmas certainly has become the beating heart of a huge global industry Around the world, production lines have been rolling all year: from the toy factories of China which makes 80% of the toys sold at Christmas, to the perfumeries and luxury goods manufacturers of France, the video game designers of Lara Croft in Derby, England to the manufacturers of must-have video games in Japan, to the Christmas tree plantations of Britain. All of them are hoping that despite financial uncertainties that we spend extravagantly at Christmas. The UK toy market is worth almost £2bn. With half that expenditure coming in the few weeks before Christmas, manufacturers and retailers can't start early enough to begin marketing their products. Even in the heat of summer, world-famous toy shop Hamleys opens its doors to the media to watch manufacturers jostling to be the must-have Christmas toy. Over 20,000 new toys are developed each year, but only a few hundred will make it onto the toy shop shelves, and maybe a few dozen will be hits. To persuade them, UK children are exposed to 18,000 TV ads each year and successful companies can make massive sales. The following figures support this proposition:
- The Pokemon craze saw 1000 product licences up for grabs from Nintendo. Totally sales reached $18bn.
- More than 22 billion Barbie dolls have been sold since its launch by Mattel.
- Barbie's rival, Sindy, developed by Hasbro, faces an uphill struggle in penetrating the crucial US market. Will and Guy's Conclusions
- Ironically, the production of toys is a global business with the main production centres in Asia, whose people do not even celebrate the Christmas holiday.
- In China, a skilled workforce on a monthly wage equivalent to the price of a single toy manufactures almost 80% of the toys sold at Christmas.
- Toys are now designed in one continent [America], manufactured in another [Asia], and marketed in a third continent [Europe].
