My mother-in-law gave my two-year-old a toy electric guitar for Christmas. All you had to do is touch it to make random heavy metal riffs pierce the air. I was lucky it ran on batteries, because batteries can be removed as soon as Grandma turns her back.

When you have a child, your parents are very likely to shower them with gifts that make noise. You generously consider that maybe they don't know any better. In most families, you would be mistaken. They know full well what they are doing, and it is part of their revenge for the grief you caused them when you were a kid. This is the latest from Lunarbaboon.

I once inquired as to what my niece and nephew would like for Christmas. Nephew was about four.

SIL: He would really like a drum.
ME: Yeah, haha, like that's going to happen, huh?
SIL: No seriously, he'd really like that.
ME: Don't tell me you're okay with that!
SIL: Sure, it's fine.

So I got him a drum. I was too polite to inquire about their feelings on it later, but I secretly both laughed and cringed when I bought it.
