    Your website is hilarious. Although I do have to say that Lego to a 34-year-old man cannot possibly be on the worst gifts list! Since my husband wants to be a lego master builder, and my son wants to work at Lego when he grows up, pleeease rethink that item. I do agree with the rest however. : )
