    My in-laws got me this........... thing? for xmas.

    Now I love my in-laws. No, really, I do. And this.... thing is certainly useful, it's just a hideous piece of crap though. They buy a lotta crap, but their hearts are in the right place.

    Here it is http://www.ltdcommodities.com/home/...&G=381&Kwd=flashlight&Item=403682-8FHT&Page=1

    The solar flashlight part is handy, but the compass and knife are pretty lame, and god this thing is ugly. Some 12 year old Chinese girl probably got paid 2 cents to put the thing together.

    Did you get the Bear, Deer, or Fish model?

    You could always drop it in the woods and tell your in-laws: "I set it down for one second and it was just so woodsy that I couldn't pick it out."

    I don't know if that would work. They may buy him two the next time so if he loses one, he'll still have the other one. Haha.

    Could have been worse. Could have been that singing fish wall plaque. Now that thing is annoying.

    Just put it up in your attic or shed and when they ask where it is, tell them it's in a special spot for emergencies. Haha.

    My uncle got his wife a bearskin rug that talks, but it's only only acceptable because it talks dirty.

    "How about a nice Swedish massage? How much for a happy ending?"

    "Why don't I give you a big, pink hickey on your... ankle?"

    "Looks like somebody shaved down under today!"

    "Ladies, come lay on me, I'm ready for anything."

    WTH? That is about as bad as that $900 swiss army knife thing. Oh well, someone had to make the mistake so the rest of us didn't. Haha.

    I hate that singing fish. Hammer time. Haha. Makes for good target practice.

    [dunno]The perfect gift for any outdoor person!
    • Available in three woodsy styles, these sturdy, take-anywhere cold cast ceramic and plastic essentials have the appearance of real wood.
    • Select from Bear, Deer and Fish.
    • Solar-powered flashlight operates off sunlight instead of batteries.
    • Also features a built-in compass and retractable knife in the handle.
    • Each measures 7-1/8" x 2-5/8".
    Well you certainly are "any outdoor person"..
    I know , my mom sent me a "siurvival knife one year with the vinyl sheath., ball compass on the handle the tang was about 3/4 inch long threaded into the cast alum handle......po crap, but she meant well.

    I remember a gift a family member got me. They meant well and it was cool though not for functional use.

    It was a very shiny survival knife. Had a gold eagle painted on the side and you could have used it to signal aliens from the glare. The sheath was a real hard plastic that wouldn't have bent unless you had used a blow torch. The blade was made in Pakistan or some such.

    Family try and sometimes they get it right. This time it was useless for 'sneaking'. Haha.

    More than one of their gifts found it's way onto the gun range :) My favorite was the singing, dancing dog in a raincoat w/ umbrella. FIRE!
