Butt Ugly

I don't know who coined the phrase "Butt Ugly" but they must have had this in mind. My SIL gave this to me for Christmas; I'm not sure why because I've never done anything to her. At first glance I thought it was a Chef Hook, but the end slopes in a way that won't actully hold anything that's hung on it. It even looks a bit like a Mer-Chef (mermaid+Chef), so perhaps I should throw it into deep water...I'm thinking this guy even looks a bit phallic, so perhaps I should just put him in a brown paper sack and hide him somewhere.

What do YOU do when you're given something hidious by a family member?

And puh-leeez, don't tell me you think he's cute
and you've got one just like him hanging on your
kitchen wall.
I won't believe you!

I am laughing at you, no, not AT you, with you. I hope you're laughing. If not I'm totally laughing at you. What a gift! It kinda reminds me of the hanious statue of a chef we had at Earls when I worked there as a student. I hated him!

What should you do with him? You could combine the paper sack idea with deep water if you want, or hang onto him for a future White Elephant. He is begging to be re-gifted. Or, start a club where you mail him to the next person on the list and they have to take pictures of him "out on the town" when they have him and pass him on. That would be fun. Sort of like a roaming gnome.

Are you sure you didn't do something to your SIL? They can be revengeful at times, and this reads revenge all over it.

Can't say I've ever seen one of those before.
Stopped by from Blog Stalkers to say Hi and I like your blog!

Gladys said...

You wait until next Christmas and wrap it up and give it back to her.

Robbie said...

I have to say, the idea of the roaming gnome from B does sound like fun. But I also LOVE the idea Gladys has of wrapping it up and giving it back to her! He surely is butt ugly though.

Lynette said...

I won't even pretend to lie and say he's cute - you DID do something to her and she's keeping you guessing. I'd wrap it up and give it back to her with a perfectly angelic smile on my face and dare her to call you out!! But, that's just me!!

Jillene said...

Here from BSU. That thing is hideous!! I probably would re-gift it right back to her!!

♥georgie♥ said...

Oh my LOL!!!! well he is 'unique'...if you play white elephant i would save him for next year

Jill of All Trades said...

Well, that may end up in my re-gifting closet or white elephant pile. I've gotten some, let's say unusual gifts like that. The Hubby thinks all gifts are re-gifting candidates. One gift the SIL got us many, many years ago The Hubby had a fit over and ranted and raved about the stupidy of it. Let me say we use that gift to this day and he has had to eat his words. Serves him right.

Yeas, its ugly, altho it does look a bit like my cousin Giuseppe from Italia! I say bury him beneath an oak tree on a night with a full moon at midnight and see what happens!

I have to admit if I get a bad gift that is beyond regiftable (which is a whole nother post lol), I just toss it. :( I know, that's aweful but it has to be really really bad for me to ditch.

Helene said...

Um, yeah, I have to agree with you!! That's the kind of thing that would give me nightmares at night! I have no clue what you should do with him except maybe shove him in a drawer in your kitchen and only bring him out when your SIL comes over!

I came over from BSU! Glad I stopped by!

mama's smitten said...

yah! I agree not very attractive! :) This nice thing to do would be diplay it. But Im not always that nice!

Mark and Katie said...

You know how you hear that a good tip for gift giving is to give someone something you would like yourself...well maybe she really wants him and you can just gift him back to her.

Kimmy said...

Don't you just HATE getting mind-less, useless gifts?! Great..it's the thought that counts but make it purposeful at least, right??!! Personally, I box my "useless" gifts away. I don't have the heart to toss it, plus...just in case they ask where it is. :o)

Stopping by to say hi!! I see we have something in common....TEA!!! YUM!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

When you get something horrendous....you have a few choices....use it for a dirty santa gift....regift it to someone you don't like...or...hello Salvation Army! Where in Louisiana are you from? I have a good friend from Monroe. I love your blog....I am not southern enough to like sweet tea....I drink mine hot...or unsweetened....but I love your stuff. Keep it coming.

Bee and Rose said...

The merpeople are probably starving cause their chef is in your kitchen....

Hilarious! My sister and I give each other Butt Ugly gifts on purpose!!LOL!!

Fun post!

Laura said...

I think I would put way up at the top of a closet and save it for a "White Elephant" party. Or a garage sale. I've learned that people buy crazy things at garage sales!

Kirsty said...

Bwahaha!!! Totally re gift that back to her next year;-)

Robin said...

Seriously? That was a Christmas gift? For real? Wow.
I think you should have fun with him and place him in silly places around your home for your husband to find. (It was HIS sister, right?) Like, hiding under the covers by his pillow or in the freezer next to the frozen pizza.
:)

Mc Allen said...

hey, Im the one who gave it to her, I cannot believe she gave it away... it was modeled after my dead great uncle whom I loved very much. sorry you dont like it. he was a very good man. it is very special to our family and was featured on unique roadshow. said to be worth an untold amount of $$... (to far?)


yep, re gift fo sho!!


:) LA

Katherine Aucoin said...

That's too funny and I hope your SIL doesn't read your blog.

Bee and Rose said...

You're so sweet that I have a lovely award for you over at my blog! Now run along to my bloggy and get your blog bling!

Hugs!

Kate said...

That is sooo not cute at all. I've got a few hidden gems of Christmas past myself. I used to get glass paperweights and other such lovely knick knacks from an old family friend but I think you win for the butt Ugly gift of Chirstmas 2008.

Tammy said...

My mom did her kitchen in the "Chef" motif, but I would never have given her this.

Save it for a white elephant gift exchange.

Shawn said...

This made me laugh out loud. It is very funny looking. Why would anyone buy it let alone give it as a gift? LOL

pam said...

I would put it in my basement. You should see my basement it is full of great stuff (aka junk)

I love it!!
