    Web site ranks stupid Christmas gifts

    From Mother Teresa breath spray to a screaming rubber chicken, manufacturers come up with stockings full of stupid gifts in time for the holidays with one Web site dedicated to finding the most idiotic.

    Web site Stupid.com, which claims finding a truly stupid gift is an art form, on Monday unveiled its list of the top 10 "stupidest" holiday gifts for 2007.

    "These gifts are so ridiculously stupid that everyone will want them," said Stupid.com's founder Gary Apple in a statement.

    Here is stupid.com's top 10 which is not endorsed by Reuters:

    Funny, DK!

    My personal fave - the Hillary Nutcracker (did Bill design this based on personal experience?).

    I just want to know one thing. Can you put the bacon candy in the Poo-lar Bear? Yuh-mee!

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    I've never heard of half of those gifts! I'd like to see that screaming monkey though.

    I worked with a guy that would probably LOVE the portable mistletoe. He used to bring in the plastic kind and put it on his stomach.
