Boob Job Piggy Bank Makes a Great Gift Idea. . . If You're an Idiot

A recent post in Contexts magazine reveals one of the signs of the Apocalypse: A boob job money jar you can purchase on a website. For girls.

That's right. You can teach your young daughters fiscal responsibility and artificial self-esteem by getting them this money jar.

Or if you're not comfortable with this as a gift for your daughter, get it for one of your female coworkers. Have a good chuckle at the look on her face when she opens her gift. Enjoy a good laugh just before she slaps your face. Have a hearty guffaw as you're fired and hit with a sexual harassment lawsuit.

If you're not convinced the site is aimed toward girls -- and not a gag gift website -- check out this image from the front page.

("Hot Science Teacher?!" Yeah, right.)

Frankly, this is a horrible gift for a young girl, whether it's given in irony or she chose it. Some of the comments on the Contexts page said this was more of an ironic/gag gift, rather than a serious one. Even if this won the Most Ironic Gift for 2008, what kind of creepy parent gets this for their kid?

Bottom line is this: if you get this for a female co-worker or your daughter, you get what you deserve: lawsuits or children with emotional issues.
