The Christ­mas hol­i­day saw the con­tin­u­a­tion of the lov­ing gift exchange between me and my younger brother, Dale.

Over the years, we have exchanged taxi­dermy frogs, poo-themed gifts, con­crete nose-picking trolls, bowls of coal, straight jack­ets and human-figure knife hold­ers. This year, I lamely returned the bowl of coal Dale sent a few years ago, prompt­ing him to ask if I had given up or if this meant he was sup­posed to return the coal to me again next year.

Dale’s gift had me in tears. Here it is…

Yes, that’s what you think it is. A horse head, as in The God­fa­ther.

This gift got a lot of mileage. Aside from mak­ing my sides hurt from laugh­ing, I got to sneak it into my brother-in-law’s bed over the Christ­mas hol­i­day. Some­how, he knew who did it.

Dale wins…this year. But I haven’t thrown in the towel. Just wait, lit­tle bro.

Love,

Your Sis

P.S. A num­ber of peo­ple have asked where my brother got the horse head. It’s avail­able sev­eral places on the inter­net, includ­ing here.
