WHO invents this stuff?

The Mom's birthday is coming up later this week and I've spent a good amount of time trying to decide what to get for her. A French beret? SO study abroad 2001! Maybe some French pottery? SO Christmas 2003! What do you do when you're already purchased a country's finest cheesy traditional gifts?

I decided to take my search to the Internet, which is sometimes the best way of shopping because:
1. You don't have to take the metro
2. You can do it while sitting in your pajamas and eating fresh-from-the-oven pumpkin pie.

And because my Mom is having a little trouble with the idea that all three of her offspring may be out of the country next year, I did a couple of funny searches to see what would come up. And here comes the lunacy.

Maybe we could buy three pairs so she could snuggle up to them at night. Six specially-weighted creepy hands to remind her of her offspring.

Or maybe I could just send flowers.

it's extra funny if you compare your mother to a sleeping infant.
