For my brother's Christmas gift I am putting together a package so he can survive those first few dating experiences.

Any ideas?

So far it will be titled with...

"All boys are after only one thing....
...surviving meeting their girl's father."

He has several pocket knives. I'm going to give him a sharpening stone.

Perhaps a fake book cover called, "Beginners Guide to Gelding" so that when he boy comes to pick up my niece, he can sit by the fire, sharpening his knife, and just leave the book there for the boy to see.

I have a questionaire for him to pass out to the boys--"Name, Address, Burial Preference, If you suddenly disappeared-who if anyone would come looking for you.."

But I need a couple more solid things to put in the kit.

Ideas anyone?

I can't believe no one has mentioned a shotgun.

I would recommend a print or T-Shirst of the xkcd comic "Frustration," if it were available.

Edit: DANG! Beaten!

"Happiness Is a Warm Gun" from the White Album.


But seriously. A cyanide capsule. For whoever, whenever...

That is a great one! And here is the comic so that you don't have to search for it: Frustration. [Smile]

I think there should actually be a guide for parents entitled 'how not to be a complete schmuck and weirdo when your kid starts dating'

How about a watch for his daughter?

"You're thirty seconds, late. That's why we synchronized before you left."

Am I really as braindead as I feel, or wasn't this thread posted a month or two ago with very similar results?

How about a guardian angel?
"If you're late, I'm coming after you."
"If you speed, you won't be dating again."
Many to choose from.

Or maybe the neighborhood watch?
Again, LOTS of choices.

My dad would give my sisters a quarter and say, "if this yahoo tries anything, use this quarter to call me." Then he would turn to the guy and say, "if she spends that quarter, you will disappear."

On a more realistic note: Condoms, pregnancy-test kit, STD horror-propaganda materials.
