This is a question Presents

What are you buying your loved ones this Christmas? We're looking for inspiration and reckon a big share-a-thon of ideas will help everyone buy better gifts this year.

BTW: If your family reads B3ta and you're worried about giving the game away then tell us what you bought last Christmas.

A small number of Yules ago....
....my current cockwash purchased me a 'lovely' giftbox set containing a pen and a selection of 5 Belgian chocolates.

Not an expensive present I'll grant you (as the still-attached £3.50 price tag attested), but bought with thought and loving care based on 2 considered truisms: 1. I occasionally write things down, and 2. I'm a fat bastard.

Bless. Cheap yet thoughtful, and easily the moral and heartfelt equal to the iPod I got her.

Or at least it would have been had the top heavy object of my random affections not eaten one of the sodding chocolates. Disregarding the pen (which incidentally I did), she spent £3 on me, then ate 20% of it. What a baggy old pair of cortinas de la carne de vaca, as they say in Spain.

I love her to bits really, but this year I'm just going to kick her in the fish mitten.

You get a click for the most eloquent prose I have ever read.
Cockwash = Delightful.
Well done.

In my case Orange Squash > Keyboard
but the effect is really much the same

Do we say that, now?
I think you might have wanted to say "el chocho de su madre" or maybe "la vaca chochona"

Yes you do say it, you know you do.
Babelfish reliably tells me that it means 'curtains of the cow meat' which is what I was attempting to get across.

Yours seems to suggest something to do with her mother's choco. I mean, I'd probably give it a go, but not at Christmas, it makes lunch very awkward.

That's the problem
We don't have cow curtains. We're much more sophisticated.

How about some other languages?
Rideaux en boeuf? Rundvlees gordijnen? Tende del manzo (a particular favourite), Rindfleischvorhänge?

Ah, I see our goat tossing friend still lacks comprehension. Her piss flaps, dear Aberracion. Her piss flaps.
