    Gag Gifts for Guys

    My friend Steve and I have been exchanging the same dumb gifts for 15 years. The first was a jar of tartar sauce. It went back and forth a few times before we moved on to trading a Belinda Carlisle CD. That also lasted several years, but more recently we’ve been re-gifting an Albino Bowler Action Figure. (Yeah, such a product actually exists, and I’m sure to get it back for my birthday in January.) Why? Why send the same gift back and forth to each other, and why these gifts? The answer is part “You had to be there”—inside jokes are a mainstay of dude relationships—and the rest is the ongoing mystery of how guys relate to each other.
