If there is any one item in this year's Gift Guide that expresses
the fun and festive spirit of the holiday season, it is this
disposable body stapler kit.
This is designed for the hunter or other outdoorsperson who is
out in the wilderness when he develops a serious cut or laceration
from being gored by an irate deer, or being accidentally shot by
another outdoorsperson who has mistaken him for game, or stabbing
himself while attempting to open a can of beans with a hunting knife
the size of a harpoon.
If anything like this happens to the lucky outdoorsperson on your
holiday gift list, all he has to do is take out his or her Body
Stapler Kit, staple his or her wound closed, scream, pass out on the
ground and be eaten by snakes. At least that's what we would do.
As a bonus, this kit, according to the Cabela's catalog, is
''great for treating cuts on your dog as well.'' We bet it is! Here,
The Body Stapler Kit comes with a staple remover and a ''handy
carrying pouch.'' Interestingly, it does NOT come (at least the one
we got didn't) with instructions. But our feeling is, if you need
instructions to staple your wounds closed, you were not much of an
outdoorsperson to begin with.
So this holiday season, give the gift that expresses the
following sentiment: ''AIIEEEEEEEE.'' Give the Body Stapler Kit.
