Things NOT on the birthday list

Seriously? Are there really people in this world who are living unfulfilled lives because they can't "cast off anytime, anywhere." Don't you still need a body of water?

In spite of it being a "handsome fishing rod that collapses to the size of a standard ball-point pen (8") to easily fit in a pocket, backpack, glove box, or briefcase -AND- the fact that it makes the "write" gift for anglers, outdoorsmen and campers, I just don't think I'll be rushing to make my one easy payment of $19.95.

But wait! There's more... it does come with a starter tackle set (3 hooks, bobber, 3 weights), a telescoping alloy rod (38 1/2" long when fully extended), a brass-finished reel, 50 feet of 2-pound fishing line (to catch the REALLY big fish), and a practice casting weight.

Somehow, I still don't think Ben is going to want this more than a nice new pair of underwear or a package of new white tube socks.
