Our church’s white elephant gift exchange party is good for what ails you, if it’s true that laughter is a cure-all. But our white elephant gift exchange party has been one-upped in zaniness, according to this account by Gordon Atkinson, aka Real Live Preacher. White Elephant Nightmare (If my young friend Corrie had a twin who was a middle-aged man, I would believe that it was this person.) If you get to the end (I realize time is limited this time of year) do check the ebay listing and the questions and answers.
(If the formatting of the single entry link makes horizontal scrolling necessary, you can find the White Elephant Nightmare about 3/4 of the page down at Real Live Preacher’s homepage: http://www.reallivepreacher.com/ )
