A friend of mine got a hair piece before he went on vacation, so I bought him a comb as a parting gift.

Beware of geeks bearing gifts.

I was invited to a house warming party for my friends, so I bought them a propane heater.

    Yeah, there aren’t enough diamonds in the world to make up for a mop. Unless the mop came with a maid, in which case you’re golden. πŸ˜‰
