Great Gift

Back in my college days I took a marketing class.  Our assignment was to develop a product and a plan how to market it.  Well, my product was Lump-O-Coal.  It would've been a lump of coal in a plastic wrapper with a card that could be hung on a peg in stores.  The front would read Lump-O-Coal For that rotten little kid. The back of the card would have a short tale about the supposed legend of Santa Claus leaving a lump of coal in the stockings of bad children who weren't particularly good--a practice somewhat forgotten in modern times.

Well, I note a few places online have come up with similar products.  You really can get that horrible nephew a lump of coal for Christmas. Yay!  Since I couldn't develop the product I am glad others have.
