Husband wants a rusty trombone for his birthday

Date: 2009-04-27

My husband has asked for a rusty trombone for his birthday, which is Wednesday.

I've scoured the pawn shops and music stores, and I haven't found one. I am guessing that rusty ones will be cheaper than new ones, and I don't know what the big deal is, but it's what he wants and he is very specific about it.

I could have bought a dozen new ones at this point, but he says that a rusty trombone is nostalgic for him, so I suppose it will mean more.

If you selling (or even giving away) a rusty trombone, please let me know what you have, how much it costs and how I can get it (will you deliver it, or will I have to go to you?).

Also, suggestions on how to wrap such a thing?

Please help, I am down to the wire on this thing and I don't like being this late with a gift!!!

News Story Of The Day: Hideous Man-Beast Discovered At Pool

From The Onion and The Artist Formerly Known As MOFM.


SEWARD, NE—Responding to complaints about an awful stench, local lifeguard Matt Frieze, 26, discovered what appeared to be the bloated body of a repulsive man-beast that had mysteriously washed up on the shore of the Dowding Municipal Pool Monday.

Frieze, who found the unidentified monstrosity sprawled out on the concrete at approximately 2:30 p.m., said he attempted to inspect the bizarre creature but was repelled by the sight of the putrid mass of flesh and hair.

"I've never seen anything like it before," said Frieze, adding that he first assumed it was just a pile of rotting sewage until he noticed its lower extremities were partially covered by what appeared to be a denim garment.

"It looked like some kind of decomposing manatee with these horrible teeth and a face like…."

"Oh my God, I think I'm going to be sick," Frieze added.

While Frieze said he was surprised by how soft and squishy the behemoth was when he prodded it with a pool skimmer, he admitted that he was far more startled when the man-beast briefly stirred and produced a low, mournful gurgle.

Immediately urging the crowd of curious onlookers to keep its distance, Frieze stood guard over the foul mistake of nature for some time, but the beast did not move again.

Classic Malt Liquor Commercials Of The Day (video)

Lots of familiar faces in these.

From Cajun Willie, who's had a malt liquor or three, I bet.

Someone on YouTube said the woman in this video is Evelyn "Champagne" King, who had some hits in the 70s including "Shame."

And one regular old beer commercial:

Tommy Lee
Nice training 'stache. Give it another year.

James Hetfield
He got two funerals, prom and a senior portrait out of that suit. Not bad for $29.99.

With that afro and polyester, Slash was voted "most likely to become Larry, from Three's Company."

Jon Bon Jovi
OK. Not really. It's Jo from "The Facts of Life"

Axl Rose
Nice chili bowl, Peppermint Patty.

Once I chose today's Product Of The Day, I knew I needed to see it in action. Here are the most helpful and informative 45 seconds of the full video (2:05 to 2:50 -- it should stop and start at those times automatically, but Splicd doesn't seem to be working properly this morning).

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to be alone for a minute. Well -- for 45 seconds, anyway.
