I got my husband the licensed Thor's Hammer bottle opener for his birthday. And only PARTLY so I could refer to it all the time as "myeah-myeah" like the girl in the movie.

As far as barbecue sauces go, I have this weird tradition with getting the strangest ones I can find for my father-in-law at all the little tourists traps around Florida. I got him one as a gag that had a mildly obscene/gross name and a funny bottle our first Christmas together, and he laughed so hard he almost cried, and each one I get him he washes out and displays on his desk. He's the type of guy whose favourite t-shirt is a picture of a cowboy dog saying "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw" and looks like Charlie Chaplin. He's awesome.
