My Son’s Millennium Falcon Lego Set
It’ll teach him that all your hard work can be wiped away in an instant, kind of like how I was hit away from winning a boss fight when it killed me with a bullshit unblockable attack.
My $600 Smartphone Because I Threw My Wife’s Last Time
Hers exploded real good. Hoo boy, was it satisfying. Plastic over here, microchips over there. I swear, I saw an app icon fly out like it was the satellite dish atop my son’s Lego Millennium Falcon.

The Sonogram Image Of My Future Daughter That My Wife Was About To Show Me
Thanks, Doc, but the pictures I’ll take after she’s born will be way better than that military radar image of a terrorist compound you’re trying to pass off as my daughter — who, I should add, will herself be thrown eventually.
My Framed Anger Management Certificate Of Completion
Boy, did that baby fly.
