image for Useless Gifts 7 : The Electric Chair

That's right; you can buy an electric chair. And at only just above £800, no less! What better way to tell someone you hate them and want them to die than by getting them their own fully-operational electric chair?

The website for this chair reads, "It's not a model or toy, mind you... This is a real piece of furniture carefully built by some very skilled (and very strange) craftsmen. You and your friends can actually strap yourself into your very own electric chair and pretend you're in the "big house," chugging down 60,000 volts. (You can also just sit in it and read, but what fun is that?)" How this man isn't in some CIA database at this point is beyond me. Anyone searching for, "I want a REAL electric chair" on the internet should probably be locked in something indestructible and coated with fire.

I also like how all of my friends and I can pretend we're in the "big house chugging down 60,000 volts." Good times, right there. "Hey! Check me out! I'm a serial rapist and murderer getting his comeuppance! YEAH!!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
