This gizmo connects to your phone (better if it's someone elses) and randomly calls a phone number when the user tries to call out. Don't worry, 911 calls will always call out correctly and in fact, about 25% of all the other attempts make it out as dialed - just enough to get the victim to continue.

Businesses that can incorporate a variety of lighthearted, inexpensive gifts into their repertoire are sure to survive an economy where consumers avoid high-ticket items.
