Gag Gifts for a 60th Birthday

SO and I are going to a 60th birthday party for a long-time friend of hers and her sisters.

This guy is fun-loving and likes to party. I'm looking for ideas for gag gifts for this guy that celebrate this milestone birthday are somewhat unique.

Any ideas???

In addition to what was already mentioned, a really big magnifying glass, a giant remote. You could create a special certificate, such as "President of the Prune of the Month Club." If I think of anything else, I'll add it later.

Just thought of another thing. Go to the local restaurants and stores and get their senior discount cards. Present them in some sort of creative way.

She loved them!

I got on Walmart.com and went to the free sample section and sent Depends to different people. There are lots of free samples out there that you can send people.

Get a cane from the thrift store. Go to the dept store and buy a bicycle rearview mirror and a bike horn. Attach the mirror towards the bottom of the cane and the horn near the top...viola, A Dirty Old Man Cane, made for looking up ladies dresses.

My parents hosted a party in the backyard. On the pine tree they threw about 30 bras and put up a sign that said 'Here's to 60 big ones'........don't know if you had that in mind though!

Is he losing his hair? If he is...cut out a hairbrush shpae in wood with a jigsaw, sand it down and write on the back "Bald Man's Hairbrush" varnish it and glue a piece of felt to the other side.

Gosh, it's been so long since Shrek turned 60...:) and a lot of the ideas I inflicted on him are written above.
