    So allot of people I know have been getting married or are getting married in the next few months. Looks at the registrations I've seen a few odd requests and a few that have made Me laugh. So what is the weirdest thing that you have seen on a registry or the strangest gift you asked for yourself?

    I read an article not too long ago about people putting shares of stock on their registry. That's pretty tacky.

    I give everyone one of these, but they never talk to me again. Wal-Mart didn't like it either.

    I've heard of folks who are going to buy a new home after the wedding considering wire instructions to a bank account... horrible... (thank goodness they didn't do it)...

    baby gifts can be funny... one friend wanted some type of a milking machine so the mom can pump milk in private and feed the baby with bottles... guess I'm just not ready to be a daddy... I had no clue what half the items in babies-R-Us were, let alone how to use them...

    Okay, so I am obviously the one getting married soon. So, besides those stupid mood lights that my fiancee registered for (please God, don't let anyone buy them) what else could be considered odd. Everything else on the registry is perfectly legitimate.

    Honestly grad yours was just the most recent one that I have been to. So it was just freshest in My mind. Most of the stuff on your list wasnt to bad, except the faux mink throw pillow and then the one that Thump pointed out made Me laugh

    My "favorite crap" that I got for my wedding included a Silver Plated thing that looks like something you'd keep a scroll in for our marriage certificate...

    You could barely see the glue on the Package from the giant "Clearance Special-99% Off" sticker that was on it."

    Also- stuff that people who don't really know you get you stuff that is well intended but pretty ridiculous... Such as, My Great Aunt, who lives in Montana got us this giant Candle holder thing with a Buffalo on it (That looked like a Native American type thing)... I guess it was a nice thought... but I live in OHIO, not decorate my house with Western Wild Game Land.

    My favorite thing was selected by my "Step Sister in Law" (For lack of a better term)... now you have to realize that my Step Brother and his wife are very religious... and also that I had only met her once in my life before this... (and my Father is pretty religious, so I guess she made an assumption) So she gets us this giant media pack entitled [something to the effect] "Marriage: Your New Journey with Jesus" And it had audio tapes and a VHS tape and some other literature in it... maybe a CD-ROM too. I think my step brother must have died laughing when she brought that in the door... so along with it was a board game called, "Sex, Booze, and Rock n' Roll" These having been my principal interests when I actually saw my Step Brother occasionally.... so I'll give him credit, but likely this concept didn't fit all that well either... at least theoretically.

    I went to college with a guy from Bucyrus. We asked him for a list of gifts they would be interested in. She named off about 8-10 things, he named one....bullets.

    We got him shot gun shells. They are still happily married some 12 years later...

    True story.
