Ngoc Luan Ho Trieu with a secret santa gift that was given to him as a mean-spirited prank.

Two years later and he is still sad? I think that his interpretation of the gift may be a cultural misunderstanding. Australians would give some one a pooing reindeer because they would find it very funny, not necessarily to make the point that someone’s work is poo.

Look at these delicious treats that can all be purchased here in New Zealand. We have a similar sense of humor to the Australians I think.

For more details of this story see Crybaby of the week at 10:30am.

Have you ever been upset by a secret santa gift that you thought was mean spirited?

Can you figure it out tonight?
