Weird Presents Throughout the Years

In the News

People over the years have given some strange presents. No doubt we have all recieved a few in our time.I was surprised to read that Victorians used to give people mummy souvenirs.

Father Géramb, a monk once quipped, "It would be hardly respectable, on one’s return from Egypt, to present oneself without a mummy in one hand and a crocodile in the other."
