Need a real unique, and shall we say warm, Christmas gift that no one would ever think they're going to receive?

How about a workshop on fire eating? Just make sure the teacher has sense enough to get some precautionary measures in place and maybe notifies authorities that the class in progress.

A former church near Pittsburgh was the venue for a group of about 25 people learning to perform the circus trick of fire eating. Neighbors could see flames inside so they called 9-1-1. Everything was under control, but the classroom didn't have running water or fire extinguishers, so there might be a citation or two.

I can't stand burning my tongue on hot coffee, so I think I'll pass on this one.  DB
