Which did you get? iPod or Fruitcake?

iPod? or Fruitcake? Let the facts speak for themselves.

10 Reasons why iPods beat Fruitcakes as Holiday Gifts

  1. You can’t play your music on a fruitcake.
  2. Inserting earbuds into your fruitcake? Makes them all sticky and gooey.
  3. iPods come in many colors and flavors. Fruitcakes are…brown.
  4. You can’t play video games on a fruitcake. (Or a Zune.)
  5. Fruitcakes do not support smart playlists.
  6. You can’t really accessorize a fruitcake. Belkin doesn’t offer a “fruitcake” section in its online store.
  7. You can’t watch the latest episode of Battlestar on a fruitcake.
  8. Fruitcakes don’t fit into your pocket.
  9. Fruitcakes are unsuitable items to bring along with you to your workouts.
  10. iPods? No crumbs.
