i do its where you take a bunch of crap you dont want and give it to someone else. and they give you their crap.
yup. ur smart.
I think its like a gag gift. The urban legend goes that someone gave an ugly white elephant to someone as a gag gift and it kept circulating. I could be totally wrong here, but I tried.
Btw, you could've phrased your question to make sure you don't "sound rude" to the masses, I didn't find it offensive, but I could imagine people who would.
A WHITE ELEPHANT IS SOMETHING YOU BUY FOR SOMEONE THINKING ITS VERY GOOD FOR THEM BUT IN FACT IS UTTERLY USELESS
THE MILLENIUM DOME IN LONDON WAS CALLED THE LABOUR PARTIES GREAT WHITE ELEPHANT
I CAN THINK OF A LOT OF PIGGING POLITICIANS WHO ARE GREAT WHITE BL***Y WHITE ELEPHANTS
here's the way it was explained to me
but that's "here"
.1) everyone brings a gift of the same value
.2) everyone gets a "number" when they come in
.3) the gifts go in the middle of the room
.4) whoever got #1 goes first and picks a gift and opens it
.5) whoever got #2 goes next and they can either pick another gift or "steal" the gift from #1
.a) if they pick another gift then #3 goes
.b) if they "steal" then #1 picks another gift
.c) and then #3 picks or steals
and so on until all the gifts have been taken
there are several variations to it like
> no direct "steal" backs
> if you took the gift back 3 times it's your's & no one else can "steal" it from you
there might be a wiki article or some other comprehensive list of how to play.
Give me the best answer!!!!
