david said...

hi, im david from israel
and as a birthday gift i would get the skull some new skin ( face, that is)... unless i find some really groovy old skin in one of those groovy 2nd hand stores.
and if i get those spiffy skull cufflinks, i might let it wear it on it's special day

Tatman said...

I'd get a skull a shirt that said, "100% Bonehead". I know it wouldn't be able to wear it, but it would be a great gag.

Lapo said...

I'm torn between a complete skeleton (for those days he feels like a Bonehead t-shirt) or a toboggan.

These cufflinks are wicked--love them! Email: enoreelapo@gmail.com

I would definitely get the skull some eyes so it could see then killer cufflinks it helped me win.

Dennis said...

i guess i would find him or her a brain. i'd certainly miss my brain if i were dead long enough to decompose completely to my bones, i am sure they would too.

A skullcap

Peter said...

Skull polish. Maybe a nice waxing compound.

jen and grant said...

a pass to the natural history museum so he could see all his friends

Germasidle said...

Justin, that was just plain silly (to above post)...

Hi I'm Shelley, and I would make a pillow of the skull's favorite fabric and color for the skull to rest upon each night in comfort.

I'm pretty sure our Germasidle blogger has our email, if not here's a coupla ways to reach me ;)

I think I might get him a really nice sweater, something bright and colorful with a kitten on it, or maybe clowns and rainbows. No flesh must mean he's chilly, and the upbeat patterns might extend that skullish grin into a smile.

On the other hand, I might get him a bowling ball. That way I can keep it when he realizes he can't use it.

A Sweatband

Guy Fawkes said...

a body... i would get a skull a body. bodies are useful specially for transportation.

Ashtaroth said...

An eye patch!

Stephanie said...

A skull probably needs a platform with some robotic legs so he can get around...since I can't afford that, I'd just give him a hug.

keith said...

8601 pave-laid diamonds.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

The place of honor at a kickin' Day of the Dead Fiesta, where he might meet a lovely lady skull....:)

Alex said...

I´d give it the skull a day book, so it could be amazed.

You´re welcome Skull Master.

Felix said...

A dead pony.

Some x-ray specs.

A life-size poster of Gillian Anderson.

biddypunk said...

I would get my skull a gem-encrusted box to live in. It would keep the dust off and maintain a bit of mystery so inherent in the appeal of the simulacra.

Jess said...

i would get him or her a hat; depending on when their birthday was and the climate; maybe a fez or a touk

LunaChick said...

I would get a skull some polishing wax so it can get a good shine.

Rai said...

putty to fill in the cracks

alumiere said...

i'd send him a framed copy of the glowing write up of his performance in Hamlet, complete with photos

Sierra said...

I'd give it a birthday suit, I think a skull might like a body again.

MrsP said...

I would give my skull the board game Cranium, Dr Kawashima's Brain Training and a Terry's Chocolate Orange. Everybody likes chocolate.

Kyle said...

I would get a skull a nice jar to display itself in for it's birthday, along with a plaque that has its name, and a table to put itself on.

Amanda said...

I would get it a "skullpture"

Eric said...

I would get him a mobile BONE so he can call all his friends

Diane said...

Definitely a top hat!

RAKotkowski said...

Skull polish...of course! (found at your local skullery) When I win, send a link (or set) to rakotkowski@aim.com! HA!

Eric Syre said...

I'd give a skull a good coating of laquer or polymer so it stays whiter and cleaner for a while. Maybe it would do better with an poxy-based coating?

greezus chrust said...

I'd get my skull a fancy hat to start out with, and eventually give him/her a proper body... dress it up proper!

Hardcore Watch Company said...

Tessa said...

id get him some cheese to fill the cracks and a black candle to light his memories on fire. xx

Peter said...

I would find him a lovely skeleton of a squirrel monkey named Jenkins with whom the skull could be friends/lovers with, after which it would be a terrible tragedy to separate the two, and thus together they could live their (after)lives upon the dusty shelf of a well-to-do gentleman.

Amstrad said...

A nice painting up done like those lucky skulls in the Hallstatt Charnel House.

Hiro C. said...

I would offer him a dog... ahhh wait... not sure after all.

cristina said...

a fluffy cushion to lay that bony behind on

Rocketboy said...

If it was a boy skull, I'd get a girl skull. If it was a girl skull, I'd get it a boy skull.

gooseling said...

I would give it some hats, it's getting cold out.

javier bonnefont said...

easy. a helmet

Nikoli said...

I think perhaps a photo shoot. So he/she could be shared with the world via the interwebby. And of course a party hat.

Scotty said...

I'd give the skull some good heavy music, the kind with bone rattling bass lines, and guitar riffs that resonate through the cerebellum... I think he'd like that.

Pamela said...

A top hat.

cg said...

I think that I would give the skull some good bone polish. So that he could look his best while out looking for fun.

The Undesirable said...

I would get a skull a brain that way it could speak, and we could make prank calls.

Hiro C. said...

A "flesh" tatoo

Anna said...

I would get the skull another skull to cuddle with!!

highonfumes said...

i would buy a skull a fancy new display case. maybe something with wrought iron and red velvet lining. everyone likes to feel pretty right?

Mr. Blanchard said...

I would give a skull a leather bound journal and an ornate silver fountain pen so that it could share it's story with us. the first chapter would have to be the shortest, a brief background of the person to whom the skull originally belonged. chapter two would be about the birth the skull itself, how it emerged from the skin that it had worn, the excitement the skull must have felt the first time if felt the air on it's bone instead of the wind in it's hair. i would want chapter 3 to be about how skulls interact with each other, what prejudices must be removed when one's gender and race aren't the first thing you see. then a few pages of abstract drawings. yes, that's what i would get a skull for it's birthday.

The rest of his skeleton, of course.

jacqueline said...

I would get a skull a sweet mohawk to stick on it's gleaming dome. I mean, who doesn't like a mohawk?

Georgie said...

I would get a skull a really cool hat - a fabulous silk top hat with a black rose : )

Lady said...

I'd give a skull a wig. I think it may miss hair, once in a while.

Beyond the Wall of Sleep said...

Oh, definitely a worm to live in its eye socket and whisper it secrets in the dark.

Gustavo Adolfo said...

Hello I am Gustavo from Colombia
I would get a skull an adamantium-plate. It may look like one of these cufflinks, and also would be indestructible!!

Couchgirl13 said...

I would get a skull a photo shoot and debute on Skulladay! What more could a skull want?? Of course I'd give it the star treatment with some skull buffing and such, a fantastic wardrobe made up of hats and glasses, and the Skulladay book to read inbetween setting up shots. Heaven for a skull I tell ya.
