NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’ve been a bad little boy or girl, you may find something messier than a lump of coal in your Christmas stocking this year – like a load of animal dung?

That’s just one of the horrible Christmas presents submitted to the American Express company, which conducts a contest each year to find the most outrageous Christmas gifts ever given.

So far, some of the entries received include a bucket of horse manure, a piece of fossilized fecal matter and bookends made of elephant droppings.

Other crummy Christmas gift entries include: earrings made of squirrel feet, octopus-flavored jerky, an inflatable porta-potty, a back-scratcher made from a turkey foot, and a something called “knitted testicles-warmer” – don’t ask.

The winner of the Most Outrageous Gift Contest will receive $250 in American Express Gift Cheques, which the company claims make a much better gift than any of the items submitted so far.

You can still enter the Most Outrageous Gift contest by mailing a 25-word description of your most outrageous gift to: 175 Fifth Avenue, Suite #2421, New York, NY; 10010.
