Gifts for Geeks, Part 6 - Dream of the Rarebit Fiend

Or, how to give yourself nightmares.

According to the web site, "DREAM OF THE RAREBIT FIEND was a comic strip published in American newspapers from 1904 to 1913. Each episode presented the dream of some poor soul who had the misfortune of partaking of  Welsh Rarebit (a melted cheese toast) before retiring, a decision that resulted in unusual and fantastic dreams. In the last panel, the dreaming victim awakened, vowing never to partake of  Rarebit before bedtime again."

I've never been acquainted with any opium smokers, but I'm just saying...

The perfect gift for the goth-oriented teen and/or comic aficionado in the family.

Thanks to Steph for the tip.
