All the usual stuff was in sight. Key chain with attached police whistle at the Far Out Unlimited Wholesale Company. Kid's T-shirt that read:
"MOM AND DAD WENT TO SEATTLE AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY T-SHIRT."
Bendie Doggies, of course. The switch-blade comb. 24,000 Elvis posters, all sold. And the fluffy singing German teddy bear which, when its abdomen was compressed, emitted:
"Ich bin ein kleine teddy baer, boom, boom, boom.
"Und alle kinder mag ich sehr, boom, boom, boom..."
We enjoy the shopping on Kauai, too, especially for whimsical T-shirts for friends back home. One is labeled:
"Grandma and Grandpa went to Hawaii and all they brought me is this lousy T-shirt"
We didn't buy that one.
Merchandise ranges from expensive sound systems used by square-dance callers to children's T-shirts that read, "Grandma went to the nat'l square dance and all I got was a lousy T-shirt."
You could explore the island. Most tourists enjoy visiting the captal, Spritzer & Fuhrmann, where they find such native artifacts as life-size Lalique elephants. In town, you might track down the island's chief native export. Coral beads? Straw baskets? Pottery? No. It's a T-shirt reading, "My parents went to the Caribbean and all I got was this lousy T-shirt."
