Need a goofy/ironic variation on a "China" gift for our 20th anniversary

4 years ago, I posted this question
, about coming up with weird interpretations of "traditional" anniversary gifts, and y'all came up with some brilliant answers. I ended up going with the "periodic table" idea, which we continued through our 17th, 18th, and 19th anniversaries.
Our 20th anniversary is May 1, and now I need a twist on the theme of "China."

To recap the background of my previous question:
Hubby and I have had a tradition of goofing on "traditional" anniversary gifts; we compete to see who can come up with the most off-the-wall/sarcastic variation. Examples: For the first ("paper") anniversary, I wrote him a love letter on a roll of toilet paper. For the "flowers" anniversary, I got a beautifully wrapped, heavy gift that I opened to find 5-pound bags of wheat, corn, and rye flour. For the "ivory" anniversary, I carved a loving tribute into a bar of Ivory soap; for the 15th, "crystal," anniversary, I had a custom stained-glass piece made, with 15 tiny crystals embedded in the leading.
Now it's time for a twist on a "China" gift. I'm open to anything, and cost is not a major issue -- as long as whatever it is can be presented on May 1. Go nuts, MeFites!
