All I got for my birthday was this t-shirt:
In case the image doesn't load at some point or is too small, here's what it says:
Two hours of broadband to ftp the Linux Package, 15 cents.
CDs to burn the files, $1.00.
The knowledge that nothing on your computer is from Microsoft, PRICELESS.
There are some operating systems that you don't need money to buy.
For everyone else, there's Windows.
Ironically, I'm now a Mac OS X snob, but the t-shirt still kicks arse. And no, I'm not one of those Microsoft haters without a cause - it's just a t-shirt.
(Actually I got more than the t-shirt, but I wanted to start the entry with "All I got was this t-shirt".)
