Bush Found Wanting

Share Article

Listideas.com, the biggest and best of a new generation of social shopping sites where people create and share their wish lists, has been inundated with spoof celebrity users this Christmas, including one from a certain George W Bush!

The spoof gift lists - assuming they are spoof lists - have been so popular that the people at http://www.listideas.com have decided to encourage them.

"Most online enterprises are seeking the ideal Christmas viral at this time of year," said Gordon Lott, founder of List Ideas. "We've been lucky. Our users have been busy generating their own funny stuff and the nature of our site - where people share their wishlists - is viral anyway. All we've done is given President Bush's gift list a helping hand."    

A wish list pertaining to be that of one George W Bush from Washington DC was the most popular list on the site (more popular than Tony and Cherie Blair's, more popular than Madonna's even) so the wonks at Listideas came up with some nice visuals to accompany it and sent it to their registered user database. The results were astounding.

Amongst other things, the President of the United States of America wants Nintendo Brain Training, A coloring In Book (to start the inevitable autobiography), a lie detector test and the board game, Risk (world domination, no exit strategies required).

List Ideas (http://www.listideas.com), is the new social shopping site which means you'll never receive an unwanted gift again. It was set up to make life easier, by putting together a list of ideas online, so friends and family know what to get each other for Birthdays, Christmas or indeed any other special occasion. Unlike say, the wish list at Amazon, the List Ideas wish list operates across ALL sites. It's totally free to use.
