Well, this Star Trek Kirk & Spock Salt & Pepper Shaker Set looks very nice and would make a great housewarming present for the Star Trek fan. From the product description:
We can’t help but think the Salt Vampire, or creature, from “The Man Trap” would be drooling at these, or at least at one of these officially licensed ceramic Star Trek salt and pepper shakers. Featuring the likenesses of Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and James Kirk (William Shatner) in classic Trek uniforms, you can keep this command team on your dining room table. Each shaker measures approximately 4.5″ tall X 1.5″ wide X 1″ deep.
But which one is salt and which one is pepper? I suspect these things matter to the average Trekkie. Or so I’m told.

Bowling and cheese go together like… well, I have no idea. Maybe cheese as in on a pizza? And pizza and beer go together, and beer and bowling go together? No, while all true that might be a stretch… Maybe because bowling is cheesy? No, bowling was never really exploited to the point where it could be cheesy. (Now if they started wearing matching sequined uniforms…) Bowling is just, bowling. Aha! I got it. Bowling is for everybody, just like everybody loves cheese. And beer. And pizza. Whatever, just go with it.
Whatever the connection is between bowling and cheese, it doesn’t matter as bowling-fans and cheese-lovers alike can enjoy this Spare Me Bowling Ball Cheese Spreader Set in Gift Box. Featuring four bowling pin cheese spreaders that rest inside a ceramic bowling ball, the novelty contraption will come in handy for all your bowling and cheese needs–whatever those may be.

Cookie Monster has always known what’s up with the letter ‘C’. Smart cookie, that Cookie. Not only does his favorite treat start with ‘C’, so does his lesser-known other favorite treat: coffee! (It’s pretty obvious if you notice what a spazz he is.) Being the obsessive type, there is no other mug everybody’s favorite monster would choose other than one picturing himself. The Sesame Street Cookie Monster 18-Ounce Ceramic Mug is his only drinking vessel of choice. For either milk or coffee. Got cookie? Om nom nom nom…

Perhaps more so than any other game, tic-tac-toe ends up as a draw. However, when using the Tic-Tac-Toe Plate don’t expect snacks to go unfinished. Featuring square and circle one-ounce indentations (the circles won) the ceramic platter makes for a unique serving device—or at least one where everybody can end up a winner.

I like these, if only because of the fact they don’t bug me. I better explain that: the salt is where the salt should be and the pepper is where the pepper should be. In other words, somebody was paying attention. If forced to choose which spice would dress up as which condiment, I’d have to go with salt/ketchup and mustard/pepper, just like these salt and pepper shakers.
The Tag Earthenware Ketchup and Mustard Salt and Pepper Shakers gets it right. Mustard can carry a bit of heat just like pepper can, and salt, well, as king of the spices it seems right at home masquerading as king of the condiments. Of course, the designer could have just guessed—they did have a 50/50 chance to get it right after all. And then again, the ketchup does kinda look like a bottle of hotsauce…

Garlic is a finicky thing. Some may say that even a little is too much, while others say that there can be no such thing as too much of good thing. Whether you like, love or hate garlic, its pungency isn’t the only aspect that requires a little attention: Where the heck are you supposed to store the stuff?
In the cupboard? In the fridge? On the counter? In a hanging basket with other fruits and vegetables, shedding garlic paper and imparting its essence to everything it touches?
