We did a classic stitch up to a mate when he got married. The whole mess agreed that we would all buy the cheapest, crappiest Â£3.99 toaster from Argos.

We put the receipts in so he could get the cash back. Apparantly Argos would not exchange 40 odd toasters at one store so he ended up driving to every Argos in the South East trying to get rid of them.
We also got them one of those red letter day experience vouchers, so we aren't complete cnuts.
