Guess what Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s ‘little guy asked for his 4th birthday’

Be honest. A Simplehuman trash can wasn’t your first guess, was it?


But don’t leave us hanging. The Twitterverse wants answers!

  • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

    To clean up the trash on the View.

    • The Penguin

      That would require a dumpster.

      • arttie

        Industrial size trash compactor.

        • Jim

          On the detention level

          • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

            ISWYDT. If there was a slow clap function on Twitchy, I would SO be using it here.

        • Booker

          Wood chipper.

      • Cyborg3K

        And a forklift.


        That was funny especially when you consider that Whoopi’s f@t arse wouldn’t fit in a dumpster either !!!!! I am glad Elisabeth Hasselbeck is off that show & I heard she is going to FOX NEWS, that would be great, she would be an asset for sure !!!!!!

      • Travis Wolfeil

        No, actually a landfill! 😉

    • Johnny Right

      How cute! He asked for a likeness of Joy Behar.

      • TugboatPhil

        Joy hasn’t been that size since Whoopi was a woman.

  • Bruce Musto

    Totally understand. At his age was fascinated by those. Step on the pedal and the top opens up.

  • j p

    Have a son who asked for coat hangers one Christmas.

  • Keith

    Mom must have read him obamacare so the lil guy needed a proper place to put it.

  • FFlintstone

    This is Twichy worthy? It’s doc dump day. There should be lots going on.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Later, probably after 5.

    • nc

      We have diverse interests here.

      Stick around, there might be recipe sharing later : )

      • Zane Henry

        I’d be all for that! No joke.

        • trixiewoobeans


  • ceemack

    You guys seriously fail to understand the utter awesomeness of being able to step on that pedal and have the top just open right up. Weren’t you ever four-year-old boys?

    • Rob

      I STILL think they are amazing!

    • SkyePuppy

      Hours of endless entertainment.

    • PumpedUpKix

      I have one that opens with the wave of a hand. Chicks dig it. :-)

  • GaryTheBrave

    Isn’t the new Apple computer in a similar shape?

  • FaithColeridge33

    One Christmas we bought our four year old a few awesome gifts. Or what we thought were awesome gifts. Spent way to much. My mother was a bit disgusted. So unbeknownst to us, until it was unwrapped, she found the biggest box she could find, wrapped it with bright paper and lots of ribbons, put in string, rubber bands, band-aids, packing peanuts, a few strips of bubble wrap, and a couple of old Tupperware containers.


    • Thale Taxurfeet


  • World B. Free

    Best trash can EVAH. Pricey though.

    • MarcusFenix

      But they’re soooooooo good. We have one here at the house, it’s freakin’ amazing. We were given a housewarming gift here by the other half’s parents, and it was the butterfly design with the motion sensor. I’ve never loved a trash can that much!!!!

    • Kate

      It really is the best! I got one because my pets can’t knock it over or climb inside.

  • nc

    The old joke about little kids ignoring the pricey toy to play with the big empty box is so true. When my guy was little, I tied a scrap of old fabric around his neck (that he could slip on and off by himself) so he could turn himself into a superhero whenever he wanted. He loved that old rag for years.

  • Lotte Lenya

    Reading the tease I thought for sure it was a gun. A toy gun.

  • rivers

    One of our little guys asked for a spatula for his fourth birthday. His older brother’s first toy of his own choosing was a broom.

    • Marjorie

      I wanted a broom for my fifth birthday…still flying it today :)

    • mbs235

      My little guy cried when I refused to buy him some old dental tools at the fair one year (they were sharp!). I probably squelched his true calling as a dentist.

      • TugboatPhil

        One Christmas in the early 60s, I was given a tool kit by a friend of my Dad. I was about 5 or 6. These were not “kid-safe”, plastic tools. This was a metal box with small, but real, hammer, saw, square, crescent wrench and a pry bar. I was in heaven for about an hour.

        Somehow that tool kit disappeared and I saw it again when I was about 12. That was also when chemistry sets for kids had actual chemicals, capable of some really “interesting” experiments. I never saw one of those except for friends who had them.

  • Wag_a_Muffin (D)

    We did a “white elephant” gift one Christmas. I bought kid-aged toys and grown-up aged gifts and the idea was that you could “trade” until you got one you liked. Our 4 (at the time) year old grandson opened a mag-light high quality flash light combination and fell in love with it. He wouldn’t trade for anything.

  • TJ

    Shinny Robot more so if the lid slowly goes down. Some guys like things that are shinny and mechanical even at age 4.

    • Arkuy The Great

      What do you mean “even at age 4”? That is when the curiosity of how things work really starts kicking in. Hopefully, it never goes away!

  • Jack Deth

    Cool birthday present!

    It’s shiny. It’s round. It’s cool to the touch. The lips flips up when the pedal is stepped on. And it makes a neat “thunk!” sound after coming down.

    What’s not to love for a four year old?

  • Sakemoto

    That child has a bright future. He’s obviously a pragmatist.

  • Randall Dunlap

    Wish I could find a toilet that does that.

  • Texan357

    “Guess what Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s ‘little guy asked for his 4th birthday’”

    That those awful people would just leave “Bronco Bama” alone?

  • LegalizeShemp

    I think he asked to encapsulate the Obama administration in one place.

  • Trudy Hill

    Does he want it for HIS bedroom?

  • Junie3

    I like stepping on the pedal and watching the lid pop up, I want one too.

  • Zane Henry

    Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Livin’ rent free in the heads of Twitchy Trolls.

  • Dragomance

    He got that on the day he was born.What’s the matter,upset that a 4-year old is less of a pig than you?

  • Rick Bowser

    Well, well, look who slithered out from under their Rock! What’s the matter? You and Nancy lee Grahn get bored with trashing the Palins?

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Joy Behar has kids? I pity them.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    His mother isn’t Joy Behar.

  • Dragomance

    No,you’re a pig because you posted an unsubstantiated claim about his mother on a page where her son was asking for a garbage can.You don’t understand words that have developed more than one meaning well,do you?

    Also,I’m gonna take a logical guess that unless you’re one of the few people who watch The View,you get all your hate towards Elizabeth Hasselbeck through sparse videos edited by other liberals.

  • MarcusFenix

    Well, the “pig” part wouldn’t be from disliking the woman..but calling her a “shrill nightmare” and a “shrew” certainly gets you there.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    No. You’re a pig because you obviously hate women. That’s sexism, Mikey.

  • Dragomance

    No,of course not.Calling her a shrew and a shrill nightmare is constructive criticism. /sarcasm

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General


  • redwhiteandtrue

    You absolutely have equal rights. All the rights afforded by marriage can be yours, as long as you get married. Of course, you would need to marry a woman, since that’s the only form of marriage in existence. Everything is totally equal for you! Hooray! You win!

  • trixiewoobeans

    You DO know that lawyers were behind the push for gay marriage, so they could richly benefit from the divorces. Yeah, equal rights can be a *itch.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    Gee. Seems to me there are ways for you to exercise your “equal rights” without having to twist the definition of marriage to create a sanction where none is given.

  • TugboatPhil

    Homosexuals are afraid of the opposite sex, so what’s the difference?

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    No. You ruined a woman’s life when your Mom found out how much of a failure you’ve become.

  • TugboatPhil

    You apparently do care to since you responded.

  • Nate Whilk

    I do know you by what you posted. And I wish I didn’t.

  • Michael Hampton

    You are so right. My wanting to get married is all about legal wrangling so that lawyers can make money. It has nothing to do with me wanting equal treatment or wanting to legalize the bond between me and my partner. How silly.

  • Michael Hampton

    You are right. I am totally afraid of women. I don’t have ANY female friends or relatives.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    Nah. Your mother, on the other hand, loves it.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    That would explain why you were so touchy about my comment about your mother, Skippy.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    You already have equal treatment under the law. There is no right to marry in this country.

  • trixiewoobeans

    I’m not talking about what YOU want, I’m talking about the impetus behind it all. Lots and lots of money to be made.

  • Michael Hampton

    According to the Supreme Court, there is.

  • Michael Hampton

    And I am telling you that lawyers and their salaries are not the reason that I worked tirelessly to put marriage equality into effect in this country.

  • trixiewoobeans

    You’re missing the point…AGAIN. Feel free, feel free, to someday pay Fat Lawyer’s Fees.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    No. You would rather create special rules for you to give the illusion your marriage is equal to a straight couple’s.

  • Michael Hampton

    Straight couples don’t? And Honey, I can get married in this country right now in 13 states. Not someday.

  • trixiewoobeans

    Do it! I don’t care! Gotta feed the beast!

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    Wow. Is that the best you can do, Mikey? No wonder your mom is ashamed of you.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    Which USSC ruling established a right to marry?
