My mother had a cat who kept a dried and flat mouse under the fridge and would take it out to play with it. Definitely mummified and not at all noxious/runny etc.

This year we had "luxury" crackers and I got a yo yo so cheap I had to tie my own loop in it. It just had a flat piece of string...

The cheapest crackers I ever bought all had a plastic false moustache in them. Every one. One was a strange green moustache.

I have fond memories of the Christmas when my mother, grandmother, father and I had a box of 12 crackers and my father got the bracelet, hair-slide and ring while we had cards and miniature screw drivers and magic tricks. We made him wear it for the rest of the day.
