I gave this to my boss because she was constantly being pestered by everyone with all sorts of questions about when this would be done, why isn't that done, etc. (She was very efficient and the folks bugging her about stuff had serious time management issues of their own.) My boss was very brazen about using it. When someone would come in that was a constant source of problems, she would simply hand this to him/her and say, "pick one." The person would turn it over, read the excuse and crack up laughing. This actually turned out to be an "ice breaker" of sorts: it allowed my boss to tell folks they were being unreasonable with their expectations, yet without insulting them or getting into a rather uncomfortable discussion.

If you have the co-worker who has used every excuse in the book this is the toy for you. My fellow worker bees would throw money in the pot, if the excuse making co-workers sorry excuse of the day matched the excuse ball, we would buy treats for the group. Of course we had much fun with this. Throw the sarcastic ball in the mix and we laughed until lunch.

I have it on my desk at school. I am a math teacher. The kids enjoy it but many of the excuses are really more for the corporate world. "What memo?" makes the kids say "Huh?" but some are classics and I am still not sure if the Spanish one is funny - I am not good at languages but I am pretty sure it does not say what it is meant to say. But there are about 20 excuses and most are clever and funny. I mean, if I ask a kid why he does not have his homework and he shakes the excuse ball and says "Kryptonite" ... you have to laugh.

It is basically a cheaper version of the magic 8 ball. It is a little hard to read and is difficult to get the little diamond inside to lay flat you really have to mess with it to get a saying to show up. But it works fine if you just want to give a cheap gag gift to someone.

The words are too small and the liquid inside the ball is too dark....making it too hard to read and not fun. The speedy shipping was great.

This was a gift for someone else. It's a funny little gag gift, but it was kind of hard to get the excuse die to show in the blue liquid window. But the gift receiver seemed to like it and that's all that matters.

Bought as a white elephant gift exchange at work. Needless to say, this beat out all the other lame gifts. The one con is that it doesn't "show" an option each you shake it. It can get stuck semi-often which I remember happening with the normal magic 8 balls. So it must be something in the design. Great product nonetheless.
