The Lawyer's brother is graduating from medical school in two weeks, though, and as previously mentioned, I find his family hilarious. So, with this in mind, I explained to The Lawyer that the orchidometer would be a fabulous graduation gag gift.
For those of you who don't want to blind yourself with the visual on Wikipedia (consider yourselves warned!), an orchidometer is this necklace sort of thing with different sized "beads" that's used by endocrinologists to measure testicular size.

Anyway, The Lawyer's brother is going into family medicine, so I could totally rationalize my way out of this if The Lawyer's parents are appalled at the tasteless and inappropriate girlfriend who gives their youngest son dirty graduation gifts.
Where the heck do I find one of these things? Do medical supply stores have them? The only places I can find it are in China or the UK, and they're like, $90! I'm willing to be a little bit more generous for a good joke, but $90 is kind of steep.
The Lawyer has suggested both that I make an orhcidometer myself with craft supplies from Michael's (a regular comedian I'm dating) or that I buy some sort of ethnic prayer beads instead, because they "look almost the same."
Any real suggestions?
