Funny NYC Survival Kit Ideas?

Hey everyone,

I am planning to put together a Funny Survival Kit for our return visit to NYC in 3 weeks. I will be traveling with the same group as before, which is my mum (64), Cousin (42), Friend (42), and myself (40).

So far I have only come up with...

Sticks to hold our eyes open (to help with the tiredness)

Energy tablets (aid relief of aching muscles and tiredness)

Foot spray (to revive the feet)

Pocket size Poncho's

Can anyone else come up with other suggestions please!

Compasses (which may prove useful, actually)

Hand sanitizer

subway map or regular map

the Body Shop used to have a cream for aching legs - not sure if they still make it

NYC condoms (you can get them here)

Ear Plugs!

The compass is actually a really good idea :-)

Band-aids for blisters: you will need these.

And it's not humorous, but I'd include a good street map.

Thanks All

Like the idea of a compass and street map is already packed.

Evening, I really don't think we will need NY condoms??? Would be funny especially the look on my mums face.

Might actually include a list of bars, as we never actually drank in any on our last visit and my mum has never forgiven us!!

Have to agree with evening on the hand sanitizer...I always carry a little bottle on me. And antibacterial wipes too!

I didnt think you needed the condoms, but they could be humorous - and a great souvenir! What other city has branded condoms?

ear plugs - great idea! could have really come in handy in Dublin. NYC is silent in comparison!

Toy guns, we all know how dangerous New York can be. ;-)

Not so much funny as practical; a huge stack of $1 bills...
