Dear Google Ad Words

I took a survey for Google AdWords sometime back about how they could improve their product. I had totally forgotten about it, until a package arrived on my doorstep yesterday.
The "duffel bag" they sent is now in the running for worst chotchke of all time. It is a small, flimsy bag. I ran corporate gifts for Discovery for a while, and I'd guess it probably cost between $1-$2. Which is fine, it's a gesture gift. While I would have preferred a donation to a charity, or, really, anything else, I understand the logic.
The real problem is the horrible plastic smell. Last time we encountered something like that, it was a mini trampoline, that had caused an allergic reaction in a friend. I brought it into the office for show and tell, and was immediately encouraged to move it to a well ventilated area :)

I can still smell it....seal the box. I touched it and I think I got a rash.
