Israeli Internet indexing portal Walla came up with a decidedly original present for the Jewish New Year.

Scorning the more mundane candy and honey, or tedious old wines, Walla's Rosh Hashana gift to its faithful 160 employees was bongs, water pipes used to smoke marijuana and hashish.

Many of its workers rejected the remarkable gift, however, preferring no present at all.

Walla merged with Israel Online of the Ha'aretz group in June 2001.
