Great post -- you had me laughing into my morning coffee. My very favorite is the Samplus Grabbiosa. I spent a few years as a marketing director for a healthcare IT firm and oversaw plenty of trade shows during my time with that company, and I always laughed at the people who walk around with a plastic bag like it's Halloween.
However, I must say that I have an old friend -- an economist at Princeton named Uwe Reinhardt, who's a brilliant healthcare analyst -- who used to go around at trade shows when no one was in the booths and snag as many bright, shiny things as he could. Then he sent them to his son Mark, who was serving with the Marines in Iraq, and Mark would hand them out to the Iraqi children. We gotta recognize the do-gooders for their efforts!

Fantastically fun post! I have seen all of these, although i am tending to check out the virtual trade shows more and more. I have clients using them, in some fashion, so we miss out on the real life people-watching opportunities.
