Scammer messed up one of my ebay auctions, what junk should I send him?

Scammer bid up my camera and sent a fake email claiming they sent me money via paypal. I now have the scammer's address in Nigeria. What lightweight piece of junk should I send him? I probably won't do anything but let's have fun with some suggestions.

I have a credit but I will need to relist the item.

This PayPal® payment has been deducted from the buyer's account and has been "APPROVED"but will not be credited to your account until the shipment tracking number is sent to us for shipment verification so as to secure both the buyer and the seller. Below are the necessary information requested before your account will be credited. Send tracking number to us or email us through this pay.palaccountverifier@accountantemail.com and our customer service care will attend to you. As soon as you send us the shipment's tracking number to us for security purposes and the safety of the buyer and the seller,the money will be credited to your account.
**PLEASE NOTE**
Once shipment has been verified and the tracking number sent to us,
You will receive a "CONFIRMATION EMAIL " from PayPal® informing you that the Money has been credited.
Thank you for using PayPal!
The PayPal Team

A pigs head.... deep frozen in dry ice. That'll last long enough to get it out of the US Postal Service's hands.

It shouldn't start to get REALLY REALLY ripe until it gets as far as Egypt, or South Africa... or wherever the mail plane lands or ship docks.
By the time the sodden, rotting mess ends up on the scammers desk with a liquidy "splot" and a cloud of flies, it should be JUST right to express your feelings.

If you feel that sending a pigs head is culturally insensitive to a scammer who might be muslim, substitute a cows head... but shipping will be more for a cows head.
Could also use sheep, but you know how hard it is to find a sheeps head nowadays?
The last carcass-gram I had to send, it took me a whole day just to locate a PIGS head.

I wouldn't want to b responsible for an international incident of that magnitude but it is tempting.

I wish eBay would just block access to Nigerian IP addresses. Why can't they do that?

Why not print out one of these paper camera models and send it to them.

Or if you're feeling kind and want to send him something that actually takes pictures, print him out a copy of the Russian pinhole camera from the 70's, the Dirkon:
