Here is how to deal with some annoying openings after 1.e4 for both sides. Starting with the least sound:

2. Elephant Gambit
 
 
3. Latvian Gambit
 
 
 
None of the following attempt to refute the annoying opening, they are just ways to improve one's chances against them.
 
4. Smith-Morra Gambit
 
 
5. Pirc, 150 Attack
 
 
6. Sicilian "Dragondorf"
