UPDATE: Don’t Take Any Wooden Flat Screens

Yesterday, we reported on Indiana residents who were duped into buying flat-screen tvs on the street that, upon opening at home, ended up being oven doors. How could anyone be duped by such an inane ruse, we asked ourselves, chomping cigars in our pleather armchairs. Below, detail of the packaging used to wrap the oven doors.

Make of that what you will.
