Girl Gets Bizarre Surprise Instead of iPod


www.myfoxdc.com

A little girl thought she was getting an iPod for Christmas but ended up getting a rude surprise. She got the box but when she opened it up, she found a surprising switch: the iPod had been replaced with a bizarre note.

The note reads in part "Reclaim your mind from the media shackles."

Jay Ellis, the girls father, returned the ipod to the Germantown, Md. Wal-Mart store where he purchased it. The store manger told him that another customer returned an iPod with a similar issue.

hmm I agree that we should try and open the minds of as manny people as we can , but this idea isn't really helpfull . I would even say it is dmaging the image of open minded people
why ? Well because stuff like that puts us (the open minded people) in a bad light as law breakers and I dont think we want to give the goverment excusess to be able to react

When I first read the title, I was thinking of this comic:



But the truth is as strange as fiction.

That's a message I would approve. Turn off the prolefeed!

in the mean time the person who wrote the note is making a fortune selling stolen ipods, who else would pay over a 100 quid for that little nugget of information
im off to reclaim my mind by listening to the white album on my ipod

Good point.. whoever did this would probably qualify to be hunted down under the new thought crime legislation.


Can't have people rejecting material goods and associated debt now can we?

ROFL, a great story. I'm guessing something like this would have to be done in-factory or in the very early stages of transit to avoid detection, so that means China. Lots of thought oppression there.
Beachcoma, awesome strip

So you're advocating theft? I think it's childish and stupid. Whomver did it should be placed in a small cell with a large man named Bubba and perhaps after a few midnight trysts they will learn to keep their hands off of things that are not theirs.
The end result here is that a couple of children had their christmas ruined. That's "a novel way"??

As always BeachComa, you never fail to crack me up


Sure this thread is a bit of a crack up for sure, but your hilarious touch made it doubly so


Peace

P.S --P.S -- As an aside, get yrselves a Creative Zen...Much more bang for your buck than any comparable player on price, features and capacity...

The audio and video quality will blow you away...I've had mine since Sept and I love it so much I might well propose to it soon

Now let's wait and see how many counterfit notes are turned into the Walmarts hoping to get a second iPod for the price of 1.

How sad....I would suppose there's a lesson to be learned and if there is no mfr. tamper-proof coverings around any of these electronic gadgets, caveat emptor. Parents should probably pre-screen any of these gadgets that have the possibility of harming or influencing their kids. Kids are a target sometimes and it's just getting crazier and crazier trying to protect them all the time.

I can't think of a single kid in America who will open that box read the note and say "I've been set free! No more mindless technology for me!"

"Thank God I was released from my desire for that ipod"

Badge, When I went to play it, it said "This video is no longer available."

So.....where's your feedback page. I didn't get what I wanted....

I love this story, and hope I hear more just like it. Perhaps that message sent a shock into the back of this girl's head, so one day, when she has a room full of crap, but her life sucks - it might creep back in and show her the way.

That being said, there's nothing wrong with having an i-pod or anything else. The family could have been level headed and humble as well.. but this was a great statement. Plus, they just returned it without any problems.

Ease up a little, did you have a bad giftmas?

only reason why i have a ipod is because it was the only mp3 player with 80 gig of memory.

I replaced itunes with rockbox anyway.

Why didn't the guy leave the note and the ipod in the box? i guess he was thinking "what the hey, might as well make some $, while i set the people around the world free".

to anyone that thinks "yay i love this story", i hope you wake up and everything you own has been stolen but the lowlifes left you a little note saying escape capitalism then you would have no right to complain because the dirty druggie that raped your house had the wit to rub it in.

This is exactly right. Thieves, plain a simple.
It's not just I-pods

I just opened a 4 DVD set of an old TV series. It was a gift for my wife.
Shrinkwrapped and everything.
there was nothing in the cases!
30 dollars for ZERO DVD's

I'll be attempting to return in tomorrow.
I'll post the results of my attempt..
