1. Big Lots Presents Angry Birds!

    SO I WAS AT MY LOCAL BIG LOTS the other day shopping for expired, off-brand breakfast cereal at prices never as low as you’d think they’d be when I happened across a flock of Angry Birds magnets.

    Marvelous!

    Now can we get a closeup of the top of the package, please?

    And make it cockeyed and slightly out of focus, if you would.

    Perfect!  Now what in God’s name is going on here?! Big Lots is a closeout store!

    Eight dollars for these things?! At a closeout store?!

    But that’s not even the best part!

    The best part is that it says “This is not a toy.” and then, elsewhere, we see the manufacturer’s name: “Commonwealth app TOYS.”

    Seriously, how stupid do they think we are?  We know it’s not a toy!

    It’s four toys!

    Five if you count the plastic packaging!
