This bit from Deadspin cracked me up. You don't even wanna know how long we spent untwisting wires from Christmas toys.
Excerpt: "Speaking of Barbie dolls, every Barbie doll you buy is fastened to its box with about seven hundred very small gray wires. You'd think the doll was a fucking psych ward patient, they're so determined to hold it down. These gray wires exist in virtually all toy packaging now, and they have begun to ruin my Christmas every year. NO MORE GRAY WIRES!"
