Ordered an item through HomeDepot - first time it arrived it came damaged. Requested a replacement part and it came today direct from the manufacturer wrapped in a December issue of "Al-Quds Al-Arabi" newspaper. 99% of the paper is in Arabic. Kindof odd packaging to use.

Waiting for dinner to cook, decided to look it up for the hell of it. Apparently it's got a questionable background: based out of London, pretty much condones radical Islam and violence, etc etc.

Wikipedia (not the most accurate source, but what I could find): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Quds_Al-Arabi

So, I'd have to guess someone who works at this company follows this paper (circulation of only around 50,000). Company is located on Long Island.

Poll incoming

Pic added (hopefully good format)

So it was being used for packing material....maybe the way it was used gives a clue as to the packer's motives.





Sometimes it's fun to read the newspapers that things come packed in.

I used to work in a shipping depot.  We bought scrap newsprint from a printer to use for packaging.  Came in big sheets, just whatever part of the days printing run they couldn't use.  Lots of newspapers, dailies, weeklies, etc.



So, this might be one of those situations.  Could be just what they had delivered that day and nobody there even reads Arabic.

Home Depot sells fleshlights?

What makes you think it's a radical islamic newspaper?  Just because it's in english doesn't mean it's the national enquirer.

i was thinking a pig's head, but the pickled pigs feet should be more easily obtainable.

Start the tape rolling, set it on fire, and upload to youtube.  See how many death threats you can collect before youtube pulls it.

Well if someone did not use it to wipe their ass with it, you are being set up.

to boot, the replacement piece (lighting) arrived broken (again). So I had to put another request in for a replacement of that. The phone operator said she would put in a request for extra packaging...

good lord, what am I going to get next...
