    Months old. Still CLASSIC:

    A woman from South Carolina was looking to score a sweet deal on an iPad, but what she got instead was a block of wood with a photo of an iPad pasted to the top.

    Ms. Ashley Mcdowell, from Spartanburg, South Carolina was purchasing dinner from a local McDonald’s when she was approached by two men in the parking lot, who wanted to sell her either an iPad or a laptop.

    While showing her a brand new iPad, the men explained that they had purchased the iPads in bulk, and were now selling them for the discounted price of $300 from the trunk of their rimless Impala. McDowell explained that she only had $180 in cash with her, and the men generously agreed to accept the money.

    The men handed her a Fed Ex box, and rather than checking it out at the scene, McDowell drove home. When she opened the box, she didn’t find an iPad – instead, she found a piece of wood that had been painted black and decorated with an Apple logo. :snicker:

    For $180 they could at least have cleaned it up a little.

    The wut?

    Had to do a quick look up on Wiki.

    I was in Europe going to college during that time.

    Never heard of 'em.

    I also missed out on Vanilla Ice.

    Thank God. :secret:

    I still have a few of those cassettes in with my regular cassettes boxed up down in the basement.

    Couldn't remember what they were for. I don't have the player any longer.
