remember this little snippet about the duke?
or the bag lady in paris' questionable, but no doubt effective, babysitting practices?

like how in the hell is one supposed to extract a toy/item from the new rigid clamshell packaging with a pair of common household scissors WITHOUT scraping, gouging, or cutting your hands and/or damaging the item inside in the process?
