Raw meat in lieu of the iPod is one thing. However, a really thoughtful employee would have also included some potatoes.

I am confused, would the meat not smell after a few hours/days since its not being refrigerated.

Either the mother, girl or the entire family has no sense of SMELL.

There are the clueless, the tasteless and in this case, the noseless.

I would be PISSED! But that still is unbelievably funny, maybe some type of inside joke at a factory? I would just love to know what the person was thinking

Eww.. that's so gross...

I can't imagine not noticing the smell, though.

In the first link, the story states that "Rachel Cambra purchased a new high-tech iPod for her daughter as a gift this week."

In the latter link it mentions that "Rachel Cambra, a mom and an employee of that Wal-Mart store, gave her son a Christmas gift which she believed to be a Video iPod she had put on layaway."

Before getting to the meat of this dilemma, should it be that difficult for either the mother or crack reporter to get all the basic facts straight?

I suppose that salted meat, like cold cuts, would keep for a while... but why on earth would someone go to all the trouble to do that?

On the brighter side, the earphones double as a meat thermometer.

They should have used dark meat for a black iPod video and kept the breasts for a white one, no?

At least disgruntled employees in Hawaii dont go "postal". And at least it was wrapped. Looks like smoked salmon to me. If they had only thrown in a bagel too.
