Flatpacked

So I open up the box of my new IKEA silk scarf, and there it all is:

-A mulberry sapling
-A dozen caterpillars
-Two itty-bitty knitting needles
-And 482 pages of utterly incomprehensible pictographic drawings.

SKÖRF

     ...Rattling around in the bottom of the box, a little metric Allen wrench that doesn't fit anything.

A whole new level of some assembly required.

Gentlemen, I believe we have just seen the birth of a classic here.

Ahhhh!

But I have to ask:

Were those incomprehensible drawings in some foreign language that disdains the alphabet we normally use?

I always figure that anything from Ikea is a challenge...like a crossword puzzle, with half the clues missing.

To be purchased only by people with the patience of a saint, and all the time in the world to experiment.

See...they're testing us :-)

There are kits and then there are kits. Nothing beats Ikea though.
