New Christmas Torture Method Exposed

This morning, I found this at the “Swap Meet,” where KPCC and Marketplace employees leave stuff that others might want.

Can you read the note? It says:

“On each string, about half of the bulbs work, and the others are dark. You might have some luck experimenting with the spare fuses and bulbs included.”

I know the idea is to be green and not fill up landfills, but in this case, given the chances that anyone who attempts to untangle this mess might then commit murder, I’d buy a new string of lights.
