This week my heart’s been breaking for poor old Dell computers. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with their laptops whatsoever, they’re actually perfectly good products, except for the minor inconvenience of the batteries exploding into flames.

That’s right shoppers, come on into Dell computers! It’s our explosive fire sale! The laptop burning battery bonanza! Four million computers are walking out the fire escape!

Bring your truck, bring your trailor, bring your fire-extinguisher… Look, the only equipment that needs shutting down here, sir, is these laptops!
