Darwin Awards, anybody?

from today's Shelf Awareness, an e-newsletter to the book trade:

Police blotters and the book trade. The Consumerist took note of the following from the Hudson Hub Times: After a local man called police to report he had seen an unidentified person leave a package at his house, the officer who investigated the incident "said he could see the package was clearly labeled with the logo and asked the man if he had ordered anything from the firm recently. The man reportedly said 'Why yes, I did.' The officer told the resident his order had arrived. The resident then said he was comfortable opening the box. The officer then left the scene."

Really?! Is anybody else thinking about the Darwin Awards here? Or at least an honorable mention, since his stupidity didn't actually result in his death?

Smart consumers shop Indie!
