Attn Santa: Pre-Assemble That Bike

Santa, you know that impossible-to-find bicycle you'll be getting my boy, if he's good, this year? The one the elves got a month ago, and have been hiding in the North Pole for the month?

Well, I suggest you assemble it, last night. And discover that it came with two left-threaded pedals. No right pedal. Making the bike useless. And now you'll have to run from store to store hoping against hope you can dig your way out of this hole.

Ouch. >< Good luck to you!

Yeah, thanks. Now Santa in a pre-assemble frenzy. All toys must be checked! At least he'll be able to recycle a bunch of cardboard boxes before Christmas arrives...

Auw, poor frantic Santa. Of course now the elves have one bike ready with two right pedals ...

The mission has been accomplished. Santa obtained a right pedal, and sent the extra left pedal off to find its mate.
