Well, it’s a certainly better than getting pubes in your keyboard, and about as bad as getting a 10-year-old hard drive “new,” but I think getting a crudely-drawn penis in your factory-sealed external drive has a special sort of horror to it. If they can slip a wanger in there, they can do anything.
It wasn’t all balls, though; included in the box were a few extra USB cables. I’m guessing this was going to be a special package for some factory worker’s friend, but ended up in general inventory. They should call everyone who worked on the shift that serial number came from, and have them come in and draw and wang. Man, I should be a detective.
