On the other hand, shipping is free!

Our nomination for the most ill-timed ad of the year goes to SHARPER IMAGE for this numbing sales pitch in the the New York Times.  It's hustling a $399 Hover Board  as THIS YEAR'S HOTTEST gift . That much is the highest truth in advertising after  reports that these two-wheeled New World  conveyors have caught fire more than 11 times and some riders have fallen.  Serious enough for Amazon to withdraw them from its  online markets and airlines have banned them.
