'Bootleg' DVDs

Once in a while, you make a mistake despite the many clues that you might be making a mistake. I thought those DVDs looked like a good deal.

Clues to note:

1. Site doesn't use https. One has come to expect https, and thus did not notice when making transaction that it was not. Sigh.

2. Price was not only cheap, but in retrospect, way too cheap.

3. Package arrived not only quickly, but way too quickly.

4. Package was shipped from Shanghai, China.

5. Package was marked 鞋子 under declaration of contents. For the non-Chinese-speaking, this is fairly close to the faecal expletive I vented when I saw it.

Then again, I was amused by the probably unintended joke contained in that declaration. Bootleg DVDs indeed. It's not as bad, however, as the joke I planted here.
