Beware of (potentially) deadly Ikea furniture

So you saved a few bucks buying furniture at Ikea, and risked eating horse meat when you tried out their meatballs. Just make sure to anchor that cheap chest of drawers that you bought to the wall, as per the instructions (yes, the ones you tossed aside) because the consequences could be dire if you have small kids.

Here’s my story, as it ran on the Yahoo! website. I took some video and pictures too, which AFP put one wire. The next day we all had a good laugh at work because The New York Times used one of my pictures along with my byline (but ignored my story). Either way, it’s always an honor to be published in The Gray Lady.
