I almost have to refuse to believe this is legit.

Story almost too difficult to believe? - Check
Sure to generate flame traffic? - Check
Posted by a brand new user? - Check

Not that it isn't entertaining, but this is right up there with that "I can't get my balls in the condom" bit.

Why would anyone make up a story and put it on the internet, if it isn't true? What is there to gain? If it's on the internet, it has to be real, right? -- the saying of someone I forgot, maybe famous or not, but didn't abandon their theory to stories on the web

also, I don't get caught up in determining if something is "real" or imaginary... if it's on the net, it's already real. The scenario may be false, though I can't see how anyone can determine that by a misplaced subject or thinking-track typo of "phone" for "ipad", but if it serves its purpose, (a funny anecdote, not an actual description of nefarious illegalities) it doesn't matter.

Oh, and thanks for posting it, Reese.
