Did you guys hear about this? I saw it on KDKA last night, right after Ben made me cry.
Apparently some TKO punching bags sold at Dicks Sporting Goods, a Burgh-based company, contained not sand or pellets or anything pellet-esque.
A Cincinnati-area family got a smelly surprise when they opened a punching bag they purchased earlier this year.
Joe Heckel said he and his son were moving a TKO brand heavy punching bag from their garage to the basement when they decided to see what was inside in case the bag later leaked.
But Heckel said that instead of sand or plastic pellets, he found the bag full of men’s and women’s underwear, some of it used.
“(There were) bras, thongs and bathing suits. We could not believe there were clothes inside instead of sand,” he said.
Heckel said the smell was “bad, real bad.”
I bet it was!
The best part: the company representative of TKO bags called it “a quality problem.”
I would call perhaps a leaking bag or a torn bag a “quality problem.” A punching bag filled with smelly bras, pantyhose, and underwear?
That’s what I call awesome!
Be sure to view the images because I spit out my half-caff hazelnut Get Go coffee when I saw the torn whitey tighties.
