Amazon's announcement of its forthcoming drone delivery system (aka Prime Air, coming circa 2015, best case scenario) inspired much oooh-ing and ahhh-ing today, and even more sarcasm because the internet. The best so far was this really intricate UPS missed delivery notification parody, followed shortly by a sensitive company lawsuit notice. The fine print is the best, "Any attempt to rearrange will be ignored. We own you now." Kudos @QuantumPirate.
