Product Design Fail

We started wrapping some Christmas presents today, using some wrapping paper we picked up a few weeks back at the local Christmas Tree Shops store.

Well, it turns out, some stupid numbnut working in a Chinese wrapping paper factory decided it would be a nice touch to put a smooth, almost wax paper-like finish on the paper, so that when you tried to stick a piece of scotch tape on it, you'd get to experience the adhesion characteristics of a naked drunk guy trying to scale a greased plate glass window.

I'm picturing some Chinese guy having a Billy Blazejowski kind of epiphany, screaming into a pocket tape recorder, "Self-opening plesents!".
