Resoundingly stupid lede of the morning

3 T's: Think, talk, Tiffany's
Knight Ridder
Holiday presents can pack the emotional wallop of a 1990 Dom Perignon buzz or a three-car wreck.

That's a three-car-wreck lede, all right. I can't stop staring at it. Tell you what, readers: Let's have a contest. Hold it down to 30 words (that's right, two-thirds more verbiage than the Hemingwayesque original) and try to top this for brainless imagery.

Although to tell you the truth, I haven't seen anyone try to slip that one past the MOian desk this month. A quick Google News search, however, proves other places ain't so lucky ( ).
