An MP3 video player given to a 10-year-old Cookeville girl for Christmas was loaded with porn and explicit songs.

The player apparently had been used by someone else, then returned to the store and was resold.

Daryl Hill said the material left his daughter in tears.

He said he purchased the player at a Wal-Mart in Sparta. A company spokesman said stores are not supposed to return opened packages to the sales floor. The matter is under investigation.

I saw this on the news and surprise! the parents may want to sue. Wal Mart offered a new MP3, but they wanted to talk to an attorney first about getting compensated for their distress. The way our courts award damages for real or perceived injuries or stress, they may have hit the lottery by choosing Wal Mart for their holiday shopping.

Poor kid.:(
What kinda adult plays such a horrible joke.
That reminds me of a horrible chain mail I got yesterday. Some people seem to think it is fun to play yucky jokes on people.
Yeah that store should have been more careful too.

Quoting Mel.

If you had read the whole story, it stated that the original owner had returned the MP3 player to WalMart but did not know how to remove the material he had placed on it. It was not a joke at all. It shouldn't have gone back on the shelves. Granted he should have read the instruction manual but what someone puts on their MP3 player is their business. WalMart also made the mistake of placing it back on the shelf. The lawsuit will probably (and hopefully) be thrown out as a nuisance suit. I'm not buying the "irreparable harm" done to their daughter. That's just my personal opinion on the matter. The world is not all rainbows and fuzzy kittens.
