We Call April Fools on the Williams-Sonoma Finger Slicer

Okay, let's play One of These Things Does Not Belong.

As recently reported by the New York Post:

A Park Slope woman is suing Williams-Sonoma for $2 million, claiming one of the high-end homeware company's serving trays broke in her hand, slicing off the end of her left ring finger.

In her Brooklyn federal lawsuit, teacher Laurie Maher-Samra claims there were no warnings against heating the Deruta Simple Small Oval Platter, which she put in her oven to melt the cheese on her nachos.

Nachos in Park Slope? Now you're just pulling our leg.

If the story is true, we're very sorry about your missing digit, Laurie. Please call us and we'll issue a correction. And we'll throw in a matching Deruta Hand-Painted Chicken Jug. Pinky swear!
