exploding Ikea furniture

Yikea is a range of flat pack furniture that is assembled in exactly the same way as every other Ikea product, except for one difference: after a set amount of time the furniture explosively bursts open into a number of its component parts.

This is possible because each item contains a number of springs under compression, placed at strategic points throughout the components. During assembly, tabs are pulled from the covers of the springs allowing the air to begin reacting with the special glue plugs that maintain their compressed state.

It may take a month, or even a year, but eventually the protective glue will weaken sufficiently to release the deadly springs, and the furniture will erupt into a large number of fragmented pieces.

       So it differs from Ikea furniture how?

       ^ the actual claim of explosiveness, rather than a disclaimer of liability. Subtle, yet there it is.

       Is there a refund if it doesn't resemble the exploded view in the instructions? And, importantly, does it go "Sproing-oing-oing!" ?
