Accelerated aging

Antiques cost more for a reason. Aging will improve this item, but we are unable to pre-age our doohickeys while offering them at this affordable price.

To speed up the aging process, we recommend the following procedure:

Day 1: Enjoy your doohickey in its brand new state.

Day 2:

  1. Drop it repeatedly down a flight of stairs
  2. Dunk it in a cold water bath
  3. Let it dry

Twice a week for the next 7 weeks: repeat the steps you took on Day 2.

The original was a stone relic taken from an ancient tomb, worn, crumbling, and barely discernible from its encasing cobwebs. It has now been rebuilt and a manufacturing process developed using cutting-edge technologies and lots of lasers.
