The sweet smell of burning fur

Oh, it just makes my day when something goes wrong for Disney.  Looks like the Disney-branded DVD players are being recalled.  Why?  Well, there's a small problem with overheating and exploding.  Uh-oh, Mickey get hot and go boom!  I know it really has nothing to do with Disney aside from the hideous colors and Princess/Mickey/Fairy...
