10 year-old 'Little Italy' Ohio resident Angelo Gabucci spent Sunday morning "tangled in a sticky mass of Testor's model glue and an unknown variety of plastic pieces" after hastily attempting to assemble a 1/32 scale model of the Space Shuttle, a gift from his grandma Angela.
According to Angelo's mom, Carmella, "Angelo made a big fuss all year for that crazy thing, and now he made a big mess of it. He used a too much glue, and won't a follow the directions. I TOLDA my husband to make him a wait until he was older! Whatsa so crazy about my idea of buying him a new winter coat? Itsa not so crazy now, huh?!"

"The Paczkis went like a mad house! Next year I'll skip the poppy seeds. I hope someone eats them, or...*sob!*...I-I'll give them to the dog!"
