Holiday drones are great until they end up in a tree

Holiday drones  Few things define the holidays like the fading whine of a newly-gifted drone as it floats ever farther away, over branches and out of sight, where it will eventually smack into a tree and smash into the ground.

Many people have given and received drones this holiday season. Many of those people have also watched as their presents in minutes turned into husks of their former selves.

Drones are hard, but hopefully we can all have a collective laugh at just how gloriously frustrating they can be as a holiday gift.

Many people, for example, tried to bring down the Christmas tree with their new toys.

Others are generalists, and aimed for any tree in sight.

Others said, who needs a tree when there’s so much hair atop human heads?

And then there were those who didn’t crash their drones so much as find ways of misplacing them.

So, before you decide to keep that drone you find in your backyard or your park or on your roof or on your street, maybe check Twitter. It’s gotta be someone’s.

And if you want to continue laughing at the misfortune of new drone owners, check out @faineg’s timeline.
