Cai Zeng, the inventor of those little double "A" and triple "A" battery packs, held shut with eyeglass-sized screws, fled his home in Szechuan, China, fearing for his life, due to worldwide frustration with his invention.

His invention? The "screw-secured battery door", was widely heralded by manufacturers and internet giants such as Alibbaablaa. "It was the great solution to using .0000001 more grams of plastic per cover and has saved us hundreds of yuan, even though the screws turned out to be a tiny bit more expensive than our savings," said one manufacturer.

"Master Zeng feared for his life after receiving several threats, both here and from abroad," said an apprentice to Zeng, "Nobody seemed to like this invention, even though many products provide you with a tiny screwdriver to go with the product. But some bad seeds did not include the screwdriver, frustrating many parents on birthdays and holidays."

Zeng's whereabouts are currently unknown. It is said he may have headed to the Iranian border region to hide in the many mountain caves there. He will await word for when the issues have blown over, probably after Christmas and New Years Day.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
