When "everything you need" isn't

At Christmas, my wife and I unwrapped one gift to find a large box with a picture of pizza.

"Gourmet Pizza Made Easy," it said.  "Everything You Need for Homemade Pizza in Minutes."

Everything you need! Wow! I could hardly wait.

So what did the box contain? A pizza cutter, a pizza paddle, a pizza stone, and a recipe book.

"Everything you need?" Sure except little things like dough, sauce, cheese and toppings.

And even if it had those things, this would hardly be pizza "made easy."  The package contains a long set of instructions about what you have to do just to prepare the pizza stone.
