How funny can this be? ( if its funny at all), the world’s largest package delivery company United Parcel Service (UPS), made a blunder when a military rifle was delivered to an address instead of a Christmas present meant for a little girl.

Newsday reports that 66-year-old Joel Berman opened the keyboard-sized case containing the gun in front of his wife and 6-year-old granddaughter Wednesday night at his home in New York, USA.

Inside the foam-lined case was a semi-automatic rifle along with a scope, a stand, an ammo clip and copies of an Arizona man’s driver’s license and concealed-weapons permit.

Berman says his granddaughter’s mouth popped open when she saw the gun instead of the toy plane she was anticipating.

According to News 12, the 50-calibre rifle package was addressed to someone in Upstate New York, near Monticello. Why it was delivered to Berman wasn’t clear.
