Turning On the Hand

The gentleman across the street had a mechanical hand in his shop that he sold for $5.
It ran on batteries. The person who bought the hand took it home and put it on his dining
room table next to the candles. I know what you are thinking! You are thinking that he
accidentally placed the candles too close to the hand and the hand burst into flames. Well,
that's not true. He turned on the hand and eventually, about two days later, the hand stopped
grasping at nothing. Or was it two years? No. It was two days. Two years later, he got a divorce.
