WEST MIDLANDS, England — Ah, Christmas. It’s full of surprises, right?

Well if you’re shopping at Poundland, the United Kingdom’s version of the 99 Cents Only store, you still might be able to pick up a copy of the Irish Tenor Trio singing holiday classics such as “Jingle Bells” and “Danny Boy” on DVD.

And if there are any copies left on the shelves, you might be in for a jolt. The DVDs don’t include the Irish Tenor Trio; they contain hardcore porn featuring only threesomes.

Store officials now are scurrying to recall nearly 10,000 DVD copies from the chain of more than 100 stores, which sell every item for £1. The 14-year-old company had $356 million in revenue last year.

Apparently, the mix-up occurred after vendor Waterfall Home Entertainment muddled up boxes at its factory.

“It’s the sort of thing you buy your granny,” Waterfall executive Shirley Robinson said. “I hope people see the funny side.”
