Not my Xmas list

The 25 most baffling toys. Hilarious, and suitable for your favorite asshole.

And sometimes funny things just happen…

So yesterday I stopped at the Supermarket on my way home from work. I was in the magazine section, looking for the December Vanity Fair (for this article: The Economic Consequences of Mr Bush). From behind me I heard “Hey!”

I turn around, no one. I looked down and there’s a small person of the male sort, blond hair, thick glasses. I say “Hey! Are you looking for a magazine, too?”
“Yeah, I want one about boats” so I look around and it takes awhile, but there’s a small section just above my head, so I point to the first one (it was called “Yachts” or something like that, seriously, “Yachts”).
“Like this?”

“No, I got that one.” (He’s got the one about Yachts? OK)
“Oh, you do, well, how about this one?”
“No, I got that one, too.”
“Oh, really?”
“Which one do you think is good?” (He’s asking me?!)
“Well, I don’t know much about boats. Which one of these don’t you have?” and I show
him a few of the others.
He says something like “I don’t know, how about that one?” Pointing to one in the back. I inadvertently grab two, but just show him one, holding the other one aside. He says, “What about the one in your other hand.”
“Well, it’s the same, I accidentally grabbed two.”
“Oh, well this one looks good.”
And at about this point I hear his mom calling for him and she comes around the corner and he walks off with his magazine. I hope she bought it for him. I would’ve if she didn’t. I found him thoroughly entertaining, and it’s not often I’m entertained at the Supermarket.

    I love that story!

    It’s so rare nowadays that you meet a small person with even a modicum of manners, it’s always entertaining as hell to meet one who can hold a conversation.

    Especially without the phrase, “KnowhuI’msayin’?”

    And y’know, as I was waiting for the God+Jesus robot to load, I noticed a FASCINATING article over in the sidebar… heh heh heh heh heh heh… I always knew that HE-MAN was a flamer — look at my so-called former “love life” and tell me that I can’t pick the closet cases. To paraphrase Squiggy, “I draws ‘em in like maggots!”

    Okayyyyy. Now which one of you folks are gonna tell me what I did wrong when posting, so that my links don’t “hyper”link? I know how to fix that in HaloScum, but not in Google/Blogger comments.

    BTW, I spent altogether too much time at that Cracked site, much like Mentis, but my favorite one was the Urban Legends That Turned Out To Be True (including one that was recently on CSI or Bones or somesuch) — another reason to hate Long Beach!
