The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

[By Nic Lindh on Friday, 30 July 2004]

There are cars for sale!

Through the television set today, the Good News was delivered unto me: Apparently car dealers have realized that cars are expensive, and are now offering sales! Yes, it’s true!

Many different car selling establishments apparently came upon this great idea all at the same time, because the commercial spaces on television were full of great deals to be had on vehicles.

Alas, it seems these sales will only persist for a short period of time, no doubt due to the hefty monetary losses said car selling establishments will suffer due to the “low low prices” they are offering.

You heard it here first. Cars can be had on sale now.
