Your Mind-Numbingly Simple Economics Quiz of the Day

You are in an unnamed ridiculously large discount resaler’s store, and you’re looking to pick up a certain popular DS game.

Do you pick up this… 


…or this?

 Think carefully…  Sure, paying $10 less sounds like a good deal, but are you SURE you really want all those extra accessories lying around?  (There are other games for sale in similar bundles, but this one was just about the only one that wasn’t standard DS shovelware.)

It’s a World! of Fun! For the Whole Family!

With the Holiday season comes holiday decorating, and at Wal-Mart, whoever got the assignment to design the decorations for the toy department this year must have been really excited about it, if the results are any indication: 

Welcome! to Toyland! with Wally! and Marty!

It’s not just a few aisles of shelves for toys, it’s Toyland! with your hosts Wally! and Marty! (who, are apparently supposed to be elves, but look suspiciously like first-draft CG rejects from that new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie set to destroy another precious childhood memory sometime next week.)  If anyone in the Wal-Mart corporate office happens to read this, you might want to check to see if anyone over in the design department is hoarding leftover halloween candy…

(I probably would have sent this one over to  the “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks, but it doesn’t appear to be in their “department”.)
