Truth in Advertising
Big sale. Buy Two get one free
I race across the mall aisle and stare at an empty shelf
What had they been selling? I glance around for clues.
They sell phone covers, socks, and bras, so I wonder…was it
Valentines Day phone covers, Santa Socks, 4th of July bras?
“Hey,” I demand from an employee. “What was on this shelf?”
He looks, and thinks. “I don’t remember,” He says,
“But you would be surprised how many people come over to see.”
So much for truth in advertising.
