The Wife and I were out shopping last weekend and we came across a toy sale.
We decided to buy one as a (gag) gift for a friend who’s family does a lot of puzzles, so we picked one up.
Imagine our surprise when, at the register, it rang up for 50% off of the sale price.
Yes, we purchased this amazing representation of President Obama’s legacy for the staggering sum of 54 cents.
I guess the Administration has been right about the economy all long. No inflation here folks.
Apparently the Hope and Change luster has lost some of its sheen.
ps. I had to wait to post this until my friend had received his “gift” so as to not spoil the surprise.
His reaction was…interesting:
Thank you so much for the Milton Bradley Commemorative Barack Obama “Yes We Can!” puzzle. I’m at a loss for how to show my most heartfelt appreciation. Email won’t come close. A proper response requires pen and ink on paper. Honestly though, I fear that alone will surely fall short as well. I’ll put serious thought toward how one might properly reciprocate such a thoughtful and beautiful gift from as dear a friend as yourself. It will most likely take a few days of pondering, but fear not. A solution will come.
On a more mundane note, the transaction you completed prior to making me this wonderful gift is a testament to the efficiency by which the market clears precious commemorative items such as these. $1.07. Priceless.
