    It is not a “language” thing, it is a “it doesn’t matter what the sign says, we sell cheap crap” thing.

    @Chicken Underwear
    Family Dollar Store? I like it, spend your family of dollars here.
    This item over hear will cost you a family of 8.

    Did anyone else notice the spelling mistake – “everyting.” These guys get low marks for math AND English!

    Schrödinger gave up on the cat and went into selling things that are more and less than 99 cents.

  30. BC | 9:37 pm |  Vote: Add rating 1  Subtract rating 0  

    I don’t know. Technically this seems right. I think they mean everything is either 99 cents or less than 99 cents, in the total range leading back up to 99 cents?

    Ok nevermind forget it

    Ninety-nine is price

    This is logically equivalent to “switching to GEICO could save 15% or more on car insurance”. Both are null statements.

    We truly need to bring logic back as a compulsory college course.
