  18. Chicken Underwear | 6:36 am |

    Outside of NYC the are called Family Dollar stores.

  19. Chicken Underwear | 6:37 am |

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

  20. Esperologist | 8:57 am |

    @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.

  21. sparky | 10:52 am |

    I’ll take a million of the 0 cent items.

  22. Seventy2rd o clock | 11:39 am |

    ”An Everything for 99c or less and a 7-Up, please.”

  23. Jim | 8:48 pm |

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

  24. Sam | 1:51 am |

    So, wal-mart finally decided on a name change…

  25. Chicken Underwear | 5:37 pm |

    We don’t have Walmart in Brookyn

  26. Jewels | 9:10 pm |

    Shop assistant: Yes that’s right, 99c, more-or-less…..

  27. Pete | 6:44 pm |

    Available wherever books are still sold:
    “Brooklyn Koans” by The Daimyo of Flatbush

  28. drinkyoursteak | 12:26 am |

    Or less&up – there’s more! Not sold in any store!

  29. Charlene | 11:02 pm |

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

  30. BC | 9:37 pm |

    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

  31. Biff the Understudy | 12:33 pm |

    Ninety-nine is price
    That amount or less and more
    Everyone’s confused

  32. maxx420 | 5:24 pm |

    No, we,re open!

  33. grine | 8:11 am |

    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.

  34. RK | 10:43 am |

    But wait! There’s more! And less!!!

  35. epicak | 12:08 am |

    Now its $1.30, now its 45c.. god when will I have to stop saying random prices?

  36. Draconex | 7:51 pm |

    They sell things at basically any price!

  37. Cindi | 12:17 am |

    Oh shame on you America, even the Engrishers are laughing at you!
