Darwin was a Fraud

Casey - Entertainment Associate Tag

Customer: Hi, could you tell me if this is the right price?

*Customer makes skeptical face and hands Casey "Cake - Fashion Nugget"

Casey: Well, it's likely the price marked on it (21.99), but I'll double check.

*Casey scans CD in system - it's, unsurprisingly, 21.99*

Casey: Yep, that's the price

*Hands customer the CD*

Customer: Woah, pretty expensive huh? I mean it's so old. It doesn't really make much sense, the CD is from like 1996. It should be cheap.

Casey: Yeah, well, newer albums are more popular which means we can get more in and sell way more. So we can sell them for cheaper. Older albums don't sell as well so we only get a couple of copies. They raise the price to make it profitable.

Customer: oh, ok.

Casey: But, yeah, it is pretty expensive.

Customer: Especially for a 1996 CD.

Casey: . . .

Cake - I Will Survive (Track 7 from "Fashion Nugget")

Luckily, some of us are so OLD that we bought those CDs the first time around, when they were cheap.
