There are inappropriate analogies, and then there's this.

Chapters Employee: (handing customer The Diary of Anne Frank) You should probably look at this one.
Big Sunglasses Girl: (looking at back of book) Who's Anne Frank?
Chapters employee: Um... she's the Paris Hilton of the Holocaust.
Sunglasses: Oh.

I knew a girl in High School who thought birds didn't have legs and she was blonde. She actually left a special note in my yearbook thanking me for informing her that they did, indeed, have legs.

I strongly suspect that in addition to wearing oversized sunglasses, this vile creature is also a fan of UGGS.

I am vehemently against genocide... except when it comes to UGG-wearers. They must all be killed.

Bob, I think there are some situations where voicing suport for genocide is not a good idea.

It is true...I am the chapters employee who said it. The best was when a UWO girl came in looking for the book based on the movie Hook...

I'd love for Paris Hilton to be described retrospectively as "the Anne Frank of celebrities." Not because of anything to do with the Holocaust, mind you - but as a reminder of Paris meeting her demise at an private exhibition of the World's Largest Easy-Bake Oven (slogan: "That's hot!").

8:23, if you do not see the value in forcibly eradicating the UGG-wearing population, I cannot hold any further debate with you.

9:24,

I'm neither blonde nor female but on my bookshelf between J.G. Ballard and Arthur C. Clarke resides Terry Brooks' incredibly humorous and inventive book version of the film "Hook", and I take offense to your implication that it's a laughable request.

Thanks, once again, for proving that sometimes there are things so funny that you can't help but laugh, even as you are thankful that you are alone in the room so nobody realizes how completely and utterly inappropriate that comment was.

8:38 --> Haven't you heard? Access to post-secondary education is a right that should be guaranteed to ALL Canadians. And that includes stupid ones. Why should a person be barred from attending classes just because they didn't pay attention in high school? It's precisely this kind of outcome-centric thinking has been holding back disadvantaged groups in society. If you could possibly be bothered to remove those heteronormative blinders you're wearing, then maybe you'd be able to understand.

To be frank, your prejudices in favour of the aptitudinally-advantaged and against the cognitively-deficient turns my stomach. I banish you to the sociology department for immediate brainwa... er, "reeducation."
