Christmas songs

Is it wrong that when I hear "I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus"  by the Jackson 5, I wonder what sort of beating Papa Joe threw on MJ and his mom when he told him?

The customer pulls a book off the shelves of collections and graphic novels.
Customer: "So what will you take for this?"
Employee: "Cash is good, but we take credit cards too."
Customer: "No this one came from over there." points to the shelf, "It says you have to trade for those'"
Employee: "Where?"
Customer: "On that sign. It says you will only trade these for paperbacks."
Employee: "That's not what Trade Paperback means. It is what they call this style of book. It just means these are collections of regular comics in one volume."
Confused customer: "Yeah I know these are all (insert title) comics in here, but what sort of paperbacks are you looking for to trade for it?"

Stupid things people say in comic shops #1!

Stupid things people say in comic shops is something I kept wanting to do but never got around to. Guess I could start back now, right? Most of these are things said by the "normal" people who don't always come into comic shops, though not always exclusively. Regular comic store customers say plenty of stupid stuff too. This first STPSICS were actually said by people who seemed unable to read a price tag. Even a few who were "regulars" but maybe didn't buy many back issues.
Customer: "Is this what the books is actually worth?" (holding a 90's comic with $1.50 price tag)
Comic shop employee: "umm yeah?"
Customer: A HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS! I got 2 of these at home. How much will you give me for them?
Comic shop employee: No, that is a dollar and fifty cents. Not a hundred and fifty bucks.
Sometimes the conversation ends there with general embarrassment. One time I recall a guy telling me he thought it was a comma, which made him look event dumber because then it should be $1,500, right?
The funniest people are the ones who now think the comic shop is trying to rip them off.
Customer: You got to pay more than that!
Comic shop employee: Actually we have plenty of those so we aren't buying them, but you can buy that one for a dollar fifty.
Now oblivious customer: Nah I don't want to sell you mine anyways, you guys are cheap.

nerdy thoughts

There are just some nerdy things I think just don't work on social media but still do on the blogonut. Like this: I hope that nobody tells (redacted digital comic website) that they added over 200 extra pages to that Steranko SHIELD collection by adding the Doctor Strange stories from Strange Tales also.
