It may be Photoshopped, but it's still funny! is known for selling, not only new books and other goods, but - where applicable - used versions of the same thing. For example, it's common to see Amazon advertise books at new price, and also link to sellers of used copies.

I received the image below via e-mail. (Click the picture for a larger view.) Despite the realism of the image, this is one category of goods where I think used sales don't apply!

Heh, reminds me of a game I played.

There was a shield named "Ribbed Protector", which was made much fun of. The developers promptly changed the name to "Protector of the Mount". Seeing that in the patch notes made me seriously cramp up from laughing too hard.

Why yes, I'm a geek, why do you ask? *sheepish grin*

Mikael, have you ever played World of Warcraft? There's a series of daily quests in one zone with such names as "Polishing the Helm", "Blowing Hodir's Horn", and "Thrusting Hodir's Spear"... :D

Question: How do you re-use a condom?

Answer: Turn it inside out and shake the f**k out of it.

Appropriately for the theme, by the time you get to "thrusting Hodir's spear" you are most definitely feeling screwed.

LabRat: I tried the spear daily once or twice, then permanently abandoned it in favor of all of the other Hodir dailies, with a liberal helping of rep purchasing to get Exalted. :)
