This Tale From The Video Store is 100% true.
I was in my local Family Video store a couple of weeks ago, and overheard a family trying to choose a movie. They consisted of a grandmother, a mother and her at least twenty five year old son. I cannot emphasize the man's age enough. He was a full grown adult male.
The son was peering intently at the back of a DVD case. Suddenly he turned to his mother and asked her a question:
Junior: "Ma, what does P-A-R-T-I-A-L mean?"
Mother: "Partial. That means a little bit."
Junior: "Oh, OK. Then this movie has par-shull nudity in it!"
Mother (clucking her tongue in disgust, along with the grandmother): Oh, we don't want to watch that kind of show."
Junior: "No, Ma, it's not a dirty pitcher, it just means there's a little bit, like maybe there's a scene in a locker room and someone walks by in a towel. So can I get it? Huh? Can I get it? Ma? Can I? Ma, you're not listening! Listen to me! Can I get it?"There's no hope for this country.
