A Record Store Joke

"What do you call a CD

that retails for more than $9.99?

image from Answer: A return.

"...Our customers have spoken loud and clear. They love their CDs and they love purchasing them from indie record stores. The only problem we're currently facing, and will continue to face in the future, is the current price point...we've inherited the $9.99 price point from the non-traditional retailers, from the loss-leader shenanigans of the big boxes to the digital smoke and mirrors offered up online."

- Eric Levin of The Alliance Of Independent Media Stores
