Wandering // Naruto

And thus, fail and win were inseperably mixed

I can has birthday? Yes! I can has! I feel special now. Except for not.
Okay, to avoid making this post as completely and utterly pointless as it wants to be, random (but stupid funny) Barnes and Noble story. This happened about a billion years ago, so I don't know why I'm posting it now. Go figure.

Anyway. So, I was at Barnes and Noble, shopping in their graphic movels/manga section one day. While I'm there, I overhear a kid and his mom talking with an employee. Apparently the kid was looking for manga, and the employee was showing them where the right section was. So, once they get there, the mom looks at the signs over the bookshelves and asks, "'Graphic novels?' What does that mean? I don't get it."

Employee lady is trying to be helpful, but obviously doesn't get it either. However, her fail turns to win as she gives the best stupidest explanation of manga I've ever heard. "Graphic novels," she says, "Well, basically, it means that they're backwards."

Off in my little corner, I lol'd.

Oh wait, I was thinking of that because I had to go out and buy myself manga for my birthday. Now if only I could learn to buy them, like, in order.
