Eisenbrauns’ Apirl Fools Sale

April 1, 2009

Eisenbrauns Aisanbrauns has their April Fools sale up. This year they’ve got an entire alternate page set up complete with an actual poster for purchase.

Among the many humorous amenities that this year’s offering provides is the latest news from MLA concerning the little known letter shortage raging in the publishing industry:

MLA Announces Severe Letter Shortage

The MLA today announced that the ongoing shortage of the letters E and L has begun affecting the publishing industry. “The reading public has always assumed that letters are infinitely available, but that simply isn’t true,” the MLA spokesperson told us. “There has always been an overabundance of the letters A and Q, while the letters E and L have been historically harder to obtain.” The current economic crisis didn’t help, but what really created the current shortage was the new German policy of spelling out all umlauted words. “Consumers have no idea how many letters this new policy is diverting,” the MLA told us.

Check out all the frivolity here.
