At the shopping mall

bogoSo we’re walking around the mall, and I notice a number of these signs in the window of a store.

“What’s a bogo?” I ask.


“What’s a bogo?.  They have a sale on bogos there.”

“No, that stands for ‘Buy one, get one’.  Buy one of something and you get one of something.”

“Well, of course if I buy something I certainly expect to get it; what’s so special about that?”

“No, if you buy one, you get another one free.”

“Oh, so it’s what we used to call ‘Buy one, get two’.”


“So it should say ‘BOGT sale’.  Although I admit that doesn’t scan.”

Don’t even get me started on tent sales.
