On a recent trip to Best Buy to spend some gift cards, I overheard a mother and son talking to a clerk about a few games. It was awesome.

MOTHER: You want to get what game? Tell the lady.

7-YEAR-OLD BOY: Left 4 Dead 2.

CLERK: We’re all sold out.

7-YEAR-OLD BOY: What about Modern Warfare 2?

MOTHER (flustered): It’ll go on sale later, let’s go.

Adam’s Empty Haul

By Toronto Thumbs Staff - January 3rd, 2010

It’s Saturday night. Adam is playing Deertase 2: Reindeertase and upon finishing each fight, is opening a lot of empty treasure chests.

SHAUN: Wow, you’re getting a lot of empties.

ADAM: Yeah, ’cause you’re a dick!
