Movies, we got movies for sale, get your movies!

A guy walks into the library (no, it's not the start of some pervy joke) and decides he's going to hand out his flyers in the library.

I'm not sure where I was, but I'm pretty strict about this because people will try to post ANYTHING in the library. By anything, I mean, A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G. I've had people want to post sales ads for cars, wanted posters for missing kids, flyers with "Have you seen my baby daddy" scrawled all over them with a photocopy of his driver's license on it, flyers advertising home sales, car sales, day care services and even "escort services."

The security guard intercepted the guy and told him that he couldn't put the flyers in the library. The guard I have is a smart guy and perceptive and was 100% correct.

When the guard told the guy he couldn't hand these out, the guy got pissy.

"It's my biz-naz! Y'all can get some good deals on movies."

The guard explained to the man that he was soliciting and that isn't allowed. The guard further explained the movies are obviously bootlegs and that's not really legal.

My most favorite part of this is not that these are bootlegs, not that they guy was peddling them in the library, but the price structure. Look carefully!


  1. I like the part where his name is "Monster"

  2. Haha, I was half expecting them to be pornos!

  3. Awesome... what is he thinking. Oh wait - he probably doesn't think. Way to go Monster :)

  4. I was a bit disappointed that he wasn't selling porn. It would have really put this flyer into one of the 'best things ever left the library' list. But, really, nothing says "credibility" like the name Monster, especially when your "3 for $10" rate is more money than your single movie price. I guess he should have read that "Idiot's Guide to Starting Your Own Business Book."
