30 kg of Pencils
I’d like an eraser, two notepads and 30 kg of pencils, please.
Also: notice the price difference between the first item, a dozen Ticonderogas for £2.69, and the third item, the same product for £19.99.
Startlingly expensive. Yes, I think if I were to tell you how much more expensive it was it would be fair to say that you would be startled. Freely adapted from Chapter 27 of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, by Douglas Adams, 1987.
(By the way, that’s 643.123% more expensive Said Wolfram..)
