Would You Buy a Nook from This Guy?

One of the joys of having an iPhone 4 is the ability to snap shots like these, or perhaps it's a burden - the jury is still out on that.

This character was selling Nooks at the local Barnes and Noble book store the other day. You might remember that Barnes and Noble is close to bankruptcy for reasons that go well beyond the economy.

Back to the Nook Dude.

Dressed in his finest Harry Potter meets Friday the 13th Freddy Sweater I was summoned to his counter top with a witty, "Hey ya wanna see a Nook?" come on line.

Actually, I didn't want to see his Nook, nor did I care for the sweater. In fact I found the whole set up threateningly anti-Nook.

Look folks if you're going to sell some high tech gizmo, especially to passers-by like me, dress your Nook crew for success.

Also let's try a different sales line, like, I dunno, "What, you're still using paper?" anything but what I was subjected to last week.
