Default "Meowl's are real-the folder says so!"

I've had pretty stupid customers, really stupid. But this one takes the cake.
SC=Stupid customer (who happens to be of middle aged, looks pretty well educated)

SC comes to register. Brings a folder up to the register

(PICTURE:
)

SC: This animal is real.

ME: No it is not. The artist took a couple of different pictures and merge them into one.

SC: It is too real! (Opens the folder). It says so right here! It's a meowl! The folder says where it lives, blah blah.

ME: (Tries to tell her other wise)

SC: It's real! Read this!

ME: (Gives up. Shakes my head. Rings her stuff. Rings folder last. Pressed total)

SC: The folder is not $10.98!

ME: No it is not. Your TOTAL is $10.98! (ME THINKING: You've got to be kidding me!)

haha, a "meowl", that's awesome. Yet somehow, it doesn't surprise me that someone would think it's real...

Arguing with people that stupid is like trying to teach a pig to roller skate. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

I had a woman (might have posted this somewhere) who brought in some film that had been very poorly processed in some minilab somewhere. Dust all over the negs. She insisted the flecks and marks were angels that were only visible on film, but not to the eye.

Hell, no, I didn't argue with her. I didn't want anyone watching to get confused over which one of us was the nut.

Let me guess - the Breed Apart range is a range of folders with breed-combination images constructed in photoshop and false 'breed information' inside the covers?

exactly. i thought some of them were cute, but others were creepy. wasn't there one with a bull dog and bunny or something? the info inside was fun though. if the animals were real, it think they would be cool.

that reminds me of something my boss told me about a friend of his, who seriously asked him:

'is trolls real?'

asked exactly as typed...

haha, me and my girlfriend saw that thing at walgreens and she thought it was cute. Obviously a fake. There's also one with a monkey's face plastered over a dog.

Well, of course meowls are real. It's just that they're very rare, due to the dwindling numbers of their primary food source, the Jackalope:
