    You have to sleep in the record store? I guess I've stayed in far worse places....
    Is there a record butler? A cleaning concierge? Take-out from Lugers? Flannel-shirted bearded bartenders making bespoke hand-crafted cocktails from farm to table ingredients?
    Maybe I shouldn't enroll....

    So a guy sees a poster in the window of a travel agency- Europe by Boat-Only $25!
    Intrigued, the guy walks in the door of the agency, and says, "That Europe offer? Is that true? The agent responds: "Yes, of course. But capacity is limited." The guy says, "I'll take it!" The agent pulls a club out from behind her desk and conks him on the head. Next thing he knows, he is in a row boat, somewhere out in the middle of the Atlantic.
    As he struggles to reach consciousness, he sees another person in the boat with him, rowing vigorously. He says, "Oh my god, I should have known better. That offer was just too good to be true. I hope, when we get across the water, they at least fly us home."
    The other fellow, rowing, says, "They didn't last year."
