I guess nobody wants to see covert homosexuals being ‘outed’ in uncivilized ways.

It only said ‘should be’… it didn’t say we can’t.

It is strictly forbidden to bargain with prices like π or √2.

OK, then, I’m going to the “camping” store to buy some eye makeup and a feather boa.

I don’t think an irrational person would listen to a sign.
This sign will probably not reach it’s target audience.

Just because you’ve come out of the closet doesn’t mean you
can go all crazy with the credit card.

If you don’t shop rationally, all our Economic theories will crumble and it will be the end of civilization.

They have rational shopping? I don’t think we’re in eBay anymore, Toto.

Selling should be rational, too. We expect the shop assistants to comply!

Is it a department store? Because it would be the only one where I’d feel safe and relaxed doing my Christmas shopping… 🙁

In memorial: On that day when two TVs were unceremoniously outed irrationally. Black Friday ’78– we will never forget.

Even the Japanese is screwed up… maybe it should be dubbed “rihongo.” 理性を失うはずです means that you’re SUPPOSED to lose reason.
