The “Book Off” chain of shops in Japan sells second-hand books, games, CDs and DVDs. Its amusing name leads to pun-laden exchanges such as this:
“Where are you going?”
“Well, there’s no need to be rude. I was only asking.”
(Their sister-store sells hardware, and goes by the even more ridiculous name of “Hard Off.”)
In Book Off’s CD section, they draw attention to popular musicians with signs which say “Pickup Artist.”
This is to recommend that customers “pick up” a copy of the CD but, at first glance, appears to condemn the likes of Sting and David Bowie as womanizing gigolos.
