Haymarket Laugh Riot

I don’t know how on in the world I end up on some loony email lists, but they’re at least good for the occasional chuckle. For instance, today I got a sales pitch from the far-left book outfit Haymarket Books, proudly hawking the Noam Chomsky book a copy of which Venezuela’s anti-American strongman Hugo Chavez waved at the United Nations last week.

“SPECIAL OFFER: Get Hegemony or Survival before Amazon can ship it and our exclusive Arundhati Roy DVD (not on Amazon)…Buy Hegemony or Survival with the DVD and receive both the book and DVD for just $25 ($6 off) — use coupon code CHOMSKY at checkout.”

A decidedly un-capitalistic sale!
