Not parodiable does not equal "can't include in the polka". Those are two different things

There's a guy on this forum who was handed the album, and he went to check out and the worker's screen said they couldn't sell it. That's why people are starting to try self checkout. It's worth a try. You don't lose anything.

right. so IF you are able to obtain a physical copy of the album, you would need to either straight-up steal it, or scam the register system by scanning a different disc first.
taste is only something if it is yours.

My Target doesn't have self-checkout, but my local Wal-Mart does. I know I've bought items there before which were flagged for one reason or another. The screen said that I needed an employee to override something and the light went on calling a cashier to help. Probably something similar would happen with this if you tried self-checkout.

Well I mean you'll lose time if you place any value on that, maybe gas in your car if you have to drive any distance, there just isn't any way at all to override the POS system. Does Target even use self checkouts in any of their stores? I've never seen them.

Don't blame him, it's the only way his generation can actually communicate.

Agreed and I tried to immediately delete it but it wouldn't let me.
