CUSTOMER: Excuse me, ma'am. You don't expect me to believe this is a genuine Louis Vuitton handbag, do you?
SALESPERSON: No sir, your intuition is on the mark. This is an installation by the artist Alfred Steiner, and that is a unique work of art.
CUSTOMER: Right. The recycled cardboard shelves and duct-taped vitrines gave it away. And if I'm not mistaken, Louis Vuitton does not work with Great Stuff Pro® polyurethane spray foam.
SALESPERSON: Not this season, sir.
CUSTOMER: Uh huh. Do you think this blue Cornhole World Championships T-shirt brings out my eyes?
