Memes wanna be free


[Click to engorge]

Am I missing something about this ad? Once a person receives the meme known as "strip checkers," is it really necessary to spend $10.95 to purchase a special checkers board?

And that's $10.95 in 1972 dollars. As we learn at the Online Inflation Calculator:

"What cost $10.95 in 1972 would cost $52.66 in 2006."
