Proving once again that there are indeed morons in the world is this scan from a 1982 Apple IIe sales brochure:

[Interior. Well-lit office building.] Larry Anderson, Executive Comptroller of B.G. Enterprises, Inc. (stage right), has spent all morning meticulously entering eleven months of raw sales data into AppleWorks on the firm’s new Apple IIe to plot next year’s business projections. Enter Bob R. Stevens III, VP of Corporate Sales (stage left), strolling carefree through the office while humming a tune…

“Dum-dee doo doo…hey, what does this button do?”


“Holy mother of $%&*balls, Bob. I just spent six hours on that!”

… “So I take it that wasn’t a good sound?”

[Camera cuts away as we hear the normally reserved Larry punching Bob violently in the face.]

    Roflmao, nice.

    But it got me a little confused. Isn’t the idiot guy on stage left…? Idk, I’m not an actor.

  2. RedWolf Says:

    I guess it makes sense that the stages are flipped around.. i.e. from the actor’s point of view. Oh well, I’m not an actor (or a screenwriter) either. 🙂

    P.S. I changed it.

    Yeah, stage left is right from the audience’s perspective. And this was classic. 🙂

    Yes, it takes a nation of idiots to hold us back!
