I've got a buck right here. Please send my record right away!

Sadly, we have SOLD OUT of this item, Mr. Ern. A dealer in Albuquerque just bought the last six copies. We ordered a fresh batch from the pressing plant, but their voicemail indicates they're on staff retreat at Club Sleepy Lagoon. Please be patient for your platter pending re-stock. Hold that buck. Do not squander it on fetishistic self-indulgences.

Curse the luck!
