Yesterday's gem of a note from Marcello's Pizza reminded us of this sign we spotted a couple of months ago at Green Apple Books, which reads:
LANCES, SHIELDS, HELMETS, ETC ARE NOT SOLD HERE.
Green Apple deals in books and music. Sadly, jousting equipment is not made available to the general public through us, as our target market has little interest in taking up the sport. Literature on jousting or music emulating the popular sound during the golden age of the joust may be found here though.
Thank for you consideration.
Interesting that Green Apple had enough inquiries on the subject to warrant such a note. Or is it merely a clever way to sell more material on jousting?
