Costco has left itself open to fresh ridicule by putting the faux memoir of a cult film character in its 'non-fiction' section - weeks after labelling the Bible fiction.

Staff at a branch near to Los Angeles appeared to not realise that Ron Burgundy: Let Me Off At The Top was a work of comic fiction about Will Ferrell's cinema anchorman.

It comes after the retail chain was forced into a humbling apology after a Southern Californian pastor tweeted a photo showing copies of the Bible labelled as fiction.

How do we not know it is all part of the plan to highlight his film? I trust nobody these days/

It would seem to prove how intellectually inferior Costco workers are; likely as not Obama voters. :Odance:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
