Actual Conversation Overheard In The DVD Department Of Best Buy

Jeffrey Dahmer

Above: not a ventriloquist

(Editor’s note: I swear this conversation took place right in front of me.)

CUSTOMER (to CLERK): Excuse me, could you help me find a movie that stars a particular actor?

CLERK: Sure!  Which actor?

CUSTOMER: Jeffrey Dahmer.

(Pause, then:)

CLERK: Excuse me?

CUSTOMER: You know.  Jeffrey Dahmer.


CUSTOMER: Jeffrey Dahmer! He mostly does comedies.

CLERK: Comedies?

CUSTOMER: Yeah. He’s a ventriloquist, I think.

CLERK: A ventriloquist?


(Pause, then:)

CLERK: Ma’am, I think the person you’re thinking of is Jeff Dunham.


CLERK: Jeff Dunham, not Jeffrey Dahmer.  Jeff Dunham is a ventriloquist. Jeffrey Dahmer ate people.

I don’t believe any staff in Best Buy are that helpful, in my experience it would be “DVDs are over there” (points and walks off)

I’ve seen Jeff Dunham. Jeff Dahmer is funnier. Jeff Dunham makes me want to kill and eat people.

I know no one cares anymore but…
