    Good Morning To Irony

    | USA | Language & Words

    (I work for a bookstore that publishes a yearly book of children’s stories. The store has these books on display near the cash registrars.)

    Customer: *reads the title out loud*Say Good Night to Literacy.”

    Me: “Actually, it is ‘illiteracy’. The writing is a little funky, and a lot of people have been reading it as literacy.”

    Customer’s Friend: “What does ‘illiteracy’ even mean?”

    Customer: “It means you can’t read.”
