Funny lady has a awesome sales pitch

So i went to the bicycle shop to get a replacement axle since i snapped mine in half.. and the lady was selling a lock to a couple. She pulled one lock out made by schwin or something and showed it to the customers.. When the customers asked what material it was made of she confidently said Kryptonite. Now i know that there is a company called Kryptonite that sells bicycle locks called Kryptonite but that dosnt mean its made from this mythical material.

When i heard her say that i laughed a bit to my self. She saw this and i wanted to say i was laughing about something eles but i think she new damn well.

A Scottish transexual I presume.

The U-locks that were made of Kryptonite were all recalled and replaced a few years ago. In order to protect Superman.

"Krypton ( /ˈkrɪptɒn/ KRIP-ton; from Greek: κρυπτός kryptos "the hidden one") is a chemical element with the symbol Kr and atomic number 36. It is a member of Group 18 and Period 4 elements. A colorless, odorless, tasteless noble gas, krypton occurs in trace amounts in the atmosphere, is isolated by fractionally distilling liquified air, and is often used with other rare gases in fluorescent lamps. Krypton is inert for most practical purposes."

Close, but no banana.
