Overheard today on the floor of a chain electronics retailer...I won't name it to protect the guilty!! Woman: I hate those bars on DVDs. Do you have any DVD players that get rid of them? Sales Rep: Ma'am, you may not be aware of this, but the FCC has recently ruled that all DVDs must now be released in widescreen, and full screen versions without any black bars. They were barely selling any DVDs with black bars anyway. You don't have to worry about anything. I've heard a lot of sales jive in my day, but this takes the cake!! LMFAO!!!!!
