"Well, it's certainly uncontaminated by phones."
At the local Radio Shack, we learn: the phones that are on display without a price marker are thus displayed because they don't actually have any of those models in stock. This includes the model that I wanted, of the options that were presented, which were already not many.
So, okay: what phones DO they have. Guy checks in back. Emerges with two very basic models. I pick one. Guy disappears into the back again. Re-emerges a few moments later and explains that he'd been going to exchange the model he was showing me, which was defective, for a good one; but oops, looks like the recent flooding in the basement has ruined all the phones that were down there, sorry.
I'm sure there is a profound moral to this story, but I'm sure I don't know what.
So, without further ado: the Cheese Shop sketch.
Here is another post about cheese. No phones there either, though.
