I even tried using those cardboard glasses with red lenses that let you read the blue words on the back of Honeycomb cereal boxes.

Anybody want to go see the Thermals tonight? Someone without a fake press pass? Or at least a real press pass from a fake press? We'll see you at the door because I can't buy tickets through Ticketmaster.

I understand that Ticketmaster is a business venture owned by larger a business venture and their goal is to make monies for their stockholders. And I understand that to do this they need markup their tickets 25%. It's die amerikanische Weise. Just like it's the American way to be too lazy to drive to the venue's box office.

What I don't understand is why they would make their verification codes unreadable to the degree that the public gives up.

I don't know what the right answers are to the 5 entries I attempted above. I just know I got them wrong and I didn’t try anymore.
