ATLAS SHRUGGED DVD Recalled Because Of Ideological Error

Yes, I know the whole goddam book and movie was an ideological error and should have been delivered to Montag for, er, processing. Read on.

Badass Digest

Remember Atlas Shrugged, the blink-and-you-miss-it adaptation of Ayn Rand’s unwieldy novel of ultimate evil? The film has hit DVD (which means you can attempt to watch it in your own home, where you have easy access to booze and razors), but the producers are recalling the remaining copies on store shelves (probably all of them) because of an error on the packaging.

The error is in this sentence. See if you can figure out what it is:

“AYN RAND’s timeless novel of courage and self-sacrifice comes to life…”

Yes, the word ‘self-sacrifice.’ Seriously. [...]

Heh. Bungled that one, din'tcha?

The new covers will read:

“AYN RAND’s timeless novel of rational self-interest comes to life…”

The company has a web page where you can register to get a new version of the cover. Oy.

Oy is right. Due to the slightly sub-fantastic popularity of that turkey, the recall is projected to cost upwards of ten dollars.
