Unless He Has Become Zombie Kubrick!

I don't usually like it when video stores shelve their movies by director. Kim's Video does that, and though they are one of the best video stores in New York City in terms of selection, I know I would get frustrated with their shelving style if I shopped there. If I can't remember who directed a movie, I won't be able to find it without assistance, whereas if I know it's a comedy and know the title, I can.

We don't shelve our movies by director at my store, but sometimes we get customers who assume we do, such as the woman who came into the store tonight.

She asked, "Where would Stanley Kubrick be?"

It took every ounce of self control not to answer, "In his grave, I imagine."
