The Devil’s Superstore
By Ed Goldman
Satan is alive and has designed the in-store wayfinding system for IKEA.
Authorities say he also may have taken a crack at the following:
a. Suggesting routes on Google maps;
b. Writing the tiny disclaimers on two-page magazine ads for prescription-only medications (“Call your doctor if you never had eczema but wanted to”); and
c. Creating the thesaurus embedded in my computer, which can rarely find synonyms for everyday words. For example, I just looked up eczema and the response was “No results were found.”
