OFF THE TICKER

No Customer Rebuke for Exalted Megapuke

April 02, 1992| Associated Press

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — The novelty business is booming despite the recession, and that was never more obvious than on April Fools' Day.

"We've got a 14-inch megapuke from England that's selling like crazy," said Mark Burger, owner of San Francisco's House of Magic.

Prices are being affected, though. Burger had to drop the cost of a fake dead rat in a trap from $30 to $25 before people began buying.

But "business is booming for low-end gags," he said.
