  1. Oy vey. Where the hell did they come up with the hokey “sellsumer” nomenclature? When will it stop?
    –pedsumer: a person who rides her bicycle to the store
    –podsumer: people who listen to their ipods while shopping
    –nonsumer: a former sellsumer who has nothing left to sell or trade because they lost their job months ago
