Dear Sears, Darts ≠ Billiards

April 15th, 2008 by Mr. Fanrastic

I was walking around Sears the other day when I saw this:

Not Billiards

Last time I checked, billiards did not involve throwing darts at your opponent. In case any Sears employees are reading this, here is the definition of “billiards” by Dictionary.com:

bil·liards [bil-yerdz]
-noun (used with a singular verb)
Any of several games played with hard balls of ivory or of a similar material that are driven with a cue on a cloth-covered table enclosed by a raised rim of rubber, esp. a game played with a cue ball and two object balls on a table without pockets.

Whoa… they used “hard,” “balls,” “rim,” and “rubber” all in the same sentence. Maybe Sears was confusing it with bum darts…
