That’s right. This….unique deal of the moment is a bona fide promotion at Andersonville’s AlleyCat Comics. Any customer who makes 50 purchases at the store will have the opportunity to throttle an employee in the stomach. As of this writing, no one had stepped forward to take advantage of the promotion. While the idea sounds ostentatious, if nothing else it seems to be an effective style of marketing and a way to gain repeat customers in touch with their inner sadist. The Chicago Tribune and several other local media outlets have already picked up on the story.

Stop by AlleyCat soon, and ask owner Nick Idell about this very special deal.
