As Is

a cute cartoon from "The Electric Company"

Scene: Lumpy older man, shabby orange sedan, gawky teen-age kid. There is a large sign on the car: AS IS

Kid: How much for the car?

Man: Fifty bucks.

Kid: Will you fix the fenders, light and stuff?

Man: See that sign? It says AS IS. That means you get it exactly the way you see it--AS IS. Fifty bucks, and it's yours.

Kid: Five dollars.

Man: Thirty-five.

Kid: Ten.

Man: Thirty.

Kid: Fifteen.

Man. Sold!

At that, the car promptly falls to pieces.

Kid: I want it AS WAS!
