As Isa 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.
At that, the car promptly falls to pieces.
Kid: I want it AS WAS!
