Is the demand for The Great Zucchini perfectly inelastic?

Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post thinks he's uncovered a perfectly inelastic demand curve. For The Great Zucchini, DC's leading entertainer of pre-schoolers, "It turns out that the fundamental principles of economics are no match for the fundamental desperation of suburban parents."

Not really, of course, but a beautifully-written, very bittersweet article nonetheless. (Link via Lileks, via Dave Barry.)
