If you've seen it on the news, you know what I'm talking about. A couple of 7-Eleven stores underwent (is that a word?) some changes to make themselves look like the Kwik-E-Mart parodies that make fun of them on the Simpsons. During lunch today, on a particularly slow Friday, we shot off to spend a few minutes there.
Here are the pictures. (Sorry...I have no idea what happened to the pictures. I will try to add them later. I have them on the server somewhere I'm sure.)
On the way there, right in front of Disney's Animation Studio in Burbank, we saw these two straight co-workers looking fantastically gay. I thought it was funny because they weren't and the rider in the back was embarrassed. He kept looking away. :)
I was in the back seat and saw this church when we drove by so I quickly snapped a picture of it. I thought it looked interesting.
I immediately recognized it in the distance.
There was a line. But there was plenty to see whilst we waited.
They put this foam material over half of the store to mimic the cartoony look of the cartoon.
Fans of the show came in all shapes and sizes and....
They had some of the cartoons more famous products available for purchase.
Of course it wouldn't be a Kwik-E-Mart without useless products like Bobble-heads and Monopoly.
They even hired look-alikes!
They ran out of Buzz Cola and Krusty O's.
There were a lot of these guys around the store.
Remember that episode?
They even changed their uniforms!
They had the pink donuts! I bought three! Donuts, is there nothing they can't do?
[Edit: I found the picture that inspired that comment above, enjoy.]
I had one. (It was a Slurpee. Shhhh, don't tell anyone!)
They had a Hamburger-Dog. Guess which one it is. I don't know if it was a normal 7-Eleven product or if they were just the ones that fell on the floor.
With that we left with our overpriced unhealthy snacks in hand and headed back to work.
You can tell its fire season when you see these parts in the mountain brush. The fire line keeps the fires from spreading, sometimes.
We were kinda in a rush and went faster than this.
On our way back we pass the Miller brewery.
Go ahead and drool guzzlers.
Wish you were here!
Thank you for visiting my blog once again! There was a security guy at the exit saying the cherished line, "Thank you come again!"
