A trip to the Kwik E Mart

We took Sunday off from recording and looked for a few ways to spend our day. Pretty much the only thing all of us could agree on was to take a visit to the Kwik-E-Mart.

I don't know if you folks have heard about this, but for promotion of the upcoming Simpsons movie, whatever hot shot movie company is involved changed a bunch of 7-Elevens into Kwik-E-Marts. It seems like such an elaborate promotional tool, so we had to check it out. Lucky for us there are 2 of them in the city of angels.

The first thing we saw when approaching the Kwik-E-Mart was this big sign:


...We were all saying, 'holy crap, this is going to be awesome!" For some reason, we were super excited to check this place out, yet its magic would remain untapped for a little while as there was a line wrapping around the side of the building.
You can see all the people waiting to get in here as well as Bart and Millhouse chillin' on the roof undoubtedly drinking super concentrated squishees.

This security guard was awesome. He managed the line of people cued up to get squishees and said things to exiting people like, "Ooh little boy, you brought me a donut." and "You make sure you don't steal anything, or i will hunt you down buddy!" We waited in line with the rest...


Once we were allowed to enter, Jeff made a B-line to grab some Buzz Cola. He pounded a sixer on site, then grabbed a few for later. Lucky for us, there was no Duff on the premises.

There were also the donuts that Homer always drools over. They were pretty intense on the stomach. They were glazed and frosted and now I know why Homer drools over them.





Jeff and I moseyed over to the Squishee machine. Its great how much better a slurpee tastes when you plaster a bunch of Simpsons characters on the side of it.




Outside, we all gathered around some El Barto graffiti and sipped our bevvys. There was a gentleman with his kids outside kind enough to take our photo. I accidentally cursed in front of his youngins', apologized, and he forgave me. Then, his kids asked what the graffiti said and he told them, "well girls, that's El Barto and he thinks Skinner stinks!"

it was a great way to spend a Sunday.

how come nobody has commented on the handsome devil posing with you in front of the Skinner Stinks graffiti?

I guess I should start. That guy is dashing!
