    Hmmmmmmm. There's one about twenty minutes away in Mountain View, CA.

    Worth the trip for a Slurpee with a Simpsonized cup?

    My closest one is in LA. There is no way I am going to LA for a stupid slurpee. Why can't they just change one of the thousand 7-11s here in San Diego?? Bitches...

    BUMP!

    I was down in Buena Vista for work today, and happened to see the Kwik-E-Mart. I knew I had to stop in and see it. Pretty cool, actually. They had cans of Buzz Cola, the Slurpees were changed to Squishees, and they had a cardboard standee of Apu behind the counter. All-in-all, pretty cool to see it. Especially because there are only a few in the U.S.

    Time for pics!

    Curse Missouri for not having any 7-11's.

    I saw something on Headline News that some Indian 7-11 workers were highly pissed that they are being stereotyped by their own company. Even though some of the store owners that agreed to convert their stores into Kwik-E-Marts are Indian themselves. The owners' consensus on the bitter feelings was they just need to lighten up.

    If anybody was upset that the Simpsons stereotyped or made fun of them, I would think over half the country would be upset since the Simpsons make fun of EVERYTHING!

    Exactly... in nearly two decades of the Simpsons, there's probably not a single group of any kind that hasn't been stereotyped or parodied at some point. Equal opportunity offending FTW!

    I meant to post about this earlier. I hit the one on the South side of Chicago last weekend.

    My writeup on it is here with my small photo gallery here. Only items I forgot to include in the gallery was the Squishee cup which someone has already provided above. And the images of the Buzz cola I bought.
