I'M IN YOUR KWIK-E-MART DRINKIN' YOUR SQUISHEE!!

Mmmmm...  good squishee.

I've got pictures of my trip to the local Kwik-E-Mart posted to my facebook profile.  Sadly, there were no cool products (Krusty O's, buzz cola, etc) to be had.

For the new Simpson's movie, 7-11 is "going with the joke", and redecorating a few of their stores as Quick-E-Marts, like Sabu ran in The Simpson's.

This includes Krusty-O's, and donuts with pink frosting an sprinkles.  They look disgusting, quite frankly.  And renaming their "Slurpy" as a "Squishie".

The only Canadian one is in, of all places, Coquitlam BC -- just about 15 minutes away.

Thanks Mrs. Wayne. I'll check it out tonight before heading home. Must be interesting.

It's really hilarious/surreal because it's called Squishie on the Simpsons in order to avoid trademark problems with the Slurpee it's based on. And now this.

It's also surreal that Denman is passing through there on the way home due to Wayne's recommendation.

On the other hand, when Wayne went to meet Denman, there was no one there.

Hitchcock on the other hand would say that both of them WERE there.

Meaning pregnancies, birth, schooling, then work experience, maybe move around a little, and voila -- you've got a regional community?

The amount of forethought involved is staggering.

You're talking about the best city in the world to live:

Personally, I'm very fond of Pittsburgh, myself.  Vancouver's too cold too much of the time -- though Global Warming is taking care of some of that.

Vancouver is the warmest city in Canada.  We rarely get below zero in the winter.

Cold is not the issue, wet is the issue.

'humidity' on the ground is preferable to that in the air.

but it's really overcastness that drives people to booze and suicide ideation and programming (not necessarly in that order).

Wow, you're just making Vancouver SO attractive.  Have you considered a career in Advertising?

And this is the best the planet has to offer?  Now *I'M* depressed.

Yeah, but when you get a nice hot sunny day clear day. You realise how great this city can be.  Maybe its because its hidden behind cloud cover most of the time.

"Vancouver is the world's most desirable place to live, according to a new survey, while Papua New Guinea's Port Moresby is at the other end of the scale."

ROTFL. I've been to Port Moresby. It's not so bad. There are some really nice places in Papua New Guinea for diving and it's not a touristy place either. Just gotta watch out for them cannibal tribes you know?

Does that really look like "The WORST city in the world" according to CNN? Or is CNN just full of shit? Offhand, I can think of 25,000 cities that are worse than Port Moresby. Moresby is pretty nice actually.

Vancouver is a fine place too, but only on that one day a year when the sun comes out. The rest of the year, it's true, you want to kill yourself and spend hours each day thinking up ways you might do the deed.

Well apparently it's got some insane rates of rape, murder, robbery and kidnapping and the city is run by roving violent gangs:
