Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart

CD soon to be in Play: Tortoise, Millions Now Living Will Never Die

Thanks to Pete Chattaway for the heads up on this one.
In the running for one the worst jobs I have ever done (and that is a loong list) was the time I was a 7-Eleven clerk at the store on Coast Meridian in Port Coquitlam. So I find it interesting that one of the 7-Eleven's in nearby Coquitlam is being converted into a Kwik-E-Mart to help promote the upcoming Simpson's movie. There will be 12 converted 7-Eleven's across North America and the one in Coquitlam will be the only one in Canada, apparently.From Wikipedia:
"In early July 2007, the convenience store chain 7-Eleven converted eleven of its US convenience stores and one in Canada into Kwik-E-Marts for promotion of The Simpsons Movie.The makeover includes products found in the Simpsons, such as Buzz Cola, Squishees (Slurpees served in re-labelled cups), and Krusty-O's cereal (custom-made by Malt-O-Meal). [2] The chain also will use pictures of Simpsons characters to promote 7-Eleven's line of fresh foods, such as placing the face of Homer and his classic "Mmmm . . . sandwich" quip on sandwich wrappers."
By the many arms of Vishnu, I may just have to go.
