Oh.. I am geeking out over this...
Convenience Stores get 'Simpson' fever
Who needs the Kwik-E-Mart?</p>
Not just Apu -- but you, according to 7-Eleven
As a promotion for the upcoming "The Simpsons" movie, 7-Eleven converted 11 of their U.S. stores into "Kwik-E-Marts," after the fictional Springfield convenience store run by Indian immigrant Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. (click link for rest of article)
In anticipation of the "Simpson's Movie" released this month, 7-11 converted 12 stores to Kwik-E Marts and they are selling some very Simpson products.
Seattle was lucky enough to get one of this transformations.. and I am lucky enough to live a only 3 blocks from the store. With no hard drive and neededing to get some fresh air.. and because I am such a fangirl.. I grabbed my camera and went to take photos.
The store was really busy, and I got a 6 pack of Buzz soda and a Bart cookie. I did not see any Krusty O's (sans the metal Krusty o) or the Radioactive Man comic book ( I will go back) but people were really friendly and tons of people were taking pictures.
Below the cut is my pic spam (there is lots of it) and a few of my favorite Simpson quotes.. :)
I am so smart, I am so smart, S M R T , d'oh S M A R T
Some of you migh recongize 'Seattle Grace" behind the Kwik-E mart

Welcome to Santa's Village, where it's Christmas everyday! Closed on Christmas.
What IS your fascination with my forbidden closet of mysteries?
Silly customer, you cannot hurt a Twinkie.
Last night's "Itchy & Scratchy" was, without a doubt, the worst episode ever. Rest assured that I was on the Internet within minutes, registering my disgust throughout the world.
There's nary an animal alive that can outrun a greased Scotsman.
Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

Kids, just because I don't care doesn't mean I'm not listening.
Oh, yeah, what are you gonna do? Release the dogs? Or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouth and when they bark, they shoot bees at you?
Books are useless! I only ever read one book, "To Kill A Mockingbird" and it gave me absolutely no insight on how to kill mockingbirds! Sure it taught me not to judge a man by the colour of his skin... but what good does *that* do me?
Look, all I'm saying is, if these big stars didn't want people going through their garbage and saying they're gay, then they shouldn't have tried to express themselves creatively.
They only come out in the night. Or in this case, the day.

They think they're so high and mighty, just because they never got caught driving without pants.
*Finally*... Science has joined forces with Revenge.
Just because I don't know doesn't mean I don't understand.
Well, I hope you've learnt your lesson, Lisa: never help anyone.
I've had it with this school, Skinner. Low test scores, class after class of ugly, ugly children...
These candidates make me want to vomit in terror.
Smithers, release the robotic Richard Simmons.
Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose, it's how drunk you get.
