Simpson, Eh?

There are two important facts you should know about my home, Winnipeg:

1) For seven years in a row, Winnipeg has been the official "Slurpee Capital of the World". We drink more Slurpees than anyone on Earth... no kidding.

2) Winnipeg also has the distinction of being the birthplace of Homer Simpson. Yup, creator Matt Groening confirmed the fact. He even had an episode of the Simpsons take place here:

So it should come as no surprise that we here are excited to find the following:

While picking these cups, straws, "Buzz Cola", and Krusty O's cereal, the clerk behind the counter was very sweet, helping me out with all the loot.

Man, I am soooo glad I didn't do my Apu impersonation.

In the nick of time I read the his name badge.

"Manu" would not have been impressed, methinks.

Me and the gang hangin' at the theatre.
