In my last compelling and riveting shopping post, I DO NOT heart grocery shopping, I introduced you all to the pornographic cheese buttler:
With a heavy heart, this blogger is sad to share with you the news that our beloved friend PCB has been forcibly removed from the local Kroger. What makes this news even more difficult for me to accept is this: I can't help but feel that I may have had a role in his removal.
I'm sure it will come as no surprise to any of you that this blog is ready by literally TENS of people every single day, and the PCB buzz that post must have created on the Internet forced the hands of Kroger executives. For this, I am deeply sorry. Also, I may need to start shopping exclusively at HEB, because I get the stink eye from the Kroger store manager every time I pull out my blackberry.
I attempted to interview several store employees as to the whereabouts of PCB. Alert meat department employee "Skeeter" (not his real name) made the following comment: "Yeah...(guffaw)...They made us take him down." When asked the whereabouts of PCB, store management would only give me vague references to wine vendors and store rotations. I smell a cover-up!
Jeeves, a long time friend and confidant of PCB was still too visibly shaken to give an interview, choosing instead to drown his sorrows in a delightfully fruity yet cheap Merlot:
There are unconfirmed reports that Jeeves was later reprimanded for making lewd and suggestive remarks to the night stocker in the feminine hygiene aisle. It's been a rough couple of weeks for him...
PCB's replacement, Woodrow Brimley (rumored to be the younger brother of Wilford Brimley of "Cocoon" and "Di-a-bee-tus!" fame) had only this to say: "Cry me a river lady! I'm 3 feet tall, bald, wearing white panty hose, and I've got a bolt stuck through my hand! Now leave me alone, I'm trying to pimp some Yellowtail (that's what she said)."
On a happier note, I was able to purchase a box of the new shiny m&m candies. My opinion? Meh...They taste much like the original peanut m&m's. The only difference being that there are almonds instead of peanuts and I got the strange sensation that a couple of Polly Pocket shoes were dropped into the vat during the candy coating phase. Weird. Also, we're out of crackers again.
Goodnight Pornographic Cheese Buttler, where ever you are!
