Silent Pro 7-Eleven collective launches shock-and-awe counter-offensive

[Photo by Bobby Williams]

Oh, wait.

Bwahahaha. Nice!

In the words of the immortal Torrance Shipman: "Oh, I'll bring it. Don't worry."

Updated:
To be clear, I had nothing to do with this. Just someone's idea of a gag.

You're forgiven, Grieve. No one can resist Slurpee Lite™ Fanta® Sugar-Free Peach Mandarin Flavor.

@ anon 7:15

No.

@ pinhead

Mmmmmmmmmm

How about a rotating tube of meat?

There's a troubling pattern beginning to form, Mister Grieve. First, your questionable appearance at the Cabrini Center demolition ribbon cutting ceremony. Then the prominent placement on the 2013 Santacon Sea of Vomit float down 2nd Ave, and now this.

Delete. Delete. DELETE.

Fast & Convenient. Oh thank Heaven®.

I suspect the guy who was here defending the wonderful goodness and social benefit of 7-11 and condemning the filth and depravity of bodegas.

Nahhh, he had no sense of humor.

The most offensive part is that wandering colon nonsensically thrown in the middle of that sentence...

l.e.s.ter said...

That wandering colon definitely exonerates Grieve. As does the random capitalization.

@ Lou Mannheim from Ken's Kitchen

You're ghostin' us, motherfucker. I don't care who you are back in the world, you give away our position one more time, I'll bleed ya, real quiet. Leave ya here. Got that?

You know, Bobby Williams might have been the one who did this, and took it down right after. :)

The lack of clarification by the Grievestrator pointing to the 7-Eleven was the dead giveaway Grieve was not the creator of this sign. (Other giveaways: The random colon in the middle of the sentence, lack of consistency with the capitalization and 7-Eleven spelled numerically.)

But it does drive home the point the new 7-Eleven is nothing more than a neighborhood joke.

I've been wondering about this so-called "Bobby Williams" for awhile now.

ALWAYS seems to be in the RIGHT spot.....at the RIGHT time.....AMAZING close-up pics of wildlife available NOWHERE else on the 'net.....water main leak, and, BANG, he's right there.....ALWAYS on top of firetruck/cop activities......BLUE squirrels?

I'm thinking that he, himself, is some kinda magical hawk with a bionic camera in one eye, and a brain-chip hooked into the 911 line.
'Course, sometimes I think I'm a St. Bernard wearing a pink-leather angel outfit with neon wings, so I could be wrong.

I was approached to work on this sign, but they could only pay me in NYU Dining Dollars. I declined, though I have plowed through my share of Cajun Pork with Brigade Sauce at Hayden.

It's EV Grieve not E V Grieve. Amateurs.

Bobby 'sledge hammer' Williams, the gigs up!!

Wandering colon?

That would be some Halloween costume.

Or maybe there's just a guy inside it earning minimum wage to hand out flyers for a walk-in clinic.

Wandering colon: that's what happens to one's colon when they eat 7-eleven's taquitos, wings, pizza, etc.

And that's how you use a colon.

Big Brother said...

Don't knock the wandering colon, that's where the petrified 7-Eleven hot dogs come from! Real steamers!

Eden Bee said...

I was out today shopping at my local mom and pop store looking for late hannukah gifts and evgrieve raced in and grabbed me screaming something about 'I LOVE DUANE READE AND YOU BETTER SHOP THERE!" in a threatening manner. Then we went to get some fro-yo and he calmed down a little. I WAS SO SCARED!

MaddMaxx said...

YIKES! I hope they don't sell corn dogs; I'd suspect some undigested little kernels would be found in one of those fresh,rolling-until-eternity, genuine steamers. Holy Smokin' Stool, Bat Man!
