Kwik-E-Mart Opens at USF — Without Apu

You’ll have to wait until next year for the Simpsons ride at Universal Studios Florida, but you can buy your souvenirs now.

Yes, Kwik-E-Mart has opened next to the still shrouded ride building in the space formerly occupied by the BTTF gift shop.

I rushed inside hoping to glimpse Apu, but he wasn’t there and neither were any Squishees! There was, however, a very nice Indian lady behind the counter who assured me that it was early days yet and that eventually Squishees would be on offer. Hope she’s right.

Squishee-less, I turned my attention to browsing. The must-have souvenir is a talking doll of Homer, clad only in a towel. Squeeze his hand and he goes through a small repertoire of catchphrases. Best one? His dancing rendition of “Macho Man.”

It’s an unbelieveably stupid — and utterly irresistible — toy. Yours for $30. Hurry before Apu doubles the prices!

Even if you are super-human and can resist that one, it’s worth visiting the Kwik-E-Mart just for the signage.

    Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

    I am really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

  5. Another thing I’ve really noticed is always that for many people, bad credit is the results of circumstances further than their control. As an example they may have been saddled having an illness so they really have higher bills going to collections. Maybe it’s due to a work loss or the inability to work. Sometimes divorce proceedings can truly send the financial situation in a downward direction. Many thanks for sharing your ideas on this web site.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  7. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  8. I discovered your weblog website on google and test a number of of your early posts. Continue to keep up the very good operate. I just extra up your RSS feed to my MSN Information Reader. Looking for forward to studying extra from you later on!…
