Target Is Crazy, And Random Pictures

We love Target. It’s cheap like Walmart but clean, with happy and friendly employees (and customers), and fast checkouts. Sometimes they’re crazy, though. While they’re famous for their buying in bulk penalties, we discovered some odd instant substitutes recently:

Why is that a question?

Another example of crazy target pricing (200 gels is cheaper than 110 gels):

The best part is that Sarah found them in another isle for $5. Identical.

We were in Cereal City so bizarre sites like this were common:

Antivirus being helpful and totally not ruining the Weather Channel, though to be fair, it’s accuracy is about on par with the forecast (zing—weather joke!):

And finally, my favorite item of the month:

That’s right, folks, alcoholic whipped cream.

Oh, and it’s sold with the apples. Naturally.
