MJ Does Seattle

Bitches, I’m back from Seattle.

Yes, Frobi, you were right. I’d “fucked off on hols again.”

First of all, I visited Mecca … the Archie McPhee store.

And you know what that means, don’t you? That I stocked up on fabulous prizes to award to you in future competitions!

Then on to the Kwik-E-Mart for snacks…

This Kwik-E-Mart is one of 12 7-Eleven stores in North America to be transformed into the convenience store made famous on The Simpsons TV show. The stores will revert to their normal appearance at the end of July but in the meantime, here’s what it looks like inside…

And just when I thought the day couldn’t get any better, I bumped into none other than our Piggy!…

  1. Did you stock up with Simpsons goodies to flog on Ebay? there getting mega bucks on there.

    Piggy scrubs up well doesn't he?

    Yay first!

  2. Wasn't there a Kurt Cobain memorial you could have taken a picture of? Seattle's not all laughs, you know.

    Can you get me a pair of those trousers the pig's wearing? I presume they've got an elasticated waistband, ideal for the middle aged man.

  3. FROBI: I had to give up all my Simpsons paraphernalia when Customs did the cavity search.

    GEOFF: I'll add stretch trousers to my shopping list next time I'm headed south.

    Are there any bladder control products I can purchase for you as well?

  4. outstanding! at least some franchise holders had the courage to do it in his hometown! no one out in the county will...out here they're afraid of smacks of communism.
    didja see the hendrix memorial? didja? didja?

  5. FN: The Hendrix Memorial? All in good time, my dear. You don't want me to blow my whole wad in one shot here, do you?

    There's so much to see and do in Seattle...the Fremont Troll for one.

    And Seattle's oldest gay bar full of Seattle's oldest gays. I can't remember the name of this fine dive, er, drinking establishment as, once again, I may have been overserved.

  6. Ah, so Archie McPhee is responsible for the bag of plastic flies...

  7. Didn't they have a Loaf N Jug?

    Shouldn't that pig be wearing Grunge? He looks like he should be at Mardi Gras or Fire Island.

    And finally why aren't they called D'OH!nutz?

  8. Cunt.

    'Todays pastries at tomorrows prices'?????

    What fucking mong thought that line up?

  9. "MJ Does Seattle"


    A molested jest?

    *feels sorry for jests eveywhere*

  10. Is there a Simpsons movie out then? Just wondered...

  11. Mmmmmm, Kwik-E-Mart.

    Never heard of Archie McPhee. Ta for the link. Now I can make my Christmas list.

  12. IVD: I need look no further than your warty wand if I’m looking for flies.

    That thing attracts all sorts.

    HE: Why aren’t they called “D'OH!nutz?” Excellent question!

    Have you considered a career in corner shop marketing?

    PIGGY: They really should hire Homo Escapeons for their marketing team.

    And I think you look darling in that pillbox hat.

    SID: At least I’m not molesting jesters, Kunty Klown.

    MUTLEY: Stay tuned. News at eleven.

    MAIDY: You can get me Pee Guy for Christmas. They were out of stock when I was there.

  13. seattle is SLAP FULL of those plasticized pigs. whats the dealio? we saw them everywhere...wallingford,downtown, queen anne...all in different bizarre outfits. the one across the street from the SAM hit on me.

  14. FN: He hit on you? What a pig! Did you go home with him?

    “Pigs on Parade” in Seattle is one of a long line-up of similar public sculpture exhibits including Spirit Bears and Orcas here in Vancouver and Moose in Toronto. Remember Chicago’s “Cows on Parade?”

    Next up: Slugs in Sumas.

  15. I'm shocked to see how classy Seattle is.

    That pig is at the hight of fashion isn't it?
