Humor me here for a moment, will you?
I know you will.
That’s why I love you so.
How American am I? Today I stop off at the grocery store after work to buy sliced turkey breast to make sandwiches to take to work for lunch, and I happily realize that this particular grocery store has SKIPPY peanut butter for the totally not low, low price of $5 US in a teensy-weensy 320 gram (i.e. 11 oz.) jar.
Oh, how I miss my Costco sizes: 64 ounces of peanuty goodness–that’s nearly TWO KILOS for you Euro folks of SUPER CHUNK fun!
But…as usual I digress.
Thank you Conad (which really is quite an unfortunate name, IMHO, if you think about how much it sounds like gonad, right?) for putting the radio station on your store speakers, because, guess what, folks? By some freak of nature,
Mickelmack Macklemore has made it big over here in Italy with his FABULOUS HIT SINGLE “Thrift Shop.” No, seriously people, this nonsense is sheer genius. Watch the video and I dare you to disagree with me.
And why yes, yes I am from Seattle, thank you VERY much for asking! We are a rare breed, are we not?
ONE HUNDRED NINETY FOUR AND A HALF MILLION VIEWS CAN’T BE WRONG – P.S. “NSFW”
But, honest to God, 1:26 and the deer sweater? Yes, friends, this is the Goodwill I know and love, and faithfully patronized for the times when I only had twenty dollas in my pockeeeeht.
And the bestest, I mean super bestest ever part of this, is that while the sweet guy slicing my turkey breast is asking me “Qualcos’altro, cara?” I’m rocking out to the lyrics “THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME” without any weird blips or silences to block out the F bomb.
So, grocery shopping to the funky tune of uncensored Macklemore in Rome because their four letter words are actually five letter words (cazzo for one, since you asked), so they don’t censor our four letter words?
Good times, my friends…good times indeed.
