  1. The AB spray is snake oil. I used it on a couple of cimmerians and now I have to sit on a donut pillow.

  2. Those slushy-spinner parts look suspiciously like a dual flux capacitor setup. Different, sure, but maybe this is an updated version?

    And at the time travel store, no less! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

  3. I went there next week and they weren’t open yet. I’m running low on Dead Languages and need to stock up. I guess I’ll try again last month and see if I can catch them open.

  4. I saw something about this a few days from now. There’s sister “stores” around the country, like Brooklyn Superhero Supply and The Space Traveler’s Mart in Chicago. It’s such a great idea to both fund the writing programs hidden inside and also attract and inspire kids. Damn, them McSweeney’s cats are creative!

    BTW, did you notice the Time Freezy Hyper Slush has a “Bubonic Plague” flavor? Fresh squeezed from rat-kings.

  5. You’re right, how presumptuous of me. I forgot about the berry bushes that sprout from rat-kings’ mass graves. Them’s good eatin’.
