Kwik-E-Mart, Las Vegas July 3, 2007

Posted by Lipstick in Ducks, Man Laws, Terrorist Hemorrhoids.

I checked out the converted 7-Eleven this morning in Henderson and it’s pretty cute.  Everybody was having fun, taking pictures and buying lots of Krusty O’s.





They really got into the spirit inside:




More after the break:






1. mesablue - July 3, 2007

Mmmm, donuts.

Red donuts?

Ketchup flavored?

2. Lipstick - July 3, 2007

No, it was pink frosting with sprinkles.

Very tempting, but I got a hot dog for breakfast instead.

3. eddiebear - July 3, 2007


4. daveintexas - July 3, 2007

That’s pretty funny.

5. skinbad - July 3, 2007

That is a bargain. 7-11 usually sells three for the price of four.

6. lauraw - July 3, 2007

I wonder what an unopened box of krusty-O’s is going to be worth in twenty years.

7. ace - July 3, 2007

Henderson, huh?

If CSI is telling me the truth, you have like 800 murders there a month, and 300 more accidental deaths due to erotic asphyxia.

8. daveintexas - July 3, 2007

Aren’t you concerned about erotic asphyxia?

*whips off sunglasses*

Everyone should be concerned about that.


9. Lipstick - July 3, 2007

Well, they were selling some jumbo sized hot dogs that looked a little scary. . .

10. skinbad - July 3, 2007

And half of them involve Lady Heather.

11. skinbad - July 3, 2007

Um. Number 10 refers to number 7. Not to jumbo sized hotdogs. Yikes.

12. eddiebear - July 3, 2007


Well, you never know.

13. Eddie - July 3, 2007

So, when you buy a donut, can you put gummy bears on it like Homer does?

14. Anonymous - July 3, 2007

Cool. Is there a way to find out if there’s one of these in your area?

15. daveintexas - July 3, 2007

Anon – you can check here


The product promotions are supposed to be in all of the company op stores.

16. Lipstick - July 3, 2007

I didn’t see any gummy bears near the donuts, but I wasn’t really looking for any.

18. Michael - July 3, 2007


The traffic spike from your Ace-0-Lanche has started. Check the Sitemeter here.

19. mesablue - July 3, 2007

Ace-o-lanches everywhere!

Mine is just a Lauraw-o-lanche, though. 😉

And, Nice Deb got a Slub-o-lanche earlier.


20. mesablue - July 3, 2007

And, I’m outa here.

Have a nice 4th everyone!

I know I will…

21. Lipstick - July 3, 2007

Holy crap. I feel like Steve Martin when the new phone book arrived.

22. wenmidd - July 3, 2007

DOH!..the only time I regret living in Central NC.

23. wenmidd - July 3, 2007


24. Michael - July 3, 2007

Holy Cow, Lipstick, I just noticed that you’re now linked under “Headlines” at the top of the page on Hot Air.

Girl, you’ve hit the big time.

*Waits for Instapudit Glenn Reynolds, a hot guy who would not be caught dead with his hands in a paraffin bath*

25. Sinistar - July 3, 2007

Neat. I just wish the Simpsons was allowed to die with some dignity, instead of Fox trying to draw blood from a stone.

26. PattyAnn - July 3, 2007

Michael, I just came here from HotAir’s link.
Oh, and it helps if you say Glenn is *hot*.

27. Michael - July 3, 2007

Just checked the Innocent Bystanders All-Knowing Dashboard™.

In the last hour, the three blogs known to have linked this article have generated hits as follows:

Hot Air: 202

Ace of Spades HQ: 172

Dave in Texas: 0

I’m sure the Dave-o-lanche will pick up momentum later this evening.

28. Sinistar - July 3, 2007

Heh, I got a nice little Ace-O-Lanche yesterday. A whole 60 visits in an hour. Heh. Kinda pitiful compared to what IB is getting.

29. daveintexas - July 3, 2007

Lipstick, check your old email and send me the one I can’t remember to use because I’m a moron.

30. Sinistar - July 3, 2007

Oh, and I visiteed through both Ace and HA! So there’s a little traffic!

31. daveintexas - July 3, 2007

Links from AoS and Hot Air.

I predict 17 ejaculations for Michael. Better start with the fluids big guy.

32. S. Weasel - July 3, 2007

Hey. Bit of a Weasellanche, too!

Shut up.

Shut up.

33. Sinistar - July 3, 2007

Oh, that reminds me, do the IB crew mind if I put you in my blogroll?

34. Michael - July 3, 2007

Oh, and it helps if you say Glenn is *hot*.

Thanks, Patty Ann. I’ve edited my comment #24 above in accordance with your advice.

35. dri - July 3, 2007

“300 more accidental deaths due to erotic asphyxia.”
That’s when you get aroused when you strangle some one right? I feel better about doing it now that I know there is a name for it.

36. Sinistar - July 3, 2007

I think its actually getting off while *being* strangled dri. Could be wrong…

37. dri - July 3, 2007

Sin, either way I’m all up in that…

38. skinbad - July 3, 2007


I’m sure the IB crew doesn’t mind if you do (blogroll, not strangulation). Michael will even return the favor at some point. But first you’ll have to listen to him tell you how he skillfully drove over a buck deer whose antlers could have done serious damage to his undercarriage. It’s a small price to pay.

39. Eric in Palm Harbor - July 3, 2007

Very Funny
Muy Divertido

40. nicedeb - July 3, 2007

Oh, well no wonder my Ace-o-lanche dried up. They’re all coming HERE, NOW.

Nice pictures, Lipstick.

41. Michael - July 3, 2007

Oh, that reminds me, do the IB crew mind if I put you in my blogroll?

No, Sinistar, not at all. However, IB is a Commenters Site, not a blog, so you may get complaints from your readers regarding the absence of blogging here.

42. nicedeb - July 3, 2007

There! I just came back via Dave In Texas.

The DIT-O-Lanche has officially begun.

43. daveintexas - July 3, 2007

I bumped this for the visitors.

48. Donny - July 4, 2007

Great pics!

49. bovanne - July 4, 2007

I’ve never really slept with a goat.

As far as you know.

Funneh… 🙂

50. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

Gee bovanne, that was almost like, a funny ethnic joke.

Wait, I was wrong. It wasn’t even slightly funny.

51. abu ameerah - July 4, 2007

We’ve got ’em in the D.C. Metro area as well…lol

52. bovanne - July 4, 2007

daveintexas, what actually made you angry, or so? The extraction of the indian roots or the insertion of the jewish ones? 🙂

53. doc - July 4, 2007

DiT is not angry, you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.

54. Lipstick - July 4, 2007

I blame the Scots for the three for the price of three sign.

They’re so frrrugal. . .

55. doc - July 4, 2007

Yeah. Scots, Lootherans, and Prezbiterians – cheap bastages all.

56. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

bovanne, sometimes when people don’t see the humor, they’re bored. They don’t always get mad.

Try projecting less.

57. Michael - July 4, 2007

Yeah. Scots, Lootherans, and Prezbiterians – cheap bastages all.

Now I’m pissed off. Lutherans are not cheap!!! There is no stereotype about Lutherans being cheap.

Boring, drunk, legalistic, bad food, quasi-Catholic, maybe you could accuse us of these things. But not cheap.

(However, I did wait for Geoff to pick up the tab when I met him in Denver.)

58. bovanne - July 4, 2007

As far as I learnd and observed untill now, bored people are usually passive.

59. Michael - July 4, 2007

As far as I learnd and observed untill now, bored people are usually passive.

Dave has that passive-aggressive personality that is so annoying.

60. geoff - July 4, 2007

Michael, you ought to go ahead and edit Comment #49. Dave’s right – that’s lame.

61. Jytrid - July 4, 2007


62. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

I’m only passive-aggressive if I don’t have admin rights.

Cool. These are great pictures.

66. Moofey - July 4, 2007

We have a converted 7-11 close to where I live as well. I haven’t checked it out yet though.

67. cowgalutah - July 4, 2007

Man, I’m heading to Vegas to see this for myself. Great stuff!

68. Michael - July 4, 2007

Remember folks, safety comes first when celebrating today. If you need any encouragement, read Aberclay12’s heart-rending story of how she suffered a sex change due to the careless handling of fireworks in the junkal region by her formerly male self.

69. Lipstick - July 4, 2007


What the??!! That’s just weird.

70. Michael - July 4, 2007

I thought she was hilarious.

But then, I’m weird too.

71. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

Well that was odd.

72. bovanne - July 4, 2007

Oh well, it seems that the edit button has fallen into the wrong hands. This is what happends when dumb masses get a grip of power, even if that means blog-administration. 🙂 Edit this two, and afterwards make children so that we’ll have more of you in the future. The future’s bright, the future’s orange, red-orange.

I like to eat all the strawberry from the neapolitan first!

73. urbnerd416 - July 4, 2007

Haha, I love this. ^^

74. Michael - July 4, 2007

This is what happends when dumb masses get a grip of power, even if that means blog-administration.

Pretty much everyone here admits to being a moron, so your condescension is falling on deaf ears.

FYI, bovanne, I’m the site owner, and the only person who can ban you outright. My policy is to maintain IB as a congenial, troll-free zone. We don’t mind some friendly snark; in fact, we do that all the time. But I have no tolerance for people who show up just to be disruptive. If that’s your game, there’s a million other blogs where you can play.

Hope I’m making myself clear.

75. bovanne - July 4, 2007


76. Michael - July 4, 2007

77. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

benedictus domini nose

78. Michael - July 4, 2007

Dave, if you keep making fun of my big nose in Latin, I’ll ban your ass too.

79. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

Your nose is Spartan.

(that oughta work)

81. geoff - July 4, 2007

Pretty much everyone hear…is falling on deaf ears.


82. Michael - July 4, 2007

benedictus domini nose

BTW, Dave, a little research reveals that:

1. Athough the phrase sounds to me vaguely like it should mean “blessings of God upon us,” apparently it is actually gibberish. I can’t find any of those words in a Latin dictionary.

2. You are the #1 google search result for that phrase, because you left the same comment at IMAO in April of 2005.

83. Lipstick - July 4, 2007

Cool, we got a link in Portuguese!

84. seathe - July 4, 2007

i want to go to one of those kwik-e-marts but they dont have one around here were i live..

85. BrewFan - July 4, 2007

So, does the use of Hebrew give cover to the Jewish remark? I’m thinking not.

86. geoff - July 4, 2007

Heh. Michael still hasn’t corrected #74.

87. Bartlihoon - July 4, 2007

I’m completely baffled.

88. Michael - July 4, 2007

I’m completely baffled.

That’s because Dave deleted a comment that included ethnic slurs, so the thread does not make a lot of sense if you missed that.

89. geoff - July 4, 2007

Ah, you finally got it. As I hinted in #81, I think the “deaf ears” metaphor was your undoing.

90. Michael - July 4, 2007



Now I’m baffled. I knew all along that Dave deleted what used to be #49 (while I was offline), as you suggested in #60.

91. brockhenderson - July 4, 2007

LOL, that is a riot. Hope the people that own the Simpsons don’t file a trademark infringement complaint.

92. geoff - July 4, 2007

No, I’m talking about your comment #74.

93. Michael - July 4, 2007

Still confused.

94. Bartbud - July 4, 2007

I don’t get it, either.

I missed the ethnic slur comment.
Is that “bovanne” a romanian, or something?

95. Michael - July 4, 2007

Geoff, maybe you could publish a chart to let us know what you are talking about.


96. Bartbud - July 4, 2007

geoff must be referring to that pic of the doberman pinscher in your comments.

97. Michael - July 4, 2007

Nah, I think Geoff is just screwing with me. He’s pissed because I stuck him with the tab in Denver.

98. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

“benedictus domini nose” is from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

99. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

actually, the more I think about it, benedictus domini nose is a perversion of the latin foisted upon the planet by the notorius Noze Brothers of Baylor University. I think it appeared in a publication, or perhaps a chant from the top of Baylor Hall.


I was not a member.

I don’t know anything about them.

They are secrety.

100. Lipstick - July 4, 2007

Michael, in #74, you spelled “here” as “hear”.

I graciously corrected it. 🙂

101. geoff - July 4, 2007

What’s that, Lipstick? I can’t here you!

I didn’t.

But it amuses me to imagine that I did.

105. Michael - July 4, 2007

Are you people suggesting I edit my comments on the sly?

And don’t admit it?!?

Like, I abuse my powers as Site Administrator or something?

I am so offended.

106. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

You fix your typos.

I fuck with people.


107. Michael - July 4, 2007

109. daveintexas - July 4, 2007

I’m outside by the pool, listening to fireworks. It’s rained tons so they’re safe. Haven’t heard this in a long time.

It’s nice.

110. BrewFan - July 4, 2007

I’m watching A Capital Fourth on PBS. Tony Danza stunk but the rest of the show was good.

111. Michael - July 4, 2007

Mrs. Michael and I were watching The History Channel tonight. Some very good programs on Washington and the American Revolution.

Has anyone else noticed that The History Channel is getting very good?

112. Lipstick - July 4, 2007

A few days ago I started reading a bio of Washington. Then I should read the John Adams one I’ve had for a few years.

113. Nice Deb - July 5, 2007

I just noticed when I saw this post on “WordPress Top Posts”, that one of the categories you posted this under, was “Terrorist Hemorrhoids”.

I love that!

A lot of people must be looking at that and scratching their heads.

114. Michael - July 5, 2007

A lot of people must be looking at that and scratching their heads.

Apparently. I also note that, for the first time, our goofy “About” page is one of our top ten posts and is getting a lot of hits. We’re also getting a lot of hits on the “Main Page Commenters” list.

We’ve had much bigger “lanches” in the past, but never one that triggered a significant number of hits on the “About” page.

115. Retired Geezer - July 5, 2007

for the first time, our goofy “About” page is one of our top ten posts and is getting a lot of hits.

Yeah, that reminds me of something embarassing; Kevlar Chick nominated the Dung Beetle as The Official Bug of Innocent Bystanders.
It won handily but I never wrote a post celebrating that moment.

Gotta work on that.

116. nicedeb - July 5, 2007

That is an amazing coincidence, because I’m absolutely enthralled by dung beetles, too.

I’m getting a lot of hits on my about page, too. I’m glad I recently updated it to include more info than “I like to play scrabble”.

117. BrewFan - July 5, 2007

I noticed the About and Main Page Commenters hits too, Michael. I’m assuming they must be the ones coming from Hot Air. Either that or evidence is being gathered…

118. Lipstick - July 5, 2007

My ‘lanches are more powerful and complete, baby!

119. Lipstick - July 5, 2007

Or, well, my one ‘lanch.

Which just involved living where I do and taking pictures of a goofy store.

But I’ve got that going for me. Which is nice.

120. Retired Geezer - July 5, 2007

My ‘lanches are more powerful and complete, baby!

oh God
oh God

*smokes a cigarette*

121. BrewFan - July 5, 2007

RG must have been trying out the wax machine.

I think we’ve lost him.
