Jen sent this along and I thought it was cute in a They Might Be Giants sort of way.

    Too bad nobody in Buffalo will get it. But, so true

    Well, the original blogger got it. As did Alan and as did I and I’m sure there are thousands of people who live in the WNY who will get it. I know, it’s shocking! Some of us leave our fair burgh on occasion to see how the privileged classes of bigger cities live.

    I’m glad I moved to Buffalo, but I miss TJs something fierce.

    Well I guess you must be really really smart then. ‘Course all three of you have lived in other cities…that have Tjs.

    I wonder how a video about Wegmans would go over in Chicago.

    Based on the fact that a mere mention of Trader Joe’s over on BR generates 100 comments and that many Buffalonians have lived elsewhere, visited elsewhere or are simply familiar with one of the most well branded niche retailers in America, your condescending contention that “nobody” in Buffalo will get the video is patently absurd. It’s kinda like telling a chicken not to cluck, but don’t be a doosh.

    Kinda reminded me of my experience in Whole Foods in Hollywood Fl.
    Oh, I got it too. But I don’t live in the city, I’m in the Burbs!
    Pauldub – Sucking needed infrastructure monies from the urban core by simply existing outside the city limits.
    Has a nice ring to it, does it not?

    Inspires me to make a video entitled “If I made a commercial for Family Dollar”

    You are right…by nobody I meant most. And you, calling me condescending is very funny. Turns out you are very very smart and really really funny too.

    I’ve never wanted anything as badly as I want a Trader Joe’s right now.
