Yes. As Canoe.ca reported today; "For the eighth consecutive year, Winnipeg [Manitoba, Canada] sucks like no other city in the world.
Sucks Slurpees, that is. Winnipeg has defended the Slurpee capital crown it has worn since 2000.
'We don't really know why. Winnipeg is like no other Slurpee-consuming city in the world,' said Sonia Chau of 7-Eleven's Canadian headquarters in Vancouver. 'When it's minus-40 degrees, people in Winnipeg can be seen outside ... with a Slurpee in hand.'"
Still the Big Media continue their blackout of the Plus Ultra campaign to bring a Kwik-e-Mart to Winnipeg! Keep the pressure on the polititans they're starting to come around!! In the mean time Plus Ulta salutes Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Jr., Ph.D, a true Kwik-e-Mart Legend.
According to Wikipedia; "During the 1960s, while still living in India, Apu spent some time as a student of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, when he befriended Paul and Linda McCartney. Apu's friendship with the McCartneys resulted in him being dubbed by some (mainly himself) as The Fifth Beatle. They visited Apu in Springfield around the time he became naturalized. Apu is a U.S. citizen and holds a Ph.D. in computer science. He graduated first in his class of seven million at 'Caltech' — the Calcutta Institute of Technology — going on to earn his doctorate at the Springfield Heights Institute of Technology."
