From the Cradle to the Grave: Costco
This past weekend's trip to SoCal offered many insights, none of which was more enlightening than finding out that Costco—that mega-giant big box store of big stores—offers many huge things for sale, from giant packages of Pampers, ultra wide-screen tvs, excessively large slabs of meat and cheese. But—did you know?—they also sell caskets! True. Photos don't lie, as this image, caught by our dutiful Three Rooms Press spy, reveals. Who cares if Paris Hilton is going to jail? Get me one of them caskets. The only question we have is: Do they come in extra large sizes? Not to be weight-phobic, but many of those Costco shoppers look as if they don't necessarily share the 2 lb. bags of potato chips they score for discout prices. It's nice to know that from the cradle to the grave, Costco's got you covered.
