2007_07_Kwik_E_Mart.jpgAs part of the promotion for the upcoming "Simpsons" movie (so there!), 20th Century Fox, Gracie Films, and 7-Eleven have joined together to turn a dozen stores across the country into Kwik-E-Marts. We have a sneaking suspicion that the 7-Eleven location at 6754 W. 63rd Street (Ha HA! The North Side is Shelbyville.) will be mighty popular the next four weeks.

7-Eleven will also be selling "Simpsons"-inspired products including squishies, "Buzz" cola, Krusty-O's, official "Simpsons movie" pink doughnuts, and a limited edition "Radioactive Man #711" comic. There will also be life-sized interactive characters visiting the Kwik-E-Mart in the days leading up to the movie's release, hopefully not to rob the place.

Sadly, there will be no "Duff" beer. If there were, you bet your sweet ass it'd make "Beer of the Week."
