Bring Your Bedpan To Fill With Free Slurpee This Weekend

By Anthony Todd in Food on Mar 16, 2016 7:19PM

Are you addicted to Slurpees from 7-11? Or maybe just obsessed with a good deal? If either of those things are true about you, this somewhat terrifying special at 7-11 is for you. On March 18 and 19, at participating 7-11 locations, you get to "Bring Your Own Cup" and fill it full of sugary slush.

And by cup, they mean just about anything. The rules ban trashcans and kiddie pools, but anything else that can fit through a 10 inch diameter hole (a bucket? a goblet? a teacup?) is eligible. So toss out the fish and bring your fishbowls and a straw. As long as it's food-safe and watertight, you're all set.

No matter what vessel you bring, it costs just $1.50 per fill. But be careful, people—this holiday has some serious diabetic potential, and who knows, brain freeze might be fatal in those quantities. (Editor's note: Seriously, your body is a temple. Please don't do this. )
