We've only had four major designs over our 11 year history.

Thank Heavens, it’s 7-11! And Thank Heavens for 7-Eleven! -ram

How the heck could you not mention the Slurpee? That's about the only worthwhile thing at a 7-Eleven, man!

Also: their various hot dog-shaped foodstuffs scare me. Now they've got those Pizza Stix. Just wrong.

dude, the worst was 'cheesburger bites' or whatever. They aren't even beef!

Paul -- How I could forget the Slurpee? I don't know! It was probably because I've had a total of one Slurpee in my entire life... it didn't even cross my mind!

Ryan! Get yo' bad self a Slurpee! Okay, they aren't the most fantabulous thing in the world (well, they are to some people)...but they are one of those quintessential American experiences. I know people with social rituals surrounding Slurpees. It's considered quality family time or something. I don't get it--but I do get brain freeze.

And I like the African logo.

Remember when Bart and Milhouse went on a wild sugar high after downing too many Squishees (Simpsons version of Slurpees)??

My local Sleven isn't open 24 hours (blasphemy!). So I can't go and get my usual late-night assortment (pack of Mentos, bottle of Arizona Ginseng Iced Tea, bag of Pepperoni Pizza Combos) at the drop of a hat like I used to... *sniffle*

There is an unrelated chain of stores inTaiwan called 7-11. I'll have to snap you a picture while I am there.

My favorite time to hit 7-11 is just after a show at Jaxx while my ears are still ringing and I stink of smoke. Ah, the Metal...

dave -- In Vietnam they had stores that had the huge 7-Eleven sign, but without the "Eleven." Asia is great for humorous copyright infringement.

Robert -- Yes, that's a great time because the counter people looked scared of the large influx of freaks...

You had me thinking it really was Monday for a minute there.

I'm with Paul. It's all about the Slurpee.

Oops -- good catch, Mel. :)

Ryan --

I cant believe you've only had one Slurpee! On a hot summer day, nothing, and I MEAN NOTHING, beats a Coke Slurpee.

The only dower about 7-11 Slurpee's is that from store to store, the Slurpee's change. Some have too much syrup, not enough ice..It's like a mixed gotta get it just right, and when it is.......yeeeeeah. :)

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
