According to Best Buy's Geek Squad, a computer customer support group, many people skipped work and school to watch the first two prequels of Star Wars. Whether that's true or not, as the May 19th release date approaches, the GeekSqaud is latching on to this last, great movie in the Star Wars franchise by providing a feature where students and employees can customize their own excuse notes to send to their teachers and bosses.

Book Promoted Along Side Group Toke

Latching on to a group toke scheduled for 4:20 PM on April 20, cause group Magic Propaganda Mill is promoting It's Just A Plant, a controversial children's book about marijuana written by Ricardo Cortes, with a "Box of Weed: 5 for $50" offer which consists of a box filled with five copies of the book for $50.

Predictably, the book has experienced an uphill battle since its inception with publishers refusing to publish, press analyzing it and politicians using it as a crutch in their pro and con drug positions. To a kid, it is just a plant. A plant worth learning about sooner than later.

Wal-Mart Gets Jiggy With Singles Night

Try as we might, we can't seem to envision the words "hot date" and "Wal-Mart" in the same sentence. But Bentonville, Arkansas Wal-Mart has been combining the two for over a year now with their Friday night date night during which those in search of a mate place red ribbons on their shopping carts that scream, "I'm a loser!"...we mean..."I'm available!" in order to mingle with other red ribboners. OK, so flirting in a store is all good but slapping a billboard on oneself announcing the intent just takes all the fun out of the game.
