Re: Defending the box
Some of us need a worthy lunchbox for our bologna and caviar sandwiches (topped
with melted cheesedip, of course). And, IMO, it's about time I retired my
Battlestar Galactica lunchbox...

Subject: Defending the box
I have to say, I'm a little disenchanted with the lunch box after what
So I go to my usual comic haunt to check my "subscription box", and I ask
if the guy ordered my GROO lunchbox. (Now, I've known this guy for a
while, we're sorta friends) ... and he says, "Yeah." and shakes his head.
"It's the only one I ordered."
Owner: You're the only person who would pay 20 bucks for a lunchbox.
There's going to be a Usagi one too, but I didn't think you would shell out
40 bucks for lunchboxes!
Nate: Well, what about all those MARVEL ones on the wall?
Owner: 8 bucks each.
Customer (chiming in): 20 bucks for a GROO LUNCHBOX?! GROO?! It probably
cost them 2 bucks to make it!
Nate: Well, uh, yeah, you're right... but...
Owner: The price limit on those should have been no more than 15 bucks. 20
is ridiculous. I won't even stock them. No one will pay it, and GROO just
isn't a big demand.
So this went around in circles for 15 minutes, and I walked out of there
feeling like a moron for paying 20 bucks on a lunchbox... I mean, 20 bucks
is a lot of money! I could fill my gas tank twice with that. I tried to
remind myself that I was being a good GROO fan, supportive and all, but I
think this is my last non-comic GROO purchase if the prices don't ease off.
