for these troubled times

when a big storm is coming, we go to the store and buy water, batteries, and plywood which we will never use.

apparently, strawberry pop tarts are the most popular thing people buy when these things happen.
they run to the store, buy batteries, etc., and strawberry pop tarts.

why the don't buy twinkies and cupcakes that will last a century, i've no idea.

when asking a bar owner about the lasting success of his enterprises, he said that pop tarts is the number one thing people buy.

walmart, and similar goliaths, have teams that stategize product placement based on weather.
they will move the umbrellas and salt and shovels to the front.
they also ship tons of kelloggs pop tarts to the stores where trouble is coming.
