Old Jan 14th, 2011, 07:36 PM        Dollar Store Finds
So with all the crazy stuff Mockery was finding at the dollar store, I thought my local one would have some interesting stuff too. There, among cans of expired Vienna sausage and "Daffy TaffY", I found....



C OMICS!



NO duplication!
Brings excitement to reading!
Brings the whole family together!
It's not easy to sell 2 dollar's worth of old comics. but at least they try.



Here they pretty much admit that they got these from the quarter bin.


Oh, and the Superhero card? Yeah...about that..

Haha, wow... that's not even a reprint. They're actually including vintage A-Team cards with those. So now we know: VAN = SUPERHERO.

Good idea for a thread btw. I would definitely like to see what other oddities everybody else can find at their local dollar stores.

You guys found some seriously bizarre stuff! I've had poutine and it certainly didn't look like beefaroni.

I love that the guy on the cover of "young" all-stars has a mustache.

I went to my local Dollar Store to see if I could find any bizarre goodies myself and did indeed find a little something to share.

THE HULK COLD PACK!



Yep, it was right there before my very eyes. But what on earth would the severed Hulk's head be useful for?



To cure Boo-Boos of course! Nothing takes off the edge of a headache quite like slapping a mini-Hulk's head on your forehead.



And what a nicely detailed head it is! One look at those rage filled eyes and you just know this thing can cure you right up!



Another nice touch is the cold pack gel is Hulk-green.

This takes the cake for the most ridiculous cold pack I've ever seen in person, and I now own it! HAHA!

I made another trip to my local Dollar Store yesterday and did find something else to share.
But first you must witness the absolute horror that I wouldn't even dare to buy...

Smoked Oysters!



Of all the things I've seen at the Dollar Store, this was the scariest.
Well... the scariest product that one could buy anyway.

Now on to what I did purchase:

The Marvel Heroes Magic Towel!


I've almost bought these things several times in the past and just never did.
But the chance to get one with the classic X-Men; Wolverine, Juggernaut, and... Thor?
Anyhow, I decided to try it out.



For anyone that's never seen one (those that haven't been to the Dollar Store), the idea is to just add some water and the "magic" towel grows to the size of a normal hand-towel (apparently 12").



As you can see, right now it's a paltry 2".

So can this amazing product really add an extra 10" with just water?!

Watch the video to find out!


I shall never doubt the magic of towels again!

I was expecting instantaneous results. Also, the bowl breaking.

Thumbs down from me.

The oysters.... ugh. I'm glad you didn't buy them.

I was hoping for quicker results myself.
Honestly I'd been happy with it just, you know, unfolding on it's own.

Yeah, Thor is already looking pretty rough after just soaking in some water.


Edit: Robo_rob it looks like smoked oysters' oil got on your t-shirt. Eww.

Waitaminnut.. Rand? As in Ayn Rand? And Steve Ditko was an objectivist...
Coincidence?...or conspiracy?


Sorry. I went to another dollar store in town, and it was disappointing. I thought I was gonna find all sorts of cool stuff, considering how packed the shelves were, but nope. It was all boring stuff like belts and spray bottles.

Those oysters are delicious, though. Don't poke fun at food that just seems strange, give it a try. It's an adventure! Makes me want to post some of my stranger food adventures. Though, if it said smoked "oysters" I'd be a little worried. I find completely random stuff in dollar generals and family dollars all the time. I'll take some cruddy pictures on my phone next time.

"Throw Gunfire from the Train". Wow, old comics taking ideas from DeVito movies. Who woulda thunk it?
