7-Eleven’s bring-your-own-cup Slurpee day goes as expected

The public interpretation of “cup” proved to be loose, and people showed up bearing Slurpee-carrying receptacles that ranged from reasonable to grotesque.

In summary, perhaps it’s time for a new national slogan: “America: We’re disgusting, but we’re inventive.”
