The Costco Prank

Rob noticed how easy it would be to reproduce Costco shelf tags at home, so he printed up the most ridiculous product names he and his family could think of and inserted them into shelves at his local store. Then he made more tags and sent them to people all over the country! The correspondents placed more tags and sent pictures back. Although many were taken down quickly, you might want to check your local store for odd products. Link

When you said "Rob" did this, I guessed the guy at cockeyed.com, and I was right. Do I spend too much time on the WWW or what?
But the linked page now says the prank "has been removed". Wonder why. Perhaps removing the evidence if Costco is after his butt? Hmmm....

As the person who makes signs for a retail store, I find this quite funny. I'm sure that at least a few non-life-hating costco employees may have also gotten a chuckle, or at least a smirk from this. :)
