Leavin' on a Laserjet Plane OR Ketchup if you can

We rejoin Late Night Supermarket Man and BOGO girl at Philadelphia International Airport. Late Night Supermarket Man is re-reading the mission that Grandpa Shelly printed out for them.

LNSM: "You must find the software and deliver it to the Radio House."

BOGO: What do you think it means?

LNSM: I think it means we must
find the software.

BOGO: What software?

LNSM: You don't know.

BOGO: I don't know?

LNSM: No, You don't know.

BOGO: Who?

LNSM: The software, it's called You don't know.

BOGO: What's it
do?

LNSM: I don't know. But we have to find it.

BOGO: Where?

LNSM: Well, I think it's in North Carolina.

BOGO: Why do you
think that?

LNSM: Because Grandpa Shelly booked us two tickets to North
Carolina.

BOGO: Where do we go when we get there?

LNSM: To find
the software and bring it to the Radio House.

BOGO: But where--

LNSM: Enough questions, Bogo, let me think. I have to think.

BOGO: You can do it, Late Night Supermarket Man.

LNSM: That's
it!


Alright, so a lot of other stuff happened to our heroes. But six hours later they got to the North Carolina airport and found a taxi. And After that they arrived at--

BOGO: Super Walmart! Of Course! You're a genius, Late Night Supermarket Man!

LNSM: Thank you. Now what time is it?

BOGO: It's 11:30.

LNSM: Perfect! Let's go. Late Night Supermarket Man to the rescue!


Meanwhile, at the Radio House, JB was on the phone with Grandpa Shelly.

JB: I need that software, Grandpa Shelly.

GS: You asked for my services,
you need to be patient. It's 11:30, this is when they work best.

JB: Who
is this Late Night Supermarket Man anyway?

GS: That's not your concern.
But be patient, you'll have your software. He may be a little strange, but he
hasn't...completely...failed me...um...in a long time.


In case you started to wonder, yes: this is the best we could do for a plot. Meanwhile, back at the Super Walmart, the employees were rearranging shelves and making a lot of noise.

LNSM: How are we supposed to find the software with all this noise?

BOGO: Oooh, two for one on Trivial Pursuit Totally 80s Edition.

LNSM: Why would you need two?

BOGO: Because it's two for one!

LNSM: Alright, put it back. Listen, I don't see the software anywhere. Are
you sure we can't download it?

BOGO: What does the note say?

LNSM: It doesn't.

BOGO: What are we gonna do?

LNSM: Well, we could do what we always do.


Just then, Late Night Supermarket Man realized this is the first mission anyone is hearing about, so nobody knows what they always do.

LNSM: Well, tell them, then. That's not my problem!


What Late Night Supermarket Man always does is purchase a few items from the store to offer as an alternative. It's not a very good strategy but he manages to stumble on the solution later.

LNSM: Hey, nobody asked you to editorialize.


Ahem. Sorry. Go on, get on with it.

LNSM: Bogo, take the Totally 80s.

BOGO: Two?

LNSM: May as well. It is two for one.


As they approached the checkout, our heroes picked up a large plastic ball and a six pack of Sam Adams Light. And then they saw it.

LNSM: A line?

BOGO: And look what she's buying!

LNSM: We'll never make it!


Or Will They???

Find out next time on....
