Friday Fun: “Gangreens” – A Mad Magazine parody of Walgreens
Haven’t done many “Friday Fun” posts here at Hoboken411 since well – around Hurricane Sandy. So that said – and considering we have chain pharmacy Walgreens here in Hoboken, I figured this “Gangreens” parody would a perfect way to lighten up on the last work day of the week.
I strongly recommend subscribing to Mad Magazine. At just $16 a year – it’s a great way to get some entertainment without electricity or cell signals.
Gangreens – staffed by “mumbling twenty-somethings”
Mad Magazine chose to mock Walgreens in their “Gangreens” sales circular parody. It was filled with ridiculous products that flood shelves across the country. And some of the products they came with were outright hilarious!
Why do they sell food at pharmacies anyway?
Does anyone wonder why they even sell food at pharmacies? Mad’s take on that situation: “Food… Here? Why Not?” and some fun stuff to eat, like:
- Frozen Sparrow Thighs for just $24.99 – “100% American-shot meat!”
- Disney Theme Park Bottled Water for $5.99 – “100% authentic water from the Log Flume!” (Gross!)
