Kroger Now Selling Bcco Pb Pl — 17 Comments

  1. I am SO glad I didn’t see this sign in my local grocery store; I would think it was flashbacks for sure. WTF?

    You know, we have all different grocery chains in Cali. When I first moved here, I thought it was hysterical that one of the major chains is called Ralphs. I mean, who names a food store after vomiting? Sick.

  2. @Grannymar: Saving on ink, I guess.
    @Gretchen: I used to live where there was a big local hardware chain call Kuesters – sounds like ass. I never thought about Ralphs in that light.
    @Scotty: nice try. More I think about it, it might have been a brand name???

  3. Pb is the elemental symbol for lead (you know…the periodic table).

    PI (although on the sign, it’s actually probably PL) is 3.14159 — the ratio of a a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

    And I borrowed Scotty’s translation of Bcco.

    Another fine example of a little knowledge going all sorts of wrong.

  4. I officially have a headache from trying to figure that gibberish out. Who does Kroger think shops in their stores? They should at least arm you with some kind of ‘decoder’ device.
