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.

  5. It’s really a nice and helpful piece of information. I am glad that you shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.
