Free Fucking Slurpee!

The title should be all you need. But, because I know you Blogtownies crave the insight offered by us, your slavish Mercury staff, I'll elaborate. Ahem.

In honor of July the 11th (7/11, get it?) all participating 7-11 stores will be giving out a free 7.11 oz Slurpee to anyone who wants one.

Just so you know, the original Slurpee machine was modified from a car air conditioning system and the name "Slurpee" wasn't coined until 1967. You can find more information about Slurpee history by watching this annoying Slurpee flash thingy.

Oh, and to avoid any of those "where's there a 7-11 in my neighborhood" comments, here is a store locater. You are welcome.
