What if your local Supermarket was Web 2.0 compliant?

Tagging, customer recommendations and user-generated content at the supermarket. "Users who buy cereal, red wine and Snickers also buy condoms..." SFW, btw

Oh man, I can't believe nobody's ever made fun of Web 2.0 before now! It's so ripe for parody!

Is this something I would have to have an internet to understand?

HOW TO MAKE A JOKE

CHAPTER 3: JOKES ABOUT TECHNOLOGY

IF YOU PUT "2.0" AFTER A WORD, IT MAKES THAT WORD SEEM LIKE A SOFTWARE PROGRAM. BUT THAT WORD IS NOT A SOFTWARE PROGRAM. SEE HOW FUNNY THAT IS?

So in Web 2.0 we outsource old Chappelle show sketches to Europe?

Oh man, the Chappelle skit was awesome.

(That other skit, meh.)

We're all part of the Maghreb these days, mang.

Man, I thought for sure I'd seen something like this in Projects a while back, but I can't find it.

Oh, shit, does it just go on like this?

I guess I haven't seen it all yet. This was a lot of fun.

Oops, sorry. To save time, I only categorize amateur internet comedy sketches into "preppy college kids" and "Europe". It's a GTD efficiency paradigm 2.0 practice.

I don’t know what they have planned for tonight, but I don’t want any part of it.

People snarking in this thread also buy condoms.

Oh, whatever guys. I thought it was hilarious. The cans of Quackr oats made my day (...I'm a Flickr addict)

Buy? Yes.

Have occasion to use? ...rimshot!

It was weak at places, but I laughed. The comments on the milk cartons did it for me.

Why does this bit fall flat?
(1) Too long and rambling
(2) Here in America, the Frequent Shopper Club cards of the major chains are already doing about 51%+ of the same shit. "You bought X, Y and Z? Here are insta-printed coupons for W and #2brandZ!" And Quakr 2.Oats has been done before.

Your favorite web 2.0 supermarket sketch sucks.

Yeah, what Quakr said. This utterly failed to hold my attention, despite the semi-hot female star.

Condom that makes one bigger.

I liked it just as a little travelogue to an Israeli Quicky mart.
