Now that Spring is here, a young man's fancy turns to Slurpees...ah, who am I kidding? I drink Slurpees all year long, it just feels more justified in the warmer months of the year.
7-11 released two of these Slurpee Cup checklists, one for DC, one for Marvel. I have an original Marvel one tacked to my wall on my right as I type this, but I could never find a copy of the DC one.
Thankfully, our newest F.O.A.M. member Christopher Chance stepped up to the plate, and sent me a whole folder full of stuff, including this.
DC picked some unusual candidates to get their own Slurpee cups to fill out the roster past Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman (fourth row, third from left), et al.--where else would you see merchandise starring The Vigilante, Alfred, Hourman, Mr. Tawky Tawny, Heat Wave, and Ma and Pa Kent??
I have some of these cups in my collection, but rest assured I don't actually use them to drink Slurpees out of, lest I get some horrible 70s-era disease ("Doctor, what do you mean I've got Legionnaire's Disease?!").
Thanks for this Chris, and welcome to F.O.A.M.!
Today's post is dedicated to Berry T. Cat, Official Mascot of The Aquaman Shrine, who passed away Friday night. He was my little buddy, always ready take a nap on any Aqua-Item I might have lying around (see above). Everyone here misses him very, very much.
