(Note – This is not an ad for Combos.)

Grocery Store Worker: “Did you just take a picture of Combos?”

Grocery Store Worker: “Did you just take a picture of Combos?”
Me: “Yes.”
Grocery Store Worker: “CODE PIZZA! WE’VE GOT A CODE PIZZA!! STRANGE MAN TAKING PHOTOS OF SNACK FOODS. LOCKDOWN THE FRONT DOORS!”
