Week eleven has the store employees wrap up their adventures with a Christmas special that attempts to cash in with cheap merchandise, poorly adapts a seasonal classic and spreads unsubstantiated rumors of a beloved holiday figure.
Week ten has the employees giddy with excitement as their wacky neighbor comes into the store to shop—only to find out that things don’t turn out near as wackily as years of watching Three’s Company and Charles In Charge have led them to expect.
Week nine has the employees forced to take shelter in Abe’s office when a torch wielding mob goes on the rampage after the store runs out of the latest tabloids. The day is saved when Nathan recounts memories of the time that he was abducted by UFOs when playing with the Crocodile boy and Bigfoot.
There are only four cartoons for this week and I can’t remember if the paper had a short week or if I forgot to clip one of the cartoons out. There could be a hilarious climax to the tabloid story arc, but we may never know.
Week eight has the store employees finding a talking avocado that can predict the future, although it is eaten before there is time to do too much predicting. A quickly organized religious cult shows up in time to witness the prophetic fruit’s return.
Week seven has Headlice of the Gods singing suggestive songs in the produce section and the two band members who survive the experience make gratuitous comparisons to The Beatles and eagerly make plans for their solo careers.
