    “Too many fuckin’ security cameras.”

    That’s too right. I remember when I were a lad how we could have steak every so often. Can’t do that today.

    “Too many fuckin’ security cameraes.”

    As with most things, this reminds me of an old Jimmy Buffett song called Peanut Butter Conspiracy.

    Lookin’ back at my hard luck days
    I really do have to laugh
    Workin’ in a dive for twenty-six dollars
    Spendin’ it all on grass
    We were hungry hard luck heroes
    Tryin’ just to stay alive
    So we’d go down to the corner grocery
    This is how we’d survive

    Who’s gonna steal the peanut butter
    I’ll get a can of sardines
    Runnin’ up and down the aisle of the Mini-Mart
    Stickin’ food in our jeans
    We never took more than we could eat
    There was plenty left on the racks
    We all swore if we ever got rich
    We would pay the Mini-Mart back
    Yes Sir, yes Sir
    We would pay the Mini-Mart back

    It was a two man operation
    Had it all down on a note
    Ricky would watch the big round mirror
    And I’d fill up my coat
    Then we’d head for the check-out aisle
    With a lemon and a bottle of beer
    Into the car got to make it on home
    ‘Cause supper time is gettin’ near

    Who’s gonna steal the peanut butter
    I’ll get a can of sardines
    Runnin’ up and down the aisle of the Mini-Mart
    Stickin’ food in our jeans
    We never took more than we could eat
    There was plenty left on the racks
    We all swore if we ever got rich
    We would pay the Mini-Mart back
    Yes Sir, yes Sir
    We would pay the Mini-Mart back

    I guess every good picker has had some hard times
    I have had my share
    It’s really kinda funny to laugh at it now
    But I don’t wanna go back there
    So every now and then when I’m in a grocery
    I’ll take a little but not much
    ‘Cause you never know when the hard times will hit ya
    And I don’t want to lose my touch

    Who’s gonna steal the peanut butter
    I’ll get a can of sardines
    Runnin’ up and down the aisle of the Mini-Mart
    Stickin’ food in our jeans
    We never took more than we could eat
    There was plenty left on the racks
    We all swore if we ever got rich
    We would pay the Mini-Mart back
    Yes Sir, yes Sir
    We would pay the Mini-Mart back

    Back in the 80s I saw Jimmy in concert in Denver (a place which had the actual Mini-Marts of which he sings). “Did I ever pay the Mini-Mart back?” he sang, “5 dollars for 4 slices of ham. Hell no!”

    I see your pie chart and raise you this one. The self reference in the mouseover nearly broke my head.
