Free beef (or tofu) with tire purchase

1 Comment

Another odd Obscure Store story from Eugene, OR: Customers never tire of free beef, tofu.

For the past 40 years, the Les Schwab tire store chain has given away beef with the purchase of tires. As a spoof, a nearby bicycle store has been running ads for the last ten years offering a pound of tofu with the purchase of bike tires. Oddly, Les Schwab never even realized there was a spoof campaign and, to top it off, didn’t know what tofu was.

    We vegetarians have to fight a LOT harder than just a counter-offer of tofu. I write continuously to my congresspeople and president telling them to outlaw meat and factory farming and to impose 20-year prison sentences for doing so.

    I am sick of coddling meat-eaters. All the anti-child pornography terrorists don’t say “I encourage you not to have sex with children, but I won’t force my morality down your throat.” Instead, they use extreme violence, in spite of the fact that 99.9% of the population, including myself, is already doing enough on this issue by NOT engaging in sex with children. Unfortunately, with meat, the opposite statistics are currently true (98%, rather than 99.9%, I estimate, eat meat). This will not change without strong legislation.
