Butchers make odd bedfellows.

23 Aug

If you’re not familiar with Groupon, it’s a site that has one deal each day. You typically spend a certain amount of money to purchase the coupon, then receive twice that value in goods/services when you use the coupon. It’s awesome.

Anyway, part of my morning ritual is to visit the site and see if I’m interested in the deal. Today’s featured business struck me as odd:

No… don’t get me wrong. The meat sounds great. But check out the “Highlights” section… I’m just wondering how NHL and NFL Jerseys factor into a butcher shop? Or, how many people swing into Springfield Butcher looking for a good New York Strip and end up impulsively buying a Giants jersey instead.

Because meat and jerseys go together like peanut butter and couches.
