We were caught laughing out loud at this Portlandia skit about reusable grocery bags. In the following clip, a shopper is ridiculed for not bringing his reusable grocery bags to Zupan’s Market (a real local Portland, OR chain). It should be mentioned that at the real market, both paper and reusable grocery bags are available.
Even though Bulletin Bag [.com]‘s home base is near the “other” Portland (Maine, that is), we think the theme for this Portlandia skit is right on. A little over the top? Perhaps, but just think about what would happen if everyone reacted this way to a forgetful shopper with no reusable bag.
Oh, in case you’re wondering, Portlandia is a IFC sketch comedy series starring the outrageous Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live) and the hilarious Carrie Brownstein along with a surprising star-studded cast of special guests. If you have young children or if you’re easy offended this show is not for you, but if you have a wacky, warped sense of humor like us, you can check out season 1 on Netflix or Hulu, and season 2 every Friday night on IFC.
