Flash mobbing finally made it here over the weekend. A couple of hundred people wandered into a Burger King in Auckland, mooed at ever item on the menu, and left.

Sounds more like a flash herd to me. [They didn't even stop to graze?]

No, they don't sell anything as nutritious as spam ...

Max, saw the news article and received half a dozen emails from NZers about the Burger King flashmob and laughed myself silly.

Most of them hadn't heard of flash mobbing. I felt soooooo superior. Gotta enjoy it, it's a rare feeling among that mob!

I was talking with some flks around here about flash mobbing one of our local "convenience" stores, Wawa, now expanded to include Super in its title (SuperWawa...more space and gas pumps, etc). "Wawa" is an old Lenni Lenape word for "goose" and the store uses a Canada goose on its logo. So we thought we might get a hundred or two folks to descend upon the busiest store and say, "We are geese" (or mebbe "where's the goose?") and start honking like a flock of migrating geese for about 10 minutes or so, onomatopoetically playing off the store's name of course, "wah-WAH! wah-WAH! wah-WAH!" ...etc. Whattiya think?

Ten minutes is way too long.

Yeah, mebbe 5 minutes would suffice. We could do it in concert like a flock of geese. Or mebbe we could have each person show up sporadically during the day and say, "Hey! I'm a goose!" and start "honking". Hmmmm...

If anybody has any Wawas in their area and likes the idea, go for it!
