The New Red Owl
Excitement has reach a fever pitch here in the Confederacy over the opening of the new Red Owl Supermarket across the street from the First Church of Christ Scientist on Capital Lane. Until now the citizens of the Confederacy of Dunces had one choice for groceries - the Piggly Wiggly. That all changes with the opening of Ken's Red Owl next week. "What set's us apart form the Pig?" Ken said as he thought a moment. "I guess it's our in store bakery. We've also got a photo lab but I'm suspecting our biggest attraction will be the new claw machine near the front of the store. For fifty cents you can move this claw in a windowed box over a collection of stuffed animals. If you drop it just right you might be able to pick up the toy and deliver it to the chute. Let's see the Pig top that one."
