Saw this beauty while waiting in line and figured I'd grab a snapshot. Can anyone else see the irony here? LOL.

Sweet Treats next to a magazine called "Diabetes". That did make me laugh. I see the weekly popular womens magazine with the diet on the cover "lose 20 pounds in one month with the new no sugar diet" with the picture of the woman that successfully accomplished this and then on the bottom of the cover there are pictures of amazing frosted brownies and cookies "make these delicious and easy spring treats."

This describes practically every women's magazine ever.

Whats even stranger is, there IS a method to this madness, Stores like walmart have Planogram teams that design and create display plans for where products go. There is more science put into this than most people think! Point is, THIS WAS DONE ON PURPOSE.

Just as bad as watching a tv program about addiction intervention interrupted every 3 minutes by beer and vodka ads. Its either completely stupid or eerily intentional.

Sugar added to chocolate is so addictive.

Yeah, all that candy next to the diabetes mag, so fitting!

Are you talking about the women on the upper right of the photo who looks like she has a monkey on her back; juxtaposed with the candy and diabetes book?
