On January 31, in the original Whole Foods grocery store in Austin, Texas, a group of people assembled into what is now referred to as a flash mob.Â Made famous by the mob that appeared in Grand Central Station, hundreds ofÂ people appear and then freeze at a specific moment.Â The same thing happened in Whole Foods.Â See for yourself:
Now I am all for freedom of expression, but if someone gets in my way of the olive bar when I am running late (or in general), watch out.Â These elbows donâ€™t look like much until they hit you in the breadbasket.Â You can see from the video how tight some of the quarters are – this seems to be pretty an ill-conceived plan – and it is amazing that a fight didn’t break out.Â Trouble happens when you get between people and their food.
What kind of statement does this make to you?Â Is it actually art?
Also, if you want to start your own mob scene, Boing Boing has some tips here â€“ just stay out of my grocery store!
