"Purple Friday" Brings Free Iced Beverages To 7-Eleven
The free Slurpee schtick is part of the Dallas-based company's embracing of an offhand joke made by Barack Obama, wherein he said he'd hold a "Slurpee summit" between Republicans and Democrats. 7-Eleven's resulting "Purple to the People" flavor has been touted throughout its Slurpee Unity Tour. Why, I bet John Boehner is just one sugary frozen beverage away from believing in a woman's right to bodily autonomy. No? Oh well.
Head over to the Slurpee Facebook page and print out a coupon for a free small drink -- you must have it in hand to get your Slurpee, and it's only available this Friday, November 26.
