Bad news people hoping to throw tomatoes at Sarah Palin while she signs books, but not forward-thinking enough to bring them from home.
They're totally not selling them at the places where she is going to sign books…
While going through the check-out lane, again with no wait, she told the clerk she forgot to get some grape tomatoes, which she loves, so she would be right back. That's when the bells went off.
The clerk told her they had no tomatoes that day. No tomatoes? At Costco? As she was leaving, she noticed a man with a store manager’s name tag and asked him why they had no tomatoes. He informed her the store did have tomatoes, but they were taken off the shelves for a few hours.
It turns out that Palin had been pelted with a tomato at an earlier stop on her book tour and the management at the Costco was determined it wouldn't happen here.
From what I hear, Costco's really been trying to push the pineapples this week.
