Normally, I don’t like to write about the same topic this close together, but I figured this was a legitimate exception because of the timing of the topic.
A few days ago I wrote a blog: Kate Winslet and I Share an Unbreakable Bond – Wawa, in which I noted that the Netflix show Mare of Easttown, starring Kate Winslet, prominently features Wawa, a local convenience store chain. I also noted how seriously Kate seems to take her role and worked hard to learn the local accent
I guess the writers at Saturday Night Live must read my blog for ideas, because the very next night one of their skits was about Mare of Easttown, and you guessed it, Wawa was featured again, as well as the accent that we supposedly have around these parts. I’ve never noticed such an accent, but I guess locals never notice the accent they and everyone around them speaks with.
Here’s the skit as a bonus, the skit also features Elon Musk, the guest host this past week:;
I’m going to go with the old chestnut that all publicity is good publicity, which would mean Wawa must have been thrilled to be mentioned on SNL.
I also wonder if Elon is now a fan of Wawa, which means we could see Wawa coffee and hoagies on the next SpaceX mission.
If so, then Wawa’s new motto could be: “Our products are out of this world.”
You read it here first, folks…
