Lidl opened their first ten stores today here in the States. I made a trip to scope out their Sardine selection (naturally) on their grand opening. While taking pics to inform all of you Sardine Eaters of their sardines, out of no where, the Third Reich moved in on me. "You can't be taking pictures!" Really!? They wanted no pictures to be taken inside their store. For the rest of the visit, I could feel the Reich's eyes upon me as walked around with tins of Sardines clenched tightly in my hands... Beads of sweat rolled down my forehead as I wondered if I'd make it out with these tins of Sardines... Should the Sardines pictures cease, reviews disappear... you will know the Lidl Reich got me! I'll be popping these tins in the next day or so (in a secret location!).
