Come nibble on a Na’vi

"Avatar" fever has struck the Pacific Northwest, and the epicenter appears to be QFC grocery stores.  I've been to three different ones over the past week, and they're all plastered top to bottom with advertising for the "Avatar" DVD which just hit the shelves.  They've got gigantic lifesize cardboard figures of the Na'vi, they've got...

The DaRacist Code
