Feeding the giraffes at the Omaha Zoo was $2 per branch last summer and it’s $5 a branch this summer.

Arby’s 5-for-$5 is now 1-for-$3.49.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Dollar Tree is now $1.25.

A lot of roller items at QT were $1.59 or 2/$3.00. Now they’re $2.00 or 2/$3.50.  I think that change has hit within the last couple weeks.

Yeah, I was using dollar menus 20 years ago. Had no idea they were still around during the Trump presidency.

Also, when I was in college, the Manhattan McDonalds didn't have $1 McDubs like every other McDonalds did, and I was pretty salty about that.

Hats and t shirts are really expensive. They used to be like 15-20 bucks and now a decent hat to tee is $35 minimum. I know things get more expensive over time, but that hat prices is too damn high!!!!  On a separate note, its really hard to find a hat that fits well all of the sudden. I used to be able to find one pretty easy, not it takes me forever to find one that fits right. Is this a weird getting old problem?

The sign at the Arby’s I just drove by said 4-for-$10.

What a strange comment. I wonder if mocat has been to Europe? Huh, maybe someone will ask him.
