Remember this shopping list? The one with the "XL cucumber" and "butt-plug for Walter" and "Hamburger Helper"?

It was a hoax. From Slog tipper Caren:

Hey Brendan,

I wanted to let you know a friend of mine found the exact same note in the Goodwill store on Dearborn. Someone is having a good time leaving these around!


The list seemed a little too narrative to be true. ("For Walter?" Who'd write that on a shopping list?)

But it was fun while it lasted.
