Competitive grocery bagging: a huge letdown

Thought I had stumbled upon the next Rock Paper Scissors – an activity everyone knows with a little-known ferocious competitive subculture. “They put one hand in the bag and use the other hand to flip stuff in,” said my bagger, miming what looked like a torrent, a streak, a rainbow of canned goods flying over the lip of the bag.

So cool, I thought. 

But then I looked on YouTube and from the clips I could find,  it’s actually pretty boring. (Imagine!) No flying groceries. I think this could be taken to a much higher level. Perhaps we’ve only scratched the surface of competitive grocery bagging.

  1. The Curious George episode where George has to sub for the small local grocery’s bagger (sprained wrist puts him on the DL) against MegaStore’s guy is a hoot–much more entertaining than those boring YouTubes.

    It’s the canned ham that separates the GMs from the 2200s.
