Bring Your Own Slurpee Cup Day a Big Social Media Win for 7-Eleven

Probably also a good day for dentists and doctors treating impaired glucose conditions.

In a promotion perfect for social media fun, 7-Eleven on Saturday allowed customers to fill just about any vessel with a Slurpee for just $1.49.

The only limit was that it had to somehow fit in a cardboard cut-out bigger than a human head. As expected, the results from Bring Your Own Cup Day were both hilarious and disturbing.

A look on Twitter shows that people brought everything from rice cookers to a cut-open watermelon.

Of course, I didn’t want to just troll the Internet, so I did some real gumshoe reporting. (And I nearly got gum on my shoe walking a block and a half to the 7-Eleven near my house.)

Once there, I found out that the biggest vessel someone had brought into that store was a large KFC chicken bucket. I also met the nice young woman, pictured at right, with her SpongeBob SquarePants cup.

There are plenty of great images on Twitter and Instagram, but here are a few of my favorites:
