No, I am not making this up.

I'm sure some of you remember Lawson's, the once-omnipresent convenience store chain who ran the famous "Roll On Big O" commercials. While Lawson's disappeared from Ohio in 1985, the stores still exist in Japan, and they've been there since 1975. To learn more, check out the Wikipedia entry at [en.wikipedia.org]) and the English page of Lawson's Japanese corporate site at [www.lawson.co.jp] . Finally, there is no truth to the rumor that Lawson's Japan has modified the Big O trucks to transform into giant robots. ;-)

P.S. You might have trouble with the Wikipedia link because it contains a parentheses. If so, go to this alternate link: [lawsons.notlong.com]
