So today I noticed that there was an extremely long line, almost across the entire malls at Build-A-Bear so I look it up and they are doing a "pay your age" promotion.
Well I start to hear people getting upset because they are being told that the line is being abandoned. I look it up and looks like they couldn't handle the amount of demand from everyone.

Here is a video on twitter showing the line

We had it all wrong. He's not a frog killer, he's a killer frog.

That's not really very chaotic OP. A pretty nice orderly line. Or for you folks across the pond, "queue".

My wife and kids went to a store at a mall in Nashville and they were telling people the wait would be around 8 hours. The line took up the entire top half of a good sized mall.

A mother in Milton Keynes said she had taken her five-year-old daughter out of school to ensure they could get in the queue for a discounted bear.
"She's only five, they're not really doing much in school that's important at that age," she said.

The truly depressing thing is how many people there are building the bears for themselves.

How many gross, middle-aged people offered to babysit their nephews, only to drag them to this Hell on Earth in the hopes of scoring a 5 dollar bear?
