Mob Project provides levity

Through a NPR All Things Considered discussion, Gawker snippet, I have learned about the Mob Project, as explianed by Wired. I found this to be a wonderfully silly idea. The All Things Considered discussion of Mob Project (20 June 2003) had the NPR interviewer laughing.

I heard about this on the news, and I came up with a sadistic way to flash mob Wal-Mart. Have everyone in on the mob go to the counters and buy a single pack of cheap gum. To pay, use a debit card, credit card, or a really big bill. The ones with the debit and credit cards get cash back. Get enough people to do that and you can get just about every bill and coin that Wal-Mart has under the size of a 20. It will frustrate the cashiers, the CSMs, and the managers, and if you're really lucky they might even have to close the store until they can get smaller bills!

Sounds kinda mean. What about the other shoppers?
