1. That was a joke that clearly went over your head.
2. I'm dead serious, other than reusable bags, I've never heard of paying for grocery bags.
Governments are starting to pass laws requiring stores to charge for plastic bags as a way to cut down on waste.
When I was in Colorado in January, I was shopping in King Soopers and was asked, while self-checking out, how many bags I had used and informed there would be a very small fee per bag. Haven't seen anywhere in Florida doing it yet.
