It’s not often you hear the words “Dante’s Inferno” and “Wawa” in the same sentence, but trust a comedian to make the connection.
Local author Nick Kupsey has penned a humor book titled, “The Five People You Meet in Wawa”, detailing those universal experiences we’ve ALL had with some of Wawa’s more…interesting patrons.
According to Kupsey, ““The book is my attempt, an update of Dante’s Inferno under the guise of a book about Wawa. It’s the best way I can describe it.”
While that may seem like a strange lens through which to view the typical Wawa excursion, it clearly has struck a chord…the book has already sold thousands of copies. It’s introduces to you to the Wawa fanatics you’re likely to meet on any given day, including the Philly native decked out in proper Philadelphia-team gear…that’s Eagles, Flyers, AND Sixers, all simultaneously…as well as your favorite and mine, the dude who pays in change.
Nick, we feel you on that one. We somehow ALWAYS manage to be behind the guy paying for his shortie in nickels. It’s, without question, the deepest circle of Hell.
