Mocked in: Season 2, Episode 6

One of the strangest things about moving to a big city is how few things some stores sell. If you grew up in the land of shopping malls and Wal-Mart, it's hard to imagine a store that doesn't pack itself to the gills with merchandise. Yet, in cooler neighborhoods, the customers seem to outnumber the items available for sale. The only issue we take with Portlandia's take is that their boutique "Two Girls, Two Shirts" went out of business. In the real world, these businesses stay open long after your favorite spots go under.

Because the world is insane and spiteful.
