In an on going investigation being carried out by The Potato, evidence is emerging that the new Abercrombie Shop in Dublin is in fact a front for a detailed psychological experiment tracking and analysing human behaviour and consumer patterns.
The Potato planted an undercover researcher in the Abercrombie business for months before today’s launch. Our plant, has been leaking information from meetings, stats and plans from inside the set up.
The new shop is actually a psychologically research project, tracking the increase in retardedness in correlation with decreases in a country’s wealth. The researchers want to know why people, who claim to have absolutely no money, will continue to spend in an incredibly over priced shop.
The research project is being jointly run by the World Bank and British Psychological Society. The researchers will also be looking at the link between level of academic education and actual retardedness – the sole reason for setting up the shop directly beside Trinity College.
The research will be used to amend and alter austerity packages for Ireland (and other developed countries) and could lead to harsher and deeper cuts to vital programs and services throughout the country.

Early this morning before the shop had opened, the first number of retarded people began showing up, many appearing to be students. These students can apparently afford fees.
So, are you going to shop there? And if so, do you have your own torch? Let us know.
