What's 10 inches wide and 10 inches deep?

Get your mind out of the gutter and into a 7-Eleven, because that's the maximum-sized container allowed for the convenience store's Bring Your Own Cup Day.

Until 7 p.m. Saturday, April 11, 7-Eleven customers are permitted to bring their own cups to fill up with icy Slurpees.

Each customer is allowed one Slurpee and his or her chosen container must fit into a 10-inch hole upright.

Any size Slurpee, collected in any size cup, costs $1.49 plus tax.

However, before you jump in your car, there are a few more rules.

According to the 7-Eleven website, fishbowls and pineapples are acceptable containers – as long as you remove the fish first. However, toasters, dogs and shoes are not. The container must be food safe and water tight.
