(Newser) – Monday's impeachment hearing was serious business. Mostly. There was also the oddity of Republican attorney Steve Castor arriving at the proceeding with all his material tucked into a reusable supermarket bag instead of a briefcase. As Time points, lots of people on the internet noticed. So, too, did the supermarket chain whose bag was in use: The Fresh Market. It's now boasting of being "the official briefcase maker of Steve Castor" and offering free bags for people who mention #TFMBriefcase into Tuesday afternoon, reports the Hill. (Impeachment got serious again on Tuesday.)
