Dear guy who tried to buy a microwave and vacuum at Wal-Mart with a $1 million bill,

Based on your shopping list, I can see you appreciate cleanliness and efficiency–you want to defrost your chicken breasts in 3 minutes and keep your carpets dustmite-free. That’s commendable. But it was the way tried to pay for these products that really has me intrigued. You handed that Wal-Mart cashier a $1 million dollar bill and waited patiently for your change. This shows me ingenuity, boldness, and, dare I say it: patriotism. Because in these uncertain financial times, your desire to stimulate the economy and your unwavering faith in the value of a dollar is downright inspiring. It makes me want to pledge allegiance to the American flag that waves proudly in the Arkansas breeze at Wal-Mart corporate headquarters.

And as soon as I’m done drawing up this $1 billion dollar bill, baby, I’m taking us to Red Lobster. [CNET]

Today’s Lady News: Saudi Arabia’s Lingerie Law To Go Into Effect

  • Saudi Arabia will begin enforcing a law that requires lingerie shops to only employ women, so that men and women do not have to come in contact with each other while buying undergarments. [BBC
  • Washington’s Gov. Chris Gregoire, a Democrat, announced today that she will introduce a bill to legalize same-sex marriage. In a press conference today, Gov. Gregoire said, “Some say domestic partnerships are the same as marriage. That’s a version of the discriminatory, separate but equal argument of the past. For decades that argument was used to keep African Americans separate in schools, at their apartments, at drinking fountains. After all, the argument went, those separate places were just as good. But we, Americans knew, separate is not equal and finally the law caught up.” [Think Progress]

Last time we left heard from “the Human Barbie,” Sarah Burge of the UK had taught her seven-year-old daughter Poppy how to pole dance and had given her a boob job voucher for her birthday. Now she’s made her little girl’s dreams come true yet again by gifting her a $4,500 liposuction voucher. For Christmas. In her stocking.

Will someone just give these people a reality show already so they can have their 15 minutes of fame and then disappear? When a mom is a self-described plastic surgery addict and says things about her daughter like “she asks for surgery all the time,” it’s safe to assume this crap isn’t going to stop on its own. I would suggest someone report Sarah to the British version of Child Protective Services. But sadly, it probably doesn’t legally constitute “abuse” to drum it into your child from elementary school onward that they’re going to want and/or need liposuction and breast implants one day.  [Daily Mail UK]

Just because Michele Bachmann dropped out of the 2012 presidential race doesn’t mean we’re in the clear — there are still plenty of candidates who would love nothing more than to restrict women’s reproductive rights. Newt Gingrich was asked by a voter yesterday whether he supports abortion if the woman was impregnated via rape or incest. And what do you think Mr. Compassionate had to say about that?

No, I wouldn’t make exceptions. What I would try to do is create a program that would enable women in those circumstances to have support and help them through whatever process they needed both in terms of counseling and in terms of if they wanted to give up the baby for adoption. Keep reading »
