Black Friday is a uniquely American consumerist faux “holiday” that I will never understand. Do millions of people really want to endure screaming toddlers and hordes of teenagers at the mall just so they can buy an Old Navy fleece for 20 percent off? No, thanks.

But for the retail workers who have to mediate the screaming toddler hellscape, they have little or no choice. Now, some retail employees, such as those at Walmart and Target who are seeing “Black Friday” begin earlier and earlier each year, they are saying enough is enough. Keep reading »

So apparently Wal-Mart’s generic brand version of “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!” is called “Wow! I Totally Thought It Was ‘Butter’” (note the quotes around “butter,” just in case you still weren’t clear that this product is NOT ACTUALLY BUTTER). Inspired by all these creative monikers for margarine, we came up with a few more ridiculously buttery titles of our own. Check ‘em out, after the jump… [Boing Boing] Keep reading »

Sandy McMillin’s Bikini Bod Not Welcome At Walmart


Oregon resident Sandy MicMillan recently took a quick trip to her local Walmart to pick up chips, sour cream, and coffee creamer (this detail is not important, I just thought I would call your attention to her shopping list). She figured it was hot out and, duh, it’s Walmart, so why put on clothes over her skimpy string bikini (which she incidentally purchased there last summer)? I mean, if People Of Walmart is an accurate depiction of patron fashion, then there isn’t really a dress code at the superstore. Ass cracks, back tits, and pet goats, come one, come all! Sandy claims Walmart employees kicked her out of their fine establishment, complaining that she was showing too much skin and violating health codes (huh?). Walmart denies the story, saying that Sandy was actually asked to leave for being verbally abusive, not for her outfit choice. Sandy is now boycotting Walmart forever and will probably file a lawsuit. She’ll just have to get her cream products somewhere else, somewhere that appreciates a woman’s right to flaunt her bikini bod. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
