Even when we begin to believe sexism is dying and there is, in fact, hope in defeating misogyny, Walmart apparel can be sure to kill all our optimism.
In Vandalia, IL, Kayla Hyde shared with her Twitter followers her disgust over a black T-shirt in Walmart’s clothing section. With blue lettering reading “Cool Story Babe,” white lettering below orders the “babe” to “Now Go Make Me a Sandwich.” 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 »
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

When they returned from church on Sunday morning, the face of the Lord mysteriously materialized on a Walmart receipt, which had been sitting on the floor for a few days. Did this couple experience a religious miracle or is their floor due for a good mopping? You be the judge. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
Country stars Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, who you can currently see on “The Voice,” are getting hitched this weekend. And their tweets about their wedding preparations are kind of refreshing. “I am so excited,” Miranda wrote on Wednesday. “Got nails touched up. One last wal mart (sic) run and I should be good!” Then yesterday, she posted the above photo of a package of deer cutlets. “Last thing loaded for the wedding!!! Harvested by …. me!!!!!” she said.
Blake was apparently very proud. Keep reading »
