You can find almost anything on the shelves at Walmart — sometimes even obscene photographs of a 44-year-old man in drag.
Police in Fremont, Ohio, say Rodney Kunkel stocked the shelves at Walmart with graphic photographs showing himself in black nylons, heels and pink lingerie with his genitals exposed.
Kunkel allegedly placed the photos on shelves in the cosmetic department and on cars in the store’s parking lot on Feb. 28, The News-Messenger reports. Read more… Keep reading »
Walmart has apparently banned Kanye West‘s new CD over seXXXy monster cover art. “Yooooo they banned my album cover!” Kanye whined on Twitter last night. “So Nirvana can have a naked human being on the cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings.”*** Keep reading »
Like Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis before him, Justin Bieber is co-branding with a line of nail polishes. The Biebs lent his name to a new line of Nicole nail polishes that will be exclusively available at Walmart beginning in December, and in stores like Target and Ulta after that. The polishes include reds, purples, blues and glittery shades and are titled after classic Bieber songs, like “Step 2 the Beat of My Heart” (pictured above) and “One Less Lonely Girl” (but it’s called One Less Lonely Glitter). Damn, when I was a hormonal Hanson fan they never did anything like this! Someone out there in Corporate America believes tween girls will buy anything Bieber-related … and the sad thing is, they’re probably right. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
In case you folks were thinking about masturbating in public anytime soon, let William Tyler Black be an example of what not to do. The 28-year-old substitute teacher (yes … teacher) was arrested in Florida (yes … Florida) yesterday for spreading his baby batter all over a local Walmart (yes … Walmart). Keep reading »
If you purchase a piece of clothing from Wal-Mart, beware: the retailer may be spying on you from your closet. The megastore soon plans to put radio frequency “smart tags” on all its jeans and underwear, allowing them to geo track each garment’s whereabouts. While the tags are removable, they don’t ever stop working, so Wal-Mart would at least know where you chucked your tags. Kind of creepy, huh? The measure is supposedly being employed to keep better track of inventory, but privacy critics naturally say it’s far too Big Brother-y of Wal-Mart to do such a thing. (Think about it—they could potentially know whether you’re a slob and have left your pants strewn on the floor as opposed to folding them neatly in a drawer.) Actually, they’re really more concerned that criminals will start looking at your trash to see what types of purchases you make. Keep reading »
Anyone need a cheap baby? You may be able to pick one up for a bargain at Walmart. Parents of the year, Samantha Tomasini, 20, and Patrick Fousek, 38, were arrested today for trying to SELL their six-month-old baby in the parking lot of a Walmart in California. Just take that in for a second. Would you be surprised to find out that they needed the $25 to buy meth? Nope. But you’d think at least that even the druggiest of drug addicts would try to get more than $25 for a baby. Kids, let these two be your reasons for never, ever doing drugs. Again, as I said earlier about women who have a thing for murderers, PAFU. [Daily Mail]
