FROM THE OFFICE CREW COMES SUPERSTORE

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

I haven’t watched Superstore yet, no television and all that, but I’ll order the DVD from the library when copies are available. This was my favorite bit from Brian Moylan review in Superstore: Walmart-inspired sitcom isn’t such a bad deal for The Guardian: Do they ever leave the store? No. Really? Who wants to spend […]

WALMART IS EVVIIILLLL…

Sunday, April 10th, 2016

Well, yes, Walmart is evil, but not in the way conspiracy kook C. Ervana would like you to believe. I ought not to be surprised that the conspiracy theories surrounding the mysterious closing of five stores last year continue; after all, 27 percent of Americans will believe anything. Just in case you had even a […]

ARE POLICE SEEKING THE EASTER BUNNY…?

Monday, April 4th, 2016

Did witnesses report a white fluffy rodent with long ears and a wicker basket over one arm answering to the name Harvey? Hmmm, could be. However, station KLFY in Acadiana reports: The Louisiana State Police bomb squad has detonated a suspicious package found in the parking lot of the Walmart on Creswell Lane in Opelousas. […]

HOW TO SELL TO A MIDDLE CLASS IT DESTROYED…

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

I don’t always appreciate Bill Maher’s humor, but he hits enough home runs to make me ignore the foul tips and infield pop-ups. Especially when he points out how clueless businesses can be when they listen to their own flackery. (Note: I mentioned the Gun Oil story back on 23 September.) In my ongoing quest […]

HILARIOUS EPIC FAIL ON WALMART GUN OIL…

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

This has to be one of the most hilarious product-placement mistakes of all time. Writing in Man Uncovers ‘Epic, Hysterical Fail on Walmart’s Part’ After Checking Out ‘Gun Oil’ Product at the Gun Counter Dave Urbanski sets coffee to spewing from noses. Jamie Lee Bracey said he was in a Walmart in Florence, Alabama, last […]

COULD THE RAISES DAMAGE THIS CARING…?

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Despite the reports of intra-Walmart squabbles engendered by the pay raises, I think Walmart workers, especially those at the bottom of the pay scale, will remain compassionate and supportive of each other. The challenge will be to not let management divide and conquer. Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.

WALLY WORLD… WANKER MART…

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

At first glance, readers might think John Backderf’s labeling of a Walmart store Wanker Mart is a perfect example of Bionic Mosquito’s view that haters of Walmart hate the customers. I don’t think that is what Derf had in mind. I doubt that he thinks those who shop at Walmart are wankers, but rather that […]

LOVING WALMART IS ALL ABOUT FREEDOM…?

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

Freedom to choose is only a freedom if you have the access and wherewithal to choose. This is the unpleasant reality that those with the ability to make a choice choose to conveniently ignore. Arguments like these are only a small step away from those who suggest that women in abusive relationships or even those […]

ACTUAL WALMART JOB APPLICATION (NOT!)…

Friday, March 27th, 2015

What follows below is the Walmart version of an internet meme started by comedian Greg Bulmash who first posted his take on what a smart ass teenager might put on a McDonald’s job application back in 1997. NAME: Kenneth Way (Grumpy Old Fart) SEX: Not lately, but I am looking for the right woman (or […]

YAY WALMART, NO SERIOUSLY, YAY WALMART…!

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

Fast forward to the 3:05 time mark if you must, but come on, how many people would ever expect Jon Stewart to deliver a positive message for Walmart? Perhaps because the company recognizes that with millions of employees on the payrolls, statistically there is no way to ignore the fact that there are members of […]

WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO POSSIBLY SAY…?

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

Well, Fortune did have this question: Why this sweet-looking horse is a major headache for Wal-Mart? and this from Business Insider: Wal-Mart is reportedly furious over this hilarious website and wants to shut it down. Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.

WALMARTING OUR SOCIAL NETWORKS…

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

I’m not sure when Walmart became a meme, yet there is no denying that for the past 30 years or so, the Bentonvile Behemoth has come to hold a place in our collective consciousness. That place, however, is seldom a positive one. Even those who shop there, for whatever reasons—but never to buy toothpaste, please—seldom […]

WILL WAL-TERMS ENTER THE OED…?

Friday, February 6th, 2015

I am reminded of how Dan Savage ran a contest several years ago for a new definition for santorum. The winning selection was as unflattering to the former U.S. Senator and failed presidential hopeful as any could be. I count 200 suggested meanings for Walmart and associated terms in the Urban Dictionary. The problem is, […]
