I'm in UR Wal-Martz wearing UR Nazi shurts

So tonight I went to Wal-Mart looking for Alternators Camshaft and some Nazi shirts. Friday night I found out on the intertron that through some corporate buffoonery Wal-Mart is selling t-shirts with Nazi skulls on them. My innate internet nerd bandwagon reflex set in and I decided to check it out for myself the next time I was in town. Supposedly they started a recall on the shirts that was to have wiped them from the shelves within two days, but as of Sunday night they were still available in Rapid City.



So we got there tonight and when my wife took the picture of me holding the shirt, a Wal-Mart employee lady came up to us and asked us what we were doing. All I could think to ask was, "Does this Nazi shirt make me look fat?" She tried to stop us on the grounds that taking pictures inside Wal-Mart is against the law. I asked what law that was and she said it was enacted because people were perpetrating eBay scams with pictures of Wal-Mart merchandise. Oh whatever.

So we started talking to this obviously insane lunatic and sure enough, she kept saying more and more weird and outrageous things. When I explained to her I just wanted a picture with the currently interweb infamous Nazi shirt, she said that was cool as long as we weren't eBay scammers. WTF? After we discussed the controversial image she said she didn't think it was all that bad of a logo to have on a shirt compared to some of the other crap they were selling. Awesome! Forget Nazis, she was more concerned with the messages Wal-Mart was sending by selling shirts that promoted the evil Texaco corporation and the sexually promiscuous Smokey and the Bandit.

i guess the reason walmart hasn't pull them off the shelves is because the nazi demographic shops at walmart. Reaching out for the customers perhaps? Of course i'm kidding, i often shopped at walmart, but the delay in responding to this start giving the rest of us some bad ideas about the whole thing. cheers.

Forget the Nazis, I wish Wal-Mart would pull those cheesy Thundercats t-shirts they sell because those promote people being furries.

Not only that, but they're calling people bad names with the whole "Thundercats, ho!" thing.
