Of course Joanna. I live in Red State hell so they love them some WalMart. Hell, they don't even bother to get dressed to go to WalMart. PJ's and bunny slippers are not uncommon.

People of Walmart: a collection of all the creatures that grace us with their presence at Walmart, America's favorite store.

Cold weather has some advantages - I can only IMAGINE the tats & stretch marks covered up by parka's & snowmobile suits - you actually have to SEE them.

Women with stretch marks. Snowmobiles. Wal-Mart. How gauche.

A little empathy towards the poor and the situations they were born into and why they may be different would go a long way.

Not everyone is born into the advantages that the folks on CR have enjoyed whether they recognize it or not.

As for bunny slippers and PJs, rich white teen girls do that all the time around here.

Perhaps Wal-Mart should do like the Brits (Tesco), and save the poor customers from inevitable embarrassment?

Is someone forcing the haunt cloture types to shop in Wal-Mat?

No? I didn't think so.
