We’ve been covering this Wal-Mart in Missouri accused of refusing to sell “immoral” purple Mardi Gras ribbon. Eagle-eyed reader Beth took a close look at some of the pictures the NoCoast blog posted to support their claim.
We earlier reported that a Missouri Wal-Mart might be refusing to stock ribbons useable for Mardi Gras decorations. Jon asserts that when he tried to buy purple ribbon, he was told Mardi Gras was immoral, un-Christian, caused rape, and he was escorted from the store by Wal-Mart employees.

We’ve never quite gotten the knack of smoking cigarettes. While friends of ours twirl a zippo across their knuckles like a small blue steel ball spouting flame, then clamp down upon a smoke with the effortless, anti-authoritative sneer of James Dean, the best we can manage is a fag prissily inserted between our pursed lips. When we inhale, we inevitably start coughing, the cigarette goes tumbling out of our mouths and burns its way through our pants. Next thing we know, we’re applying salve to our groins for the next 72 hours.
