    Now all that cart is missing is a pretend strap on pregnancy belly, a 6 month old baby to put in the front of the cart, and a t-shirt that says “yoga makes me flexible”.

      Don’t forget sweats that say ‘Juicy’ across the derriere.

      Aw, come on. Sure the t-shirt slogan is a dead ringer for a Wal-Mart patron, but is a mother with a kid and 1 on the way now the typical (however unpopular) Wal-Mart shopper? Sigh.

      Even though my second kid’s been around for about 2 months now, I guess online shopping is in store for me.

      I’m kind of joking but I’m kind of insulted at the same time.

        @apronk: i was referring to a certain celebrity who was caught at wal-mart with this t-shirt on, not necessarily the general wal-mart population.

    FLUFF! Dead rats are icky…

    I love the juxtaposition of the Bank of America building with the Fireworks Supermarket Aftermath.

    Are you suggesting someone take action to merge the two or is it just a coincidence? Hmmm.

    Woohoo, she made Consumerist! That WalMart cart picture is my daughter’s. She’s 2.5 and has her own digital camera and actually knows how to use it. Be sure to check out her other pictures. :-)

    that rat is smokin’

  7. ohenry says:

    I love the lighting in the rat picture. The background looks all mysterious, like “What does this dead smoke sucking rodent hide behind its deceased self? You’ll never know.”

    That oven is VINTAGE. I bet it buzzes when the timer goes off. Beeping is generic; Buzzing is classic.
