When I visit my hometown in central Maine, the trip to Wal-Mart is always an adventure. As I walk down the aisles, I love to entertain myself by seeing how many mullets I can spot. Have I ever left the store not seeing one? Come on, we’re talking central Maine and Wal-Mart. They rock the mullet like it’s 1989.People of Walmart Website
It seems that I’m not the only one amused by the crowds at Wal-Mart. Today I just discovered the website People of Walmart. Is this a fansite for the megastore. No way! Here’s how the creators describe PeopleofWalmart.com:
“People of Walmart was founded in August of 2009 by three friends and roommates after an inspirational trip to WalMart. Let’s face it; we all have seen the people who obviously don’t have mirrors and/or family and friends to lock them in a basement, and they all seem to congregate at Walmart. It’s not everywhere that you can shop for milk at 10 a.m. next to a 400lb mother of 6 wearing a pink tube top, leopard tights, and hooker heels”
After learning about People of Walmart, I let out a sigh of relief. At least I now know that unsightly people at Wal-Mart isn’t limited to central Maine.
Are you offended by the idea of this website? Well sir, I’d say that your picture may already be posted. I’m totally jealous I didn’t think of this concept. But then I’d never have the guts to sneak up behind a family wearing stone washed jeans just so I could snap their photo. Apparently a lot of people think it’s a cool concept too because the website has crashed! Check back tomorrow and hopefully then you can get your fill of rats tails and hammer pants.People of Walmart Website
