I'm afraid so, or at least a cousin.
I dunno, but the duct tape was way out of place with the other items in the cart.

So.... what makes everybody think that only women would be marketed through Wal-Mart?

Well, has the customer base changed much since 2000?

Trash it all you want but when I do the food shopping on Tuesday nights there, I see a lot of very nice looking soccer moms.

Maybe she was just going to fix the bumper on her car. :)

There are 2 schools of thought on that...

One would hope, as there is automotive duct tape.
But this was the silver stuff.

"the duct tape was way out of place with the other items in the cart"

Maybe she wanted to make sure those ribbed trojies stayed on good and tight!

"You can tell a lot by a person by what is in their buggy..."

Hmmm....hadn't thought about that, but you're probably right. Let's see what you can tell about me from what was in my buggy after last night's trip to Walmart:

A box of cereal (Special K with Berries), 2 gallons of distilled water, 2 packages of rice cakes, 5 bananas, a large box of cat litter, a 24 pack of Diet Coke, a package of AA batteries, a package of walnuts, a package of almonds, an insulated water bottle (with a strap), 6 cans of tuna fish (solid white), an address book, a coupon file, a t-shirt, a small clay saucer, a small feeding dish.....and about 75 pounds of wild bird food.

I have no life?

I wonder if it is discrimination in Germany if they don't have gay, lesbian and transexual nights?

Ha,

I know a guy who is as ugly as a toad and a jerk to boot.

That guy got himself a mail order wife from Russia. One day he was a bum, and then ten months later he was a father with a beautiful wife and daughter.

I haven't seen him in a while so now I wonder how that worked out.

Add some whiskey and nipple clamps and you've got everything you need for a good weekend.

LOL! I think it is pretty obvious what THAT woman is into.

They could adopt K-Mart's tactics: "We have a red light special in aisle 4..."

"Somehow, my allergies suddenly seemed the least of concerns."

Shoulda known it was you without looking to see. Darks, you seem to be a "weird" magnet. On the other hand, some guys might find the contents of her buggy enticing.

"I've often heard people complain that Walmart is trying to take over the world. It might just be true!"

When they start installing "rendevous rooms," it's time to run like h*ll.

Woman to her friend: "Bob and I are trying to have a baby but we're having trouble getting pregnant."
Friend: "Have you tried the Walmart Fertility Department? They have a large selection of fertility treatments at everyday low prices."

Quick glance in her cart reveals the following inventory of duct tape, lacy bras (4 pair), lacy undies (4 pair), various nylons, two romance novels, and a pack of ribbed trojies.

... one gross of bungee cords, 100 feet of nylon rope, a fake bear rug, six tubes of superglue, a planter of cattails, a gallon of Wesson oil, and a tube of lithium grease.

Yeah, I must have some sort of sign in the air above my head that only the truly twisted can see.
Though, to be fair, she didn't ~seem~ twisted.
But I'd still like to know what the duct tape was for.

What can I say? 9ot much really)

The items were enormously out of synch with each other.

No, I can probably guess based off of the conversation she struck up.
But still... it was rather.. interesting to see that grouping of items.
