I am not sure why the site is down right now, but when it comes back up, be sure to pop by and take a look. This site totally rips everyone - and focuses on the "kind of people" who visit Wal-Mart.

One of my favorite parts is kind of an LOL Cats, but with pictures of people going into Wal Mart.

so, let's hope it recovers. As sites go, it's both evil and a hoot



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

There was a writeup about it yesterday on Time.com Click Here (time.com) and it mentioned that now that the site has gone viral, traffic went up 700% at one point last week. They're getting slammed with new visitors.

My parents retired out to St. George, Utah - the same city in which Warren Jeffs was on trial. My dad likes to hit up the Walmart to scope out the polygamists who come out from Colorado City. Yeah, Walmart's got some interesting "clientele folk".

In fairness to Walmart - the FLDS also shop at Home Depot.

You would think that after the whole Skanks in NYC blog / Google case of just a week or two ago people would begin to realize that you can't just say anything you like about someone on the internet anymore.

Actually before I was a parent I thought that way, but sometimes little kids are just going to get upset and there isn't much you can do. Granted I would usually leave the store after a little bit if he wouldn't settle down, but sometimes you have to get your shopping done and deal with it. These days it doesn't bother me at all because I understand it can't always be controlled. I feel bad for the parents because I know you feel embarassed when it happens to your kid.

I feel what you're saying, but sometimes it is totally the parents fault. C'mon now.

I understand but it can always be controlled. It takes repeated, consistent behavior on the part of the parent. Our daughter learned quite early that whn I said "X" would happen if she didn't behave, "X" happened.

Example, she was four and we were in avery nice eating establishment. She was misbehaving badly. I informed her that with one more stunt, she and I were out of there so her cousin and mother could finish eating and we would sit outside till they were done. I informed her I would carry her out under my arm if it came to that. She tested and I did exactly what I said.

Yes kids misbehave and lose it but no matter how inconvenient, it has to be addressed stat. We did stop in the middle of shopping and drive 30 miles home when she acted up. It was inconvenient but it didn't take many times to get the message accross. The only times she slipped up were when she was really tired.

I am not trying to come down on you or anybody else but with young ones, it is always the parents ultimate responsibility. To often parents think that with young children, no concessions need to be made regarding your lifestyle. That is selfish and wrongheaded.

And it sounds to me like you did control you child's behavior.

Exactly, Doc. I remember fireman-carrying a screaming four year old out of the Barnes & Noble one day when my son wouldn't put the Thomas trains down without buying one. I told him I was going to carry him out and when he didn't settle down, I did. He's almost 12 now and he remembers that day.

I'm not talking about four year olds, of course they should and can be controlled better. A baby or two year old in many cases is way different than a four year old. By that age yes, you're right. But a year in age makes a huge difference when that young.

Keep in mind, this wasn't a parent disciplining a child. This was a complete stranger slapping a two-year-old in the face four times.

That ain't right.
