A man, who had just been released from the hospital for injuries from a domestic dispute (aka his girlfriend hit him with a frying pan and a table leg), stole $50 from her at a local Walmart and attempted to escape on one of their motorized scooters. He didn’t get away. The end.
And while looking for an image for this post, I came across this little gem. It’s called the “CruizinCooler.” Jackpot.

Hi, remember me? Yeah, it’s been awhile. Sowwy.
Lots of things have contributed to my lack of posting (turns out I had swine flu!), but no need to dwell on the past (oink, oink). To the future!
There have been SO MANY THINGS I have wanted to post about, and my wonderful friends continue to send me quirky things on the interwebs that they know I will adore– like this video from my friend Laura. I think I’ve watched it five times.
Or this Web site, www.peopleofwalmart.com, which has been sent to me by faithful readers Miguel and Civil War Dave.
These times are crazier than ever. Jon and Kate do nothing but fight, Fox News’ Shep Smith is starting to sound like a socialist fascist communist Democrat, the Republicans are threatening to teabag the American people and Jessica Simpson’s dog was eaten by a coyote! Yikes! Those are clearly the most important things going on in the world today.
And as if life in general wasn’t dangerous enough, Alexander McQueen has decided to introduce TEN INCH high heels to the world:
Grosssssss. I don’t know, but something about them reminds me of giraffe hooves (I’m a nature girl), which is oddly appropriate. There are more, you can see them here.
But hey, at least one thing is right in this world. Jim and Pam are getting hitched tonight! RAWR!

We here at SWTCTW love us some Kurt Vonnegut. Apparently, we are not alone in our love for him. Some suspect someone in marketing for Wal-Mart does too…here is the old Wal-Mart logo:
Okay, that’s good. But here’s the new one. Notice also they took the hyphen out! Now it is spelled exactly how people want it to be spelled! It’s not hard to just suck it up and put the hyphen in, people, but whatev:
And here is the drawing that Vonnegut did of his own asshole (not joking) in “Breakfast of Champions”:
The asterisk was symbolic for Vonnegut, and that is why some people are pointing this out to Wal-Mart, or should I now write, Walmart. I think it’s a little bit of stretch myself, but I get how people can connect it. Hell, you can connect Vonnegut to anything. He was just that good. So what about Walmart’s new logo? If you care, click here to read an article on MSN about what it means, etc. Or I could just summarize. The logo is “friendlier”. I love friendly! Right now I have an urge to drive down to my local 24 hour Walmart, just to say hello! And maybe pick up the ingredients to make guacamole.
