HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE Review: People of Walmart: Shop and Awe


There is one place that Americans proudly shop in droves: Walmart. No matter who you are-from Snoop Dog (page 121) to the beloved green-man (page 30)-Walmart sets a place at the table for everyone!  So welcome to a world where no shoes and no shirt are no obstacles, where parking lots are filled with dead deer, Bengal tigers, and old men in thongs riding bikes. Follow the dominatrix on her quest for Winnie the Pooh Pampers. And explore the refrigerated grocery section, where chicken fingers and hairstyles are frozen in time. Once you meet the People of Walmart, you are sure to fall in love...and you might even recognize yourself walking down the aisle, captured in all of your glory.

OMG!  People of Walmart is hilarious!  I have seen my share of crazy sights at Walmart (and possibly been a crazy sight myself).  The pictures are literally laugh-out-loud funny.  This is the perfect stocking stuffer!

My significant other talked about such a book years ago. We should have beat them to the punch. LOL

my boyfriend sends me links from one of these walmart websites all the time. my friend is from a small town where the walmart is the only store...you could probably make a book off the people there alone

:) I've seen "People of Walmart" on several "bad fashion" sites and I've laughed every time. Dress how you want, but come on, do you really need to wear smiley underwear under a see through skirt w/ fishnets to get formula?

I'd love to see the book.
