Evil Empire sending more Death Stars to Canada!

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Oh goody.

Just the news I like to see on what is already a dreary and grey Ottawa day.

Walmart is planning on opening 40 so-called “supercenters” in Canada by year’s end. They claim it will generate 9,200 jobs.

Having never set foot inside one of these dens of phthalates and underpaid labour,  I really have no idea what a “supercenter” consists of?

Super-sized customers?

Super-crappy products?

Supercilious managers?

Superficial adherence to basic health and safety requirements?

Or the fact that these blue boxes plopped in the middle of everywhere are a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious blight on the landscape.

Sigh.

Clean-up in aisle 4…

Those of you who have known me for a while are aware of my complete, utter and unequivocal disdain for the Evil Empire (Walmart). I think this way for a number of reasons:

  • The negative impact of these stores on urban development
  • Their aversion to unions
  • They alone are responsible for 85% of cheap crap imported from places like China and India
  • A corporate culture that borders on religious

And I could go on and on.

Yet, even from the depths of something so insidious can rise something funny. And so it is the case here. The Resident Love Goddess was pointed to this site that posts random pics of Walmart shoppers; and some are freaking hilarious!

Check it out here if you are in need of a good chuckle or two!

Here’s an example:
