Let’s talk about Wal-Mart.

12 Jul

As we all know, Wal-Mart is useful if, say, one wishes to buy a cheap cooler which one uses to house pig intestines for a film because the retail giant will take said cooler back as a return after you’re all through with it. However, Wal-Mart is not useful for about a million other reasons, the less obvious being that they will make your cakes unintentionally hilarious, or that they will karmically ruin your shoes with green Tabasco sauce just for shopping there.

My point is, watch this scary interactive map of the store’s disease-like growth since inception, then continue to shop only at thrift stores and/or dumpsters:

The last place in the continental U.S. to get a Wal-Mart was Montana. Montana is my new favorite state. I like its chutzpah.
