I don't believe I had the courage or stomach to make it to page 70-..believe me I tried~!
Let me check it..
I couldn't make it past page 7 or so...lmao
But, the oddest thing..
Remember a couple of years when we had the couple camped near us??
The gal who lived in her bathing suit??
I reckon that one on page 7, looks sorta like her..Halllllloweeeenie~~

A few years ago, I was on just one of my all-too-frequent soap box rants, this time about women wearing inappropriate clothing in public - tube tops on a 350 lb. woman when 1/2 of that weight was in her just barely covered "chest" and an astounding belly flopping around for all to enjoy, who was also prancing about in low slung super super skin tight pants so all of us could enjoy her butt crack. If we'd have been in a grocery store, I'd of thought this lady was attempting to steal cantelopes & watermelons. I remember ending this rant with the question "I have to wonder why that lady is dressed that way?" only to be told "Why silly!! She has every right to dress herself "in style"! And she made that comment without even cracking a smile. She actually thought me to be insensitive and that her answer "put me in my place" as a judgmental pig. Well, that's the last time I ever bought HER a $6 cup of burnt coffee!!

I've decided that my living & working overseas for 25+ years has left me totally unable to understand a fair percentage of today's celebrity obsessed child-like "adults". And not only that, but also wondering where these people's parents were when they were young enough to be tought better.

This rant is now over folks. Sorry. I really should put that damn soap box on the burn pile.

So when did making fun of the way people look become so popular and acceptable?

With the costumes, I would think it were they that were making fun of themselves.

Good observation, wheel interested.

WalMart attracts bargain shoppers from all walks of life. This includes those on public assistance and disability due to physical impairments and/or mental illness. For whatever reason, judgment may be impaired, sense of self distorted and reflected in their appearance----or they simply believe for whatever reason and lifestyle that their choice of attire is appropriate.

oh boy... sounds like one of your pix got posted

j/k

not 'making fun' here... my idea of fun is tripping dwarves- sorry, vertically challenged people...

seriously, it's pathetic that I have to shield my childrens eyes from walking pornography in a Walmart.

" Hi, I'm not rich, have never been rich, but I have been dirt poor. I buy some things at Wal-Mart to save money and not everything is made in China, but every store, even the upscale stores [Nordstroms] have racks and racks full of stuff made in China. One example was when we had dogs. A certain brand and size of dog shampoo was sold at Petsmart for $12.95 and the same exact shampoo was sold at Wal-Mart for $2.97 per bottle. [that's not just small change] I'm retired now and like all the old people used to say to me, "I'm on a fixed income", and I don't want to waste what little I have, because of pride or principle. I also shop at Target and Costco a lot. And this wonderful internet has saved me a lot of money too. [Amazon Etc.]"
How did I miss this??
I would like to say this..You're forgiven. I am guilty as well..But, I have turned a new leaf. NO MORE CHINA~! It's not gonna be easy to do without..but, I want the jobs to stay in the USA..SCREW CHINA..BAN ME..GO AHEAD..

53Flying Cloud-excellent point. Buy USA and buy local!! You can find these characters everywhere not just Walmart-ever go to your county fair and people watch? I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder and life would be dull if we all looked, dressed and acted the same.
