Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Here's one item the House Blond won't find under the tree this year.
Word has it the Wal-Mart yanked the offending undies off the shelves in the adolescent department after parental complaints. That would be the key I suppose--on your wife? Cute. On your thirteen year old daughter? Not so much.
To be sure, Wal-Mart is free to offer goods for sale and is also free to withdraw said items from public sale after potential customers burn up the phone lines with invective.
Cue the tedious outrage in 10, 9, 8.......
For days to come we'll hear how this outrage evidences the latest moral decline of America's vagrant youth into the bottomless abyss of lipstick parties and designer drugs, hastened by our evil corporate culture where the only concern is turning a buck.
The other guys, who routinely beat up Wal-Mart for having (gasp) cheap prices that allow poor people to buy cool stuff, will temporarily switch sides to finger wag about cultural conservatives and how closed-minded censorship is forcing reactionary moral values onto the entire society in the name of protecting the children.
Not sure I'd work up the ire to complain but I dang sure wouldn't buy any for my daughter.
Note to all: Take Nancy's advice. Just Say No!
Full Disclosure: TWC LOL at the whole thing.
Full Story: Here.
