A Good Friday shopping trip to Wal-Mart!

If you're looking for a standard "Huh. Wal-Mart. So Lame. Ha ha!" screed, you won't find it here. I shop at Wal-Mart frequently because they have a lot of stuff I want all in one place and I save some serious money in the process, and I don't apologize for it. Yes, I know they sell guns and they censor things and smaller merchants who sell more high quality goods can't compete with them and they probably do all kinds of other things that wouldn't make me happy, but times are tough and I need to save every penny I can. Plus, I once saw the owner of an independent book store where I used to shop kick his dog (true story). So there's that.

Anyway, I had to go shopping today (Good Friday), in no small part because I went to change the cat litter this morning and discovered I was out of new, clean litter...only after having dumped the old, dirty stuff, and found the visit to be unusually spiritual in nature. So in the spirit of holiday sharing, I thought I would share what I found with you...

I don't find the idea that God might communicate via written correspondence on a bumper sticker to be all that outlandish. Someone who once conveyed information via smoldering topiary might choose to upgrade to a not-quite-modern-but-still-proven-to-be-reliable format while waiting to see if Twitter is more than a passing fad. What instills doubt is the passive aggressive tone of the reply. Someone who floods an entire planet to make a point probably doesn't write like a pissy little 17-year-old who wasn't invited to the prom.

Sorry, dudes. Looks like we'll have to find another place for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Kegger (find an egg, drink a beer...)

I saw this Easter basket on top of a nearby Coke machine while I was waiting in line to check out. The line was long and slow moving so in my head, I played the Word Game shown here to help pass the time. However, the last word stumped me and I had to look at the answer key to figure it out. Yes, I am being serious. I was then allowed to operate a motor vehicle and drive home without a guardian or emergency vehicle escort on all four sides of me. Yes, I am being serious about that as well.

What if The Rapture occurred and only one guy was taken...?
Hey, Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy Whatever It Is You're Celebrating Right Now to you, yours, y'alls and everybody who I might have neglected to mention!

So ... let's just talk about The Rapture for a momentito.

Would that the photo above was post-Rapture, the natural thought in Rupe's mind is:

The dude/dudess Raptured was wearing nothing more than flipflops in public when taken?

(The Good News: he/she was able to toss his/her refuse into the bin in time .....)

I think it was the last second recycling that did it: "Well, there must be SOMEBODY worth taking...Hey, that hippie just tossed a Mountain Dew bottle in the waste can. Get him!"
