Space-clearing oddities . . .

Wal-Mart is still the top-grossing spectator sport in the South, far in excess of NASCAR. Especially when one wanders through the local Wal-Mart  to peek at what’s in the various, strategically-placed bargain bins. CD’s and DVD’s have been the latest and most popular fire-lane obstructions in the chain’s loss-leader marketing.

On Thursday, I think I might have made two significant cultural discoveries in a CD bin – possible the two shortest, commercially released music CD’s in U.S. history: Kenny G Super Hits and Vanilla Ice Greatest Hits.

Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars . . . .

You go to the Wal-mart and see:

A) the couple in front of you at the checkout with the boxed collector’s DVD set of the Rambo movies and;

B) a doughy-faced teenage boy leaning out of the passenger window of a 2007 Mustang in the crosswalk and beseeching the teenage blond with “So, do ya want to hang out or something?” and the blonde replying “I’ve gotta be back at my grandmother’s” as she hangs out in front of afore-mentioned Wal-mart.

 

No wonder the dollar’s down against the euro and the Canadian dollar. At least the cherry coke afterward was good . . .
