With some 3,750 U.S. stores visited by customers 140 million times a week, it’s not uncommon for a Wal-Mart store to be the location of strange news headlines. Ranging from hip-hop videos to rare rodent sightings, a recent WSJ article documents the weirder things that have gone down in Wal-Mart stores over the last decade.
Some of my favorites:
- Stafford, VA,: Man dressed in a cow suit, crawling on all fours steals 26 gallons of milk from a Wal-Mart and then hands them out Robin Hood-style to patrons in a parking lot
- Falmouth, MA: Shopper finds 10 human teeth inside a wallet for sale that was imported from Asia.
- Maryland: Man goes to the emergency room with toilet seat stuck to him after pranksters doused a Wal-Mart restroom with super glue.
- Wasilla, AK: As Governor, Sarah Palin officiates a wedding at the Wal-Mart in her hometown.
