Weird Things Happen at Walmart: 'Retail's Version of Reality T.V.


The Unintentional Center of Weirdness in Contemporary American Life

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.
