Tons of –
- New Photos!
- Bad Decisions!
- WTF Moments!
- Fan Stories!
From the wildly popular website PeopleofWalmart.com, this photo collection of Americans in their natural shopping habitat (70 percent of which is brand new and never before included on the website) presents people of all shapes and sizes wearing and doing everything imaginable in full view of their fellow shopping public. Plus, for the first time brand-new fan-submitted stories offer the most random experiences you can imagine!
So welcome to a world where no shoes and no shirt are no obstacles, where parking lots are filled with dead deer, Bengal tigers, and old men in thongs riding bikes. Once you meet the People of Walmart, you are sure to fall in love.
If you've ever been to the popular site, People of Walmart, then you'll know what you're in for with People of Walmart: Shop and Awe: a lot of...interesting, funny pictures with good captions to go along. The first few fan submitted stories didn't impress me all that much, but there are definitely some good ones that had me laughing. At some points my whole family had gathered around to read this along with me, and they were either disgusted (I have never seen such big, exposed "back boobs" in my life) or laughing (oddly enough, one of these men featured in a photo looks a little too much like my dad). People of Walmart: Shop and Awe will be sure to satisfy loyal fans of the site as well as the new crowd that they'll get with the book. It was a whole lot of fun to read!
Even though this is an adult book, would it be OK to give it to my kid? There's quite a bit of language, and one picture where a woman exposes pretend breasts (although at first glance I thought they were real).
