INTRODUCTION

To understand how we got the idea for People of Walmart, think back to your last trip to Wally World. Focus on everything you saw from the time you got out of your car in the parking lot, to picking up your supplies or groceries, to checking out and leaving. That car you saw with all the action figures glued to it-that's how we got the idea. That lady breast-feeding her kid who actually turned out to be a man breastfeeding someone else's kid-that is what inspired us. That 400-pound lady you saw but couldn't determine whether she had less teeth or clothes-she was our muse.

It's been more than three years now and we still have to say, "Holy Shit! We can't believe we are still around." The reason we are still kickin' is because of you guys. When we first started we had a simple blog with some funny pictures, but your insatiable appetite for the bizarre just couldn't be subdued, and you needed even more sick and twisted content to feed that hunger. So we listened, and we brought you stories and videos and our overflowing hate mail.

Soon your lust for laughter was so great that it could no longer be satisfied by our tiny little...website? Ya we'll go with website there. So you pushed us to give you what you wanted. We created the Three Ring Blog network with more than 25 different humor blogs to fulfill almost everyone's needs. You like chicks with nice butts? GirlsinYogaPants.com. Wanna see bubba's redneck ass fix something? WhiteTrashRepairs.com. Stupid drunk people? LateNightMistakes.com has you covered. You want some funny cats? Look somewhere else, because we don't like cats. Let's just say for the most part, we have whatever you need to get through your shitty day.

Over the years, and with all of our different websites, you would think our senses would have dulled to the crazy, gross, and nasty, but I'm still amazed by the amount of pictures, videos, and stories that you guys send in that still leave our jaws hanging on the ground. It really is because of all of you that we have grown into what we are now. So keep visiting the site, keep sending in great material, and we'll continue to keep you smiling. In the past three years there have been plenty of funny sites that have popped up and just as quickly faded away, but it's because of you guys that we've stuck around to keep entertaining the world. We like to think of ourselves like a nice pair of cutoff jorts-scary to look at, but never really go out of style. Actually scratch that, jorts were never really in style, but we still encourage others to wear them so you guys can take their picture.

So, there you have it. That, my friends, is how three assholes came up with PeopleofWalmart.com and how it blossomed into the beautiful flower it is today. Love it or hate it, our site is a reflection of our glorious nation and everyone's favorite place to shop. So either get on board or change your clothes, because one way or another you are a part of People of Walmart!

Since my Dad always forwards the emails he gets with the photos of people shopping Walmart who SHOULD have known better than to wander out of the house dressed as they are I thought he needed this. Has provided MANY a chuckle since Christmas morning. I recommend this book and the "sequel" to anyone who needs a laugh OR for Moms who've ever said "Oh you are NOT leaving this house dressed like THAT!!"

Lock the doors and windows and swear that you'll never do anything naughty again or the people in WalMart will get you. No need for horror movies to give a fright -- just do a little discount shopping and prepare for the worst, 'cause it's definitely there... waiting for you... at WalMart!

This book is roar-out-loud hilarious, and not to be missed. Now you can bring the horror home to the rest of the family!

By the way... Why are these people never seen in Target? Do they have a dress code or something? Just wondering.

It has funny pictures, book quality poor. It looked very cheaply printed. It makes it hard to enjoy the book.
