AUUUUGGHHHH!! IT'S ONLY NOV. 5TH!

Good grief!!

I just saw a Christmas commercial, courtesy of WalMart. (Sigh...)

There is no shame any more...

Oh c'mon! What rox have you been hiding under? K-Mart has been running their's (layaway) since 2nd week of October. Home Depot had the merchandise in the store the last week of September!

Not product placement, a 30-second spot with Carol of the Bells playing and happy, thin WalMart employees (read: ACTORS, you've never seen anyone that good-looking actually working there) flashing their register lights on and off in time with the various bell tones. Theme of the ad was WalMart has extra registers open to make your holiday shopping easier.

The K-Mart ads were about layaway, not really just focused on Christmas (although you know that's the undertone) and displays in stores have been moving back for years. A couple of years ago I saw a Walgreens that had their holiday plates (Thanksgiving-autumn themed and Christmas theme as well) advertised sometime in July.

But full-blown Christmas shopping ads this early? That's a first in my memory.

It has to be Bush's fault, right?

I think that is a paraphrase of what McCain was thinking for the last month....

If you have to go to Wal*Mart, go find that Wal*Mart Bingo TK posted a while ago, print it out, and take it with you.


here it is:



I did pretty well on my last outing there, alas no bingo.

It'd be fun to print out a few hundred of them and pass them out to people entering Wally World.
