It’s time for the Weird Walmart News! We’ve got a great one for you today, let’s get started.
Woman names her baby after Walmart – So here’s the story in a nutshell. Darla Hart is a native Kentuckian, born and bred. She decides to name her baby after Walmart, naming her Walma Hart. Just say it fast, you get it. Walmart sends her $50 in coupons as a thank you, so she changes her own name to Darla Walmart-Hart. Stay classy, Kentucky. Here’s the one caveat, every single article I found to try to confirm the story references the original story on Stuppid.com which just screams “FAKE” so I’m not 100% sure that this actually happened. If someone knows Darla, send her my way. I want to interview her!
Lawyer: Insanity defense in Wal-Mart stabbing – Dude stabs a Walmart manager now his lawyer claims he is insane. I’m no expert but judging by his mugshot, the lawyer may be on to something.
Judge OKs Class Action Suit Against Walmart – Have you ever bought something at one Walmart, returned it at another and got less back than what you paid because of the difference in sales tax? If so, you might be eligible to join this class action suit. I imagine you could get back DOZENS of pennies.
Family of Comic Killed in Tracy Morgan Crash Settles With Wal-Mart – Walmart doesn’t admit culpability and the settlement amount is not disclosed.
Man Tackles, Chokes Armed Walmart Shopper – Black man puts his licensed and registered handgun in his holster, under his coat and walks into Walmart to shop. So far, this story plays out exactly as it does hundreds of times a day in my home state of Texas. (We are all armed. No, seriously. All of us.) Then things take a turn. A white man sees the black man with his gun (licensed, registered, in a holster, under a jacket) and tackles him to the ground and puts him in a choke hold while screaming “He’s got a gun”. All of this while the poor attackee is screaming “I’ve got a permit” to no avail. Wow.
