Shameless self-promotion

Today's Check it Out.

Regular bloggees will recognize the bulk of this from my rambling "Pretty in Pink" post that nobody read. However, it has been shortened, tightened and cleaned up for official publication. This transformation is something us writers like to call "the creative process." Think of the blog as my demo and the paper as my album.

While Steve was paying $16 for his four DVDs, some Wal-Mart employee was applying for Medicaid, a third world teenager was finishing up her 14 hour shift, two locally owned mom & pop shops filed for bankruptcy, and an entire town had its soul sucked dry.

But way to go, Steve. Way to buy that shitty movie for cheap.

The employee on medicaid finally had the opportunity to get his/her GED

The third world teenager was able to avoid being turned into a prostitute since she had a job
The mom and pop store were buying from the same aforementioned teenager, but the community was tired of being gouged by their 210% mark up.
Wal-Mart created 125K new jobs last year...
Way to go Steve, for helping people to work, get educated, and save third world people from prostitution.

I think you touched a nerve here stevie boy. I did not know Walmart handed such generous scholarships. Let's see $30,000 (cost of college) divided by $2,000 is 15 years. Wow looks like something I should look into. I would love to go to school for 15 years. 120 credits divided by 15 is....uh that's 1 multiply by 15, subtract from 12 gives me 3, bring down the 0, divide by 15 again, that gives me 3. Ok stay with me here, I got both my shoes off. 13 credits divided by 2 semesteres per year is...um...damn I hate when it don't come out even. Well never mind, it's to get ready for work. I are a photo tech for Willy Mart. By By ya'll.
