Going to WalMart (for Sailing Supplies)

It was suggested on another thread for me to find a site with like minded people as me. In thinking it over I feel I would prefer to meet real people of like minded thinking. So since I'm 5'11", 250 lbs, and will be 50 next month I have a plan.

I'm going to put on some black socks with laced black dress shoes, a tight pair of blue terry cloth short-shorts with the white trim on them, a white 'wife beater" tank top shirt that has been cut down to only come down to my belly button to show my nice hairy belly (shgirt of course can not be clean), a nice pair of those big huge wrap around sun glasses, and a straw hat!

Then go to Walmart to buy some cheap plastic glasses for the boat (told you it was a boat related story). Even if I can not find the supplies, there is bound to be a like minded group there because near as I can tell Walmart has a shopper base when almost anything fits in.

But on the off chance this doesn't work: ...... I'm dying my hair, pericing my nose/ears/lip and getting a job bagging groceries so I can buy good toliet paper for the boat (boat link)! I'm positive I can find a like minded group on this one!

maybe you can find his brother on this site: People of Walmart: a collection of all the creatures that grace us with their presence at Walmart, America's favorite store.

I think you guys need to revert back to being a colony, that way you could have access to about four thousand years of culture

Anyone who is anyone knows you never wear white to Wal-mart.

Wife beaters are sleeveless flannel shirts, w/can of Skoal in pocket
Bass Pro Shop camo hat or Wannabee Hat (Navy Seal, Veteran Hat (except WWII))
NO SHORTS.....Ass-crack jeans with blown out knees only

No thanks

At least we don't have a German Family as the Monarchy.

Well not as you would know it, Walmark recently took over ASDA one of our supermarket chains, thankfully there is still a dress code. Other major brands insist you don't wear jim jams either and quite right too.

BBC News - Tesco ban on shoppers in pyjamas

Not only are our Royals German but linked the the Russians too, Senator Joseph MaCathy would have kittens

Here in my part of FL you would fit in better with a combo of polyester trousers, belted close to you upper chest, a short sleeve shirt of a color not found in nature, topped off with a pair of orthopedic shoes to drive your hoveraround to the RV section of products. That by the way has a few items we can use in our floating homes, including specialty TP!!

Don,

Buy the plastic margarita glasses with the blue palm tree stems. Real classy :
Left ear only for the gold earring. You only die once, pay the funeral expense only once.

If you leave the Hawaiian shirt open you can still shine your belly.

I have adopted Urban Camouflage (Ukrainian pattern ) combat trousers for this season's fashion statement (paint / epoxy marks - where? ).
