    People Watchin': Taken to a new level

    From CNN:
    Viral Web site mocks Wal-Mart customers

    (CNN) -- It's a blog where people post, and make fun of, pictures of out-of-shape, poorly dressed and otherwise awkward people shopping at Wal-Mart.

    And, in less than a month, with no marketing to speak of, it's become the toast of the Internet.

    "People of Wal-Mart," a gag started by two 20-something brothers and their buddy to share crazy pictures with their friends, has gone viral. Promoted largely on sites like Digg and Funny or Die -- and linked ad nauseam on Facebook and Twitter -- the site picked up enough traffic to crash its servers on Wednesday.

    And here's the People of Walmart website:
    People of Walmart: a collection of all the creatures that grace us with their presence at Walmart, America's favorite store.

    Some funny and disturbing stuff on there. And a question, when did mullets come back in style?

    I think it's fairly obvious that all the pictures were taken with cell phone cameras. Hard to prohibit someone taking their phone to the store with them.

    Re: People Watchin': Taken to a new level

    Funny website, I was talking to a friend about this while we were actually in Wal-Mart, and one of the employees overheard me and gave me a dirty look. I noticed it, then decided to loudly tell my friend that the site emphasized on the shoppers of Wal-Mart, not employees.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.
