Headbangers Ball, Vol. 2

I've always been under the impression that WalMart was a family-oriented sort of establishment. So when I searched walmart.com for a backyard wading pool, I was a bit surprised that only one result came up.

I was even more surprised at what it was.

Then I saw that the search engine had interpreted "kiddie pool" as "kid die pool," and I was surprised that anything had come up at all.

You know what?

I don't even want to know.

No kidding. (kid ding?)

And the awful thing is, I can't find a single store around here that will sell me a little wading pool.

Arrggh.

You know... Our crazy society has successfully managed to devise so many "new" and "innovative" products that are completely insane that trying to find the one item you actually CARE about, something simple and basic that doesn't have the officially licensed character-shaped bells and whistles that will break after two days of use anyway, is nearly impossible. Why in heavens name does one need a kiddie pool that plays poor quality musical sounds for an extra 30 smackers anyway? And who in their right mind decided to create an outdoor kiddie pool that requires BATTERIES? Doesn't combining small children, electricity, and water just scream "Bad idea!"

People are weird...

Anyway, I'll end my rant now. Sorry you're having such a hard time finding a simple pool...
