Laughing at America's Expense

Posted by on Thu, Jul 5, 2012 at 9:54 AM

Yes, it's old. Yes, yes, yes, and all of that sort of thing. But it still made me laugh.

Oh, the people that sign is aimed at can count up to that 16th item. They just don't want to. Different problem.

I find it interesting that the picture is from Safeway, but the caption identifies it as Walmart.

It is fake, considering how the sign is from a Safeway, the post identifies it as Wal-Mart, and you can see Best Buy signs behind it.

Also, if you look at the sign behind it, it has a totally different layout, graphics, and spacing, despite saying the same thing.

Also, pixels, I have seen a few...blah blah

@4: I see, that was a part of the "yes, yes, yes,"

But with the Stranger's track record with other internet hoaxes...

Not saying it's not fake (I recognized the Safeway branding, too) but the Best Buy logo on the sign in the background is advertising gift cards. You can find all manner of gift cards for other stores at Safeways and QFCs.
