Strangely Wal Mart

We all know that strange things can be found at Walmart--go here to see some of the strangest--but in China you can find things that we would NEVER see here in the US.  Now, this doesn't mean these things are BAD, per se, just different and strange in our way of thinking.  I don't know of anyplace in the US where you will find crocodiles or dried reptiles sold in a Walmart.  But then again, I COULD be wrong.  Here is an article titled 16 Items They Only Sell At Chinese Walmarts.  After you click the link, come back and discuss.

There are many, many things that are scary about Walmart--and the people are just the beginning. ;)

eww!! talk about culture clash! Imagine being in China, needing something like, say, an umbrella, and going in there unawares, thinking "Oh, Wal-Mart! Everything they have back home!" and seeing all that!
