Nazi Skull Shirt Still On Shelves, 11/30

Nineteen days after Wal-Mart's PR firm promised to remove this shirt from the shelves and six days after my phone call with a Wal-Mart apparel department manager, who also promised to remove the shirt, the Nazi SS Skull shirt REMAINS ON WAL-MART'S SHELVES!!! On a visit to my local store today (11/30), the shirt was still on display and in good supply. I counted 5 shirts, which seemed to be their average supply as most of the other shirts had no more than 5 on the rack. I will continue to follow this story until the shirt is finally removed. Perhaps a call is due to Wal-Mart's corporate office...

Best Buy Spells iPod, "I-pod"

This photo was taken at my local Best Buy on Black Friday. Being an electronics store, they really should know how to correctly spell iPod. Tisk Tisk. The photo in this post is hereby released under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License

Wed. 11/22, Nazi Skull Shirt Still On Sale

After my visit on Saturday, I called Wal-Mart and spoke with a manager about the shirt. She assured me that she would immediately look into this issue. Well, I payed Wal-Mart a visit today (11/22) and the shirt is still there, with a decent supply. I plan to call tomorrow and inquire again about why the shirt remains on the shelf. I apologize for not providing the location of this store, but I am withholding this information in order to retain my anonymity. Bellow are some more pictures of the shirt which I took today. I took one picture of the shirt with today's New York Times in an effort to prove it was taken today.

Wal-Mart is STILL Selling Nazi SS Skull T-Shirts

Update below photos Today (11/18) I visited my local Wal-Mart in search of some new jeans. While I was there I figured that I would check to see if Wal-Mart has yet to remove the Nazi SS Skull t-shirts, which they promised to remove from their shelves one week ago (11/11). Well, as I expected, the shirt was still proudly displayed. The apology letter from Wal-Mart stated: "...Wal-Mart is now removing the t-shirts from its stores. Obviously, with a company as big as Wal-Mart, that may take a day or two." I think were beyond the day or to time period at this point. Wal-Mart has no excuse to still be selling these shirts. My photos of the shirt below: Update: According to , my local Wal-Mart is not alone in still having these shirts out. Ben Popken reports that he has yet to heard of any store that has removed the shirts, however some of the commenters reported that stores near them have removed the t-shirts. This is truly appalling. It is bad enough that the shirt was put on the racks in the first place, but its a whole lot worse that Wal-Mart did not follow through on their promise to have the shirts removed. Wal-Mart takes a big step down in my book. Update 2: T-Shirt still on sale as of 11/22

Horribly Translated Instructions

Today I purchased a flexible keyboard for my computer. Although I have no complaints about the keyboard itself, the manufacturer needs to take more care in writing its instructions. "It cannot be contacted the sharp object" and my personal favorite: "...the keyboard has no poisonous and evil smell..." Below is an image of the instructions:
