35 Photos That Prove Walmart Is One of the Strangest Places On the Planet

Walmart is great if you want to get paper towel, electronics, and cereal rather cheap, but the real riches come in the form of the people that you see there.

Long story short, there’s always a story, and half of the time you could swear you saw that story told on a recent episode of Maury Povich. That’s to say that the crowd is…interesting, and if you need any more proof, check out some of these shots from People of Walmart.

If there’s a whole website dedicated to this crowd, you know it has to be so bad it’s good.

All for one…

…and one leopard-print onesie for all!

Take notes for your next family shopping trip.

Dress to Impress

Going out to the club?

Be sure to get all fancied up and hit the local Walmart first, making sure to flash a smile (and only flash a smile) at the camera.


What? You’ve never seen a Walmart conga line?

This is how it’s done, folks.

No Thanks

This pair of shoes defeats the purposes of both sneakers and heels!! This is the most useless shoe. How? Why? Whyyyyyy?

Nana Slicer

Nana was not happy about the ‘Nana Slicer.

Sure, they probably meant “Banana,” but they couldn’t use the whole word for some reason.

The next one is hilarious…

What the Duck?

Where’s the bread?

Catching Some Zs

Okay, come on now.

I know that shopping can be exhausting, but at least camp out in the tent aisle or finagle your way into a hammock.


Speaking of naps…

Shopping is exhausting.

This girl gets it.

Say “Cheese”

“So, I want to get Glamour Shots taken, but I don’t want to go to the mall.”

“Dude! Go to Walmart and hulk out in the cheese section!”

Not a gouda idea.

The next one is…interesting…

Ride em, cowboy.

This post had the best Reddit headline I’ve ever read:

You’ve yee’d your last haw.

Gotta get a little cushion down there.

Wal-Mart has a lot of bread, right?

It can stand to lose a couple of loaves so this lad can avoid bending at the waist, right?

Land that I looooove.

I know it’s mean to laugh at someone falling over at Wal-Mart.

But that American flag overlay? Making it seem like this, this, is what our founding fathers fought for? That is very, very funny.

She is tall, and therefore, she is mighty.

These platforms are out of control, to be sure. But there’s one other detail I love about them.

they make her have to hunch over to reach her shopping cart. The platform heels were a monkey’s paw! She wished to be taller, only to regret what it does to her back!

That’s an actual dead coyote.

I cannot, for the life of me, wrap my head around this thinking. You kill a coyote in self-defense, or to save a roadrunner? Okay, I get that. But why bring it inside a Wal-Mart?

Worst case, you could always leave it in the car.

Lot going on here.

I know this guy looks insane, but there’s a story being told here by his many disparate fashion choices.

He’s patriotic (as evidenced by the hat), a detective (the trenchcoat), and also, super relaxed (the flip-flops). that must mean solving crimes in his home country of America is no big deal for him. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Sherlock Holmes.

Oh wait, he’s British. So why the hat? Maybe this is a bigger mystery than I thought. How far down does the rabbit hole go…?

Yes, that is a tail.

Whatever you do, do not pull it.


Surprisingly, they’re registered at Target.

A Wal-Mart wedding isn’t something I’d ever consider, but you can see why this might be a good idea to someone.

Weddings are expensive, and Wal-Mart always has low prices. Always.

His jaw. Is on. The floor.

It is very funny to me how shocked this guy is about how many bananas are being bought here.

Although he realized there was nothing unusual going on when he saw that the guy buying all these bananas was Donkey Kong.

“My pants are staying up come hell or high water.”

I know this man is in the Wal-Mart Subway (why are there always Subways or McDonald’s in Wal-Marts?), but there is no doubt in my mind he’s asking what aisle they keep the suspenders in.

No doubt. In my mind.

“Lemme take a break here bud.”

My man here is using Oscar Mayer pre-cooked microwave-ready bacon as a cushion.

Hopefully whatever doesn’t stick to his butt when he stands up gets a discount.

What’s she hiding in there?

No way does someone have hair that tall and not use it to hide a bottle of champagne, or a yoga mat.

Those threads are hot. And salty.

If you’ve ever been to college you’re both familiar with and forever indebted to ramen noodles.

But I cannot, for the life of me, imagine having such brand loyalty that I’d buy sweatpants about them.

“Is that a long-sleeve shirt sir, or… oh. Well. Hmm.”

Most of the time, the security guard will stop anyone who enters Wal-Mart who is violating the “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service” rule.

But this guy does look like he might be wearing a shirt, so I could see whatever guard was working the day this guy came in taking the path of least resistance.

The greatest of all time.

No, that’s not Tom Brady in that pouch.

It’s an actual goat.

Anarchy! Destruction! Yuletide greetings!

So sick that Santa is opening for The Misfits this summer at the Warped Tour.

Pwning noobs in the Wal-Mart is still pwning noobs.

Imagine you’re a Call of Duty player getting just destroyed — killed over and over again — by the same guy.

And then you find out that guy’s sitting in a shopping cart at a Wal-Mart. Does that make it hurt more or less?

Let the cockfight begin!

I’ve got my money on the store manager!
