Wal-Mart: promoter of family values

I couldn't quite bring myself to put a picture of girls panties on my blog, you'll have to go here for the actual photo, but this is really quite something.  Wal-Mart is selling junior's (i.e., adolescents) underwear with the tag-line in front: “Who needs credit cards”  Um, what exactly is the subtext in that?  As Feministing put it: ” Who needs credit cards when you have a junior vagina?” (They've got the photo with the post).  In reading the post, I got a “hey, that's my Wal-Mart” moment” as it is actually the Wal-Mart in Cary, NC where the photo of the offending item was taken.  Hey, at least they don't carry music with racy lyrics.
