Groovy Deals

We don’t usually do commercial endorsements on Dog Blog, but this news is just so fantastic that I have to share it with all of prairie dog’s loyal contributors and readers.

I was at the Grassland’s Wal_Mart today, and they have a huge sale on Depends and other adult undergarments. While I was there, I renewed my Viagra prescription, picked up a case of prunes and a VHS Box Set of The Munsters,  and even scored a spiffy new walker (pictured below).

It has a basket for putting your dry goods and other purchases in, along with a seat, so if you’re out galivanting around and you get tired you can stop and sit for a spell. As the kids say, how AWESOME is that!

So make sure to get over to Wal_Mart this weekend and stock up.

  1. Gregory, you find it hilarious watching what old people have to buy as their bodies deteriorate and they attempt to have a sense of dignity and self-reliance and enjoyment. I bet you’re looking forward to winter to see an old person fall on an icy sidewalk because she didn’t buy a metal prong for the end of her cane at WalMart.

  2. Satire is a lost art I guess:

    Why cant you closed minded Regina old fashioned people give something new a chance. Prairie Dog is for old people.

  3. You’re right, Gregory, satire is indeed a lost art. Satire can be a pointed, funny social commentary. Your post is just a list of consumer items that older people buy, and in a mocking mean tone. That’s not satire.

    (I love your late referencing it to some reader’s comment in some other unrelated post.)

  4. Older Than You: Perhaps it’s unclear from his post but Greg has abundant personal experience caring for elderly relatives. He’s good people, that Greg. Like Bette Davis said, “old age is no place for sissies. Greg would probably add, you have to laugh or you’ll cry.

  5. As I often see Greg pushing an elderly family member in a wheelchair near her care facility, I can certainly vouch for Stephen’s comments. Heel up, buttercups.

  6. Barb Saylor doesn’t agree with #4. I’m not one of the message board cool kids.

  7. Why attempt to pick a fight with me, Talbot, when I didn’t pick one with you? Are you truly that bored?

  8. Writers – sometimes they tell us about where they have been, and other times – sometimes – they tell us about where they think they (we) are going. If you’ve already been there, relax and enjoy it for what it is…

    I’ll go shopping with you anytime, Greg.
