Wal-Mart Shows its Commitment to “Family Values”

Wal-Mart Classes it Up!

The original story happened quite a while ago, but it was around Christmas and I just didn’t feel right posting about questionable teen undies at Christmas.  I don’t know, call me old-fashioned.  But hey, Christmas is over and now everything is fair game!

The above panties were found in the teen section of a Wal-Mart in South Carolina, as reported originally by Feministing.  Apparently, what the article did not report was that on the back, the panties stated, “When You Have Santa.”

Yeah, like that makes it so much better.

After some grass-roots internet outrage, Wal-Mart pulled the panties.  Fine, kudos to them.  Although really, how long are three dollar panties going to last anyway?  Most of the ones that sold are probably already falling apart.  Maybe they thought that the panties were fine because only the girl would know what her panties said.  At least, I certainly hope she would remain the only one.

So are these panties just harmless fun?  Does the saying on the back make it acceptable? 

And perhaps this is the biggest question, when did underwear become reading material?
