Listen, that sounds really convenient at times but I don't really think I need one that's dedicated to hovering up kids.  Maybe if I ran a day care or one of those culty-quiver-full families maybe.

/would sure make it easier to gather then up to sell to the laboratories for medical experiments

I prefer shopping at S-Mart.

A vacuum cleaner specially made to handle children? Shut up and take my money! My current vac keeps getting clogged by them.

The problem it might have is all these people that call their pets their "fur babies". If it hoovers them up too, the SPCA probably would like a word.

K-mart used to have some great deals on kids.

I was driving in the Florida Keys last year and passed one. It was like driving through Alaska and spotting the Yeti (the big hairy thing, not a cooler).

This is rather timely with the imminent overturning of Roe v Wade.

Yeah, this is a toy with a little bit of suction power and you can get it on AMZ. Casdon makes it under license with Dyson.

I'll be damned, they finally shut down the K-Mart in Tehachapi.  I thought for sure it was set to outlast civilization.

K-Mart is a thing in Australia too, on par with Target if not nicer.

I was in a Kmart just last year. Needed some cheap ass reading glasses and they had some. I think it was near Webster MA.
 
2020-09-23 3:29:35 PM  
Oh...wait, just saw this is New Zealand. It's KiwiMart, right?

Our local Kmart used to sell three ham sandwiches - deli ham, American cheese, and lettuce on a dry hamburger bun - for $3.99 with all the free mayo and mustard packets you wanted. Those sunsabiatches saved my ass in college when I was living check-to-check (see also: spending most my money at the bar).

I can't wait to find out what kind of fetishes this one developed...

That's have to be a pretty powerful vacuum to pick up a U.S. sized kid.

I wonder if there is some kind of agenda going on by putting a boy on the box instead of a girl.

Chuck87: I wonder if there is some kind of agenda going on by putting a boy on the box instead of a girl.


Yes. the agenda is: We don't want to get biatched out by some offended twunt for putting a female spawn on the box. Better make it a boy.

Kmart is like Walmart, but without the class.  So perfect for Down Under.

We had a fine Kmart here for many years. I bought some orange ping-pong balls there one time for the cat to play with.

I'll bet a dollar that the K-Mart on Guam is still in business. It's the one-stop shop for a good portion of the Pacific. They probably make enough from coolers alone to stay afloat (so to speak).

/For context... coolers are frequently used for luggage in the Pacific. Cheap and sturdy.

Despite the similar name, Australian Kmart is completely unrelated to the Kmart stores in the USA. Same goes for Australian Target.

A vacuum that only sucks up kids would be worth going to New Zealand for.

What'll really toss your salad is that Target Australia is not only not related to Target US but it is an older company that registered an almost identical trademark first.

And yet we still don't have a vacuum designed to not give you back pain I don't get it it's like we think pain is something Noble to suffer instead of just designing things that don't cause pain why is that so complicated

I know for a fact there is a K Mart in South Lake Tahoe, CA. I was there last week and was surprised to see it.

What's important to take away is that we are brainwashing our children and some people are congratulating themselves.

I've lived in the US and in Australia. The Kmarts and Targets in Australia are nice, clean, well-maintained, profitable. The ones in the US seem to be in a death spiral.

The Australian Kmart is expanding to the US by buying old Target stores and rebranding them under a new name - Anko:

Kmart has gobbled up a lot of the, ahem, Target market, and the parent company is now reworking more and more Target stores under the Kmart banner.
