shiat, I buy all of my Tom Arnold literature there too.
2002-11-13 08:52:43 AM  
I actually laughed, the shame- the shame.

Roseanne Barr naked? I'd be turtling too.
2002-11-13 08:56:50 AM  
Who cares? Tom who? Roseanne who? Next, please.

Wal Mart sucks donkey ass.

That site has the most horrible colour scheme... it reminds me of Celine Dion and houses with white picket fences... not to mention the picture of the guy who wrote the article...hmm

If I ever write a book, and want it to be carried by Wal Mart, I will be sure to have a pic of my massive organ right on the cover. Then they will sell it.

I am not surprised - he looks like he has a small unit.
2002-11-13 09:12:33 AM  
Tom Arnold made me switch...
2002-11-13 09:18:11 AM  
rosanne in the sack could do that to a guy.
2002-11-13 09:21:39 AM  
But they sell guns. Go figure.
2002-11-13 09:22:37 AM  
well if people don't like the fact that they don't sell the book they can always stroll on over to the gun isle and pick one of those up to to shoot the powers that be.
2002-11-13 09:32:02 AM  
Is it that he has a small tool or that he keeps it under such a big shed?
2002-11-13 09:40:34 AM  
See America?
Wal-Mart doesn't want you to know the truth, about anything!
2002-11-13 09:40:45 AM  
Neener, Neener, Neener, Tom Arnold ain't got no Weener.

Sometimes when I'm feeling down I like to go to Walmart and people-watch, that always makes me feel like king of the farking world.
2002-11-13 10:19:11 AM  
Yes, yes, we realise that Wal-Mart is an amazingly downmarket store, with an knee-jerk reaction to anything which might even be construed as salacious, however what I want to know is: Is the bloody book any good?
2002-11-13 10:21:17 AM  
Best. Walmart. Decision. Ever.

I once read that Bruce Campbell was toying around with naming his book "I Met Tom Arnold and Didn't Kill Him" Woulda sold more copies than "If Chins Could Kill" I'd bet.

hail to the king, baby.
2002-11-13 11:07:25 AM  
Arnold told us from Chicago, where's he's hawking the book, "You'd think a big corporation like Wal-Mart would be more sensitive to a fellow's handicap."

shiat, that's comedy gold.

I hate Walmart. Well, no, I love Walmart(so delightfully trashy), I just hate that in the midwest it's practically the only place for dirtfarmers to get anything, and they use that power to control what people see and think. Now if AOL-TimeWarner-Disney can just acquire Walmart, we'll have no more need for a presidency!
2002-11-13 11:29:27 AM  
I love Tom Arnold. Shame on WAL-MART!

But you sure can get a lot of batteries for eight bucks..
2002-11-13 11:33:47 AM  
That's it. I've read enough. Throw your stones everyone.
2002-11-13 11:37:29 AM  
What a difference a day makes.

Um, funny how a couple of days ago, everyone was ranting and raving about how super-duper fabulous Wal-Mart clothes are how anyone who dared buy *gasp* name-brand clothes was a whore / dolt / insecure yuppie scum wanna-bee.

Wal-mart is hell on eath with more parking and a snack bar.

I think pagesix.com wins the headline award.
"Marketing Tool".

Get it? Tool? uh huh huh huh huh. You said tool. huh huh
2002-11-13 12:11:07 PM  
Back in the day, Walmart changed the back cover on Nirvana's In Utero so that track six, known as Rape Me, instead read Waif Me.
2002-11-13 12:34:10 PM  
F?ck WalMart

2002-11-13 12:55:43 PM  
I don't get it? why doesn't wal-mart want to sell a book that tells the true story of a has-been?
2002-11-13 01:15:28 PM  
2002-11-13 01:22:50 PM  
I guess you can judge a book by its' cover.
2002-11-13 01:23:24 PM  
and when you get to wal-mart, and realize they don't have the book you are looking for, you can always visit the gun, section, buy a gun, and kill yourself(and others) as long as you don't say anything about a penis while doing so.
2002-11-13 01:32:13 PM  
Every time I read about walmart "behind the scenes", it sounds more and more like it's slowly turning into Scientology 2.
2002-11-13 01:43:07 PM  
Wal-Mart sells guns and movies with boobies, cursing, and violence in them. They won't cell CDs, video games, or now books with the above. WTF?
2002-11-13 02:32:15 PM  
Would it be ok to sell the book if the cover said he had a giant c*ck?
2002-11-13 03:57:14 PM  
Speaking from experience, I think Arnold should sue for discrimination. Having a tiny penis should be protected under the ADA.

Prudish hypocrites, all of them. This culture is obsessed with sex, yet a major retailer can't bring themselves to carry a book with the WORD "penis" (not even a picture!) printed on the BACK cover (where only people WHO DECIDE TO PICK UP THE book can see it). To Wal-mart executives (since they are probably all male anyway): you are all a bunch of LIMP DICKS. nuff said.
2002-11-13 04:12:50 PM  
Least they could do is sell it at a "reduced" price.
2002-11-13 04:53:48 PM  
Walmart has a small penis!
2002-11-13 05:26:28 PM  
I guess this means they won't sell condoms or tampons, or bras either.
2002-11-13 08:03:33 PM  
Here's a picture I took of Tom Arnold in 2000. He's the guy in the gray shirt with the sweat stain.
[image from teamnad.com too old to be available]

He was talking to a friend of mine during a beer stop on a bicycle ride in July. You can't see his penis in this poor picture... and my

point is... well I have no point...I just have this picture and...

I've got nothing.

2002-11-13 08:11:00 PM  
Since when does Wal-Mart get customers who can actually read?
2002-11-13 08:58:34 PM  
"WalMart refuses to carry Tom Arnold's book, and CD's with swears in them. Need the room for guns."
2002-11-13 09:51:50 PM  
[walks into wal-mart]

"excuse me miss wheres your new Tom Arnold book"?

wonderful wal-mart empoloye:"sir, we refuse to stock that book due to it's content"

"ok i'll just take a carton of 9mm and some Buck shot"

my point being..........i have none
2002-11-14 01:12:07 AM  
I won't be carrying Tom Arnolds penis in Walmart either.
