Worst Mother’s Day promotion EVER


Sometimes employees change endcaps and displays without really thinking about the signage. Usually it’s just annoying or an indicator of the stores inability to manage itself. Other times it results in great savings if it’s an old price sign that hasn’t been removed. But this time — this time it’s just a hilarious train wreck for all.

Unless of course it’s not a mistake, in which case I have to ask; did Wal-Mart just call my mom a slut?

While a mother’s day post at the end of July might seem a tad odd, today is in fact my mommy’s birthday and I felt the need to defend her honour. Happy birthday mom!

    I think it says more about what you think about your siblings… “please mom, whatever you do, no more”!

    Since when does using condoms equate to being a slut?

    First thing that came to mind was the SNL short by the Lonely Island, “Mother Lover” – http://www.snotr.com/video/2685

    I am laughing hysterically… like the children are in this video.

    (Ironically, because the father in the following video did not use the “mother’s day gift”, they were blessed with 4 adorable sweethearts laughing….) enjoy!

  13. Bambinoitaliano says:

    I think the employees just sick of screaming, crying kids in the stores

    Ok…that is AMAZING! It reminds me of when I was working at Wendy’s and part of our sign fell down outside…so instead of saying “Now hiring all SHIFTS” it said “Now hiring all SH*TS”

  16. Andrew says:

    Yeesh you’re all a bunch of prudes

  17. Lisa Hallman says:

    What better mothers day gift then to remind mom, not to make the same mistake again… LOL…

  18. vibrantflame says:

    LOL too funny! Could you imagine your child buying that for you as a Mother’s Day gift? Haha!

    Moms & Dads: Be careful what you wish for… This could be a blessing.

  22. carlycanadian says:

    LOL…too funny!

    “Yeesh you’re all a bunch of prudes”

    I think you missed the joke XD

  24. Leslie says:

    Wow, Oedipus complex much?

  25. mhk says:

    Gross! but funny too – I wonder where Walmart’s management is – I mean a clerk could have set up the display (hoping to get a few laughs maybe?) but some big-wig should have caught it….

    No wonder they say that Canada’s population is not increasing at the same pace as that of the rest of the world! 😉

  26. monkeymommy says:

    We just saw a similar signage posted online…back to school savings sign right above a display for magnum condoms

  27. Dee09 says:

    Thanks for the chuckle!

  28. Expatriot says:

    It WAS probably a Mom who put the sign there. No doubt she’s got plenty of the little demons running around driving her crazy at home. It’s subliminal messaging for customers.

  29. Jonny come latley says:

    Well it could be worse. They could have had a sale on KY Jelly Lube. Maybe that is why that yellow dot has a smile on all the time.

  30. Derek says:

    That is some funny stuff 🙂

  31. supermum says:

    Maybe not the best message, but a very funny condom ad anyways!!


  32. Anna says:

    This is really funny. Similar thing happened to me in Walmart too. They put some lubricant for woman around the shampoo area, as I was walking I turn to my husband and said, I need this – his response was, let see if this lubricant will do the job. Thanks for the post. Anna 🙂

    How come my comment is still in moderation?

  34. relax says:

    RELAX. Besides, who said moms can’t have or enjoy sex? What an insult to moms and women everywhere. Just because you buy condoms doesn’t make you a slut.

  35. Natasha says:

    I like it! Why not let mum get a little sumthin sumthin for herself for a change. Now if they only had some cute mens undies beside it. Just like they do for women’s undies on fathers day. TODAY IS ALLLLLLL ABOUT US GUYS.
