Wal-Mart for Brits to offer gay marriage wares; Wal-Mart for Americans...well, they have 'The Birdcage' on DVD

by Jeremy Hooper

   According to reports, Wal-Mart's British offshoot, Asda, is gearing up for the UK's upcoming gay weddings by introducing same-sex-centric wedding cards and commitment rings.

Not to be outdone, we hear Asda's American parent, Wal-Mart, will be honoring the US's non-acceptance of queer nuptials by introducing "marriage is overrated, how about getting a cat instead?" cards and "commit to your work, commit to your family, commit to your church, commit to your community, commit yourself to an institution, just don't commit to the one you love" rings.

A company must know their market.
