So I sat here for about 20 minutes trying to decide if I could get away with calling this post “Walmart vs Bitches” or “Walmart vs Hoes,” but I feel like most people wouldn’t appreciate the humor. So instead I used The Girls Next Door to represent “Women.”
All kidding aside, here’s the background on this post. Recently the Supreme Court heard a discrimination suit brought against Walmart, which could potentially turn into the largest class action suit in history. I haven’t been able to get much information on the suit besides “the women are paid less.” Which unfortunately isn’t an issue exclusive to Walmart. In 2010 women were still only earning 77 cents for every dollar that a man makes. That’s across the entire united States. The better lawsuit would probably be “Women vs Society,” as it almost seems unfair/disingenuous to single out one corporation. Maybe this will serve to start some actual change on the topic though, or at least getting a dialog going on the issue.
I also thought about making a joke about paying women 23 cents an hour to make me sandwiches, but thought that would be horribly offensive. So since I never said that I’ll just end this with “I hope things change.”

Today’s Mediocre Fight could have a few meanings to it. One – guys who play videogames can’t get girlfriends. While this may be true for the stereotypical gamer hanging out in his mom’s basement, pack of Surge cooling in his fridge while his Totino’s Pizza Rolls heat up in the microwave; today’s gamer can essentially be indistinguishable from normal socially adequate people.
No, today’s fight harkens to a much greater struggle (to be honest, I have no idea of harkens is grammatically acceptable there, but I’m sure one of my nerd-ass friends will correct me if necessary) – who gets my love and attention? Sometimes a guy just needs a break, and videogames are much less apt to need coddling after a bad day (unless you bought that new game Coddle Sim 2011). So yeah, maybe I’ve had a long day and when I say “Sorry babe, I gotta work late tonight” I actually mean “Sorry Babe, I gotta go immolate a dwarf.” For those select few who are actually dating a girl who enjoys videogames as much as you do – never let her go. Chain her in your basement if you have to. Apparently this is also another in a long series of posts entitled “How To Endear Yourself to Women-folk.”
Two side notes: 1) yes, this is almost exactly what my last girlfriend looked like, and B) I could really go for some Surge and pizza rolls right now.
