    If you're buying things you really don't NEED on sale, are you really saving?

    OK folks: I have actually been IN a chinese walmart (in Chenzhou, Hunan province when we adopted our daughter). First of all, the fact that someone actually GOT these pics suprises the heck out of me! We got our cameras out and security and police came running towards us, if we hadn't put them away they were going to take our cameras from us!
    It was crazy, crowded, HUGE, several stories, and wierd, weird, weird!!!
    None of these pics shocked me, they actually took me back. Here's the weirdest thing ever though:
    We were at the meat counter "oogling" at all the weird stuff (see above pics) lol. We saw someone order a huge fish of some sort. The meat mongrel behind the counter grabbed the fish to kill it, but when he got it on the table, it flopped around and landed on the floor. This meat mongrel guy then proceeded to KICK this fish several times to kill it!!!! But wait..... the story gets better He then leaned down, grabbed it off the floor, wrapped it in paper and handed it over the counter to the guy.. NO JOKE!!!

    I guess the only difference is that our food is nicely wrapped. But before it is wrapped what does it look like?
