Costco actually pays workers a living wage and provides benefits unlike that bunch of assholes from Arkansas and their warehouse club. I get my medicines mail order from them (cheapest around) and they have non-cruelty veal. Their prepared meatloaf and mashed potatoes in the deli section is a standby of mine and I always grab their $1.50 giant hot dog and soda. So if you creation myth fans bitch about the misplacement of a book you already have a dozen copies of I hope I'm in the store to pour a half gallon of mustard on your heads.

It's publicly-traded, but they do pay regular employees an actual wage. (I believe the ladies peddling samples are, however, part-timers).

Science textbook... Prequel to US history... Study guide for understanding the US Constitution (just the second half of the book, though)... Textbook for Gender Studies...

This is so wrong.

As well all know, it belongs in the <i>Science</i> section.

Yes - I asked right away if they wanted information about Haitian Voodoo, but they were hoping for something different. I got several blank looks.

You may laugh, but if Costco had labeled MLP:FiM as "fiction," I suspect you'd be singing a different tune. <a href="http:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch\?v=4By8YHOnILo" target="_blank">Probably this one</a>.

Or MP3s through earjacks.

At least the Southern Baptists stayed true to the biblical guidance on slavery.

[saw "Twelve Years a Slave" last night and it's hard to get it out of the ol' noggin]
