lways a bully, always

Wal-Mart has bullied a parody of its Wal-Mart Foundation website into retreat. Daniel explains: "The goal was to make the parody look like it could be a real site from a company like Wal-Mart. However, the text was so ridiculous that anyone who read it would realize that it was absurd. If anyone believed it to be a real Wal-Mart website, that is only a testament to the degree of absurdity that exists within corporate America today." But Wal-Mart, not known far and wide for its gut-splitting humor, forced him to make alterations, unwittingly providing him with some extra publicity. Bravo.
