Yes, that’s right, you can buy “Destroy Capitalism” on perhaps one of the world’s biggest celebrators of that economic system. This, of course, lives up tothe irony that the original piece displayed. However, “snytekz” pointed out that Walmart states they “do not sponsor, recommend or endorse any third party product or service, or any customer ideas or advice."

Either way, this is far too meta. We’re going to take a walk around the block.
