Sorry to burst your WalCreature bubble but that head gear is part of a religious rite and she is likely required to wear it for a couple of weeks.

“Giiiirrrrrlll I just got my hair did!”
Mary, Mary, quite contrary how does your garden grow? With silver bells, & cockle shells, & purple roses all over….
awww leave her alone, shes just a little old lady trying to look pretty.
Not crazy, obviously a culture/religious thing.. Dig a little deaper next time.
Within a week, Violet knew she made a mistake when she rubbed in MiracleGro thinking it make her hair grow faster
Better remove this right away as you are making fun of somebody’s culture!! remember the fat Indian woman?
Get a grip people and realize which site you are on!
if she has the right to wear it, we have the right to laugh at. just saying.
“I knew I used too much of that lilac scented conditioner ! “
Quit your crying… whether it is culture or not the hat is a scream!! If everyone can make fun of American Culture we can poke fun at others…Remember it is open trade…now open tease! Political correctness has NO PLACE in POW!!! Get over it and move on….
if you can’t deal with jokes being made over cultural/religious practices you may want to avoid comedy sites. all of the other wierdos on here think what they’re wearing/doing is fine. who are we to make fun of their veiws. average people. thats who.
i bought the blue flower scent shampoo too!
this is actualy a culture thing…its def not funny….we dont make fun of ppl for being christian or catholic or luthern….what gives anyone the right 2 make fun of any other religion????shame on you!!!!!!
Culture/religious things are often crazy. And who says you can’t make fun of religion? Why does religion get a pass? “I’m a person of faith”. Big deal. That doesn’t make you better than anyone else or exempt from ridicule.
uhhhh…. christianity is made fun of incessantly. what planet have u been living on?
Oh Yay!!! A religious/cultural debate from ignorant PoWM followers. Get back to playing POGO and lighten up.
it is a shame and discusting ppl judge and make fun of someone based on there religious rights just because it is diffrent doesnt give anyone the right 2 judge or make fun of them!!!no god in any religion gives us the say its ok 2 make fun of other religions….im not a religious person but i frown upon ppl who make fun of those who are religious and are of dif religion…..go ahead and poke fun at your own religion but dont poke fun at someoneelse for there diffrences in how they go about there religion!!!!
SO ITS STILL FUNNY
Blow it out your ass — this site is to poke fun. NOTHING is exempt
It doubles as a hanging plant for when she gets home
What religion makes you wear flowers on top of your head? I wanna join! Sounds fun!
So, enlighten the folks at home as to what religion this is associated with…
She looks like a cross between Mother Teresa and Mother Nature!
I’m not making fun of anyone’s religious practice by all means, but I would like to know what is the purpose? I would never pass judgment for I do not want to be judged. Just curious and want to understand.
That’s my grandmama! HA!
Everything is coming up roses!
TT in OV
im glad she doesn’t have mistletoe on her hat. IM NOT KISSING HER!
something just went limp……
I dont understand why people get so offended by making fun of this, this site makes fun of people of all sizes, race & religion. If you cant handle the jokes then don’t look at the pictures!!!!
Agreed. POWM should have never deleted the pic of the fat indian lady. Who says this is a religious rite? I’ve never heard of a religious rite where ladies wear roses on their head and make a pilgrimage to Wal-Mart for incense. Political Correctness SUCKS. Especially on THIS site.
Heck… it looks like she’s sitting near the pedicure area. Maybe that’s Wal-Marts way of providing redneck aromatherapy… you know… pay some old lady money to wear flowers on their head so the room smells nice, just like they pay old dudes to stand at the front door and tell you hello.
MY comment was sarcasm folks,
Oh come on people….just because it’s part of a religious rite or festivity DOESN’T mean it makes it any less crazy……in fact… in many peoples’ opinions it just might make it MORE crazy!!!!
Lets just say for the sake of argument that this a cultural religious “thing”. If that were the case then I think this is better celebrated in the privacy of your own home. Take it to Walmart and a crazy purple upside-down roses on a hat becomes fair game.
its nelson mandella in disguise
Well, what of religion is it?!?! :/
It’s a new 1-800-Florist marketing campaign…..
I’d hate to see the rose “bush”
It looks like the boquet at a wedding landed on her head and no one told her.
She must be the maid I heard about that disappeared from the “WHITE” house. The reason for the flowers on her head – she must have escaped through the flower garden.
To Be Me
In days gone bye- each color of a rose meant something. Red, I love you, white purity, ect. Does anyone know what purple means?
Hope it was only a wrist
At Easter time ladies were hats with flowers to church. Maybe it’s Easter there.
I’m not buying it’s a religious rite…I think she stopped at a yard sale, and thought she was buying a hat, but it’s really a lampshade!
Fly on the Wall
@To Be Me: Purple means poor circulation, the pains of getting old.
Why does the song ‘Paper Roses’ come to mind??
either way it could complicate the buddy system….
….how long is it until Lent??
**sings** You don’t bring me flowers…anymore
how did you know my name is harvey goldberg weinstein?
So this is what brides in Afghanistan wear?
I recognized the unique style of circumcision
(tips hat goes nite-nite)

OK – the melting pot this country has become has officially jumped the shark.
Dynomoose, what religious rite? I just see a lady having fun with her head wrap.
she doesnt look too happy about it
just how culturally/religiously far back would the custom of wearing polyester and plastic roses, made in china, go?
Big Sweaty (Biker)
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
I really miss my granny……..love those around you, …life is to short….I love these old ladies!! …See even bikers have a heart……
I think a lot of people need to learn how to spell religion before they can accurately defend it. Also… this is people of walmart… why dont you go somewhere else, were hardly sensitive here.
She looks like Real Houswives of Atlanta Phaedra at her Baby Shower!
Hmm, somebody needs to water this lady. her roses are wilting and her skin is drying out….
~giggle~ But I’d sure love to know the details behind this “religious rite” folks are stating!
Reminds me of a chocolate wedding cake I once saw….
She bought it on Etsy

Sorry to burst everyones PC bubble, but this isn’t some “religious rite”. This is the south and the absurdness of old black lady’s curch hats knows no limits. No one ever seen a Tyler Perry movie?
Hey I’ve heard the saying “It’s a Jersey Thing” but this must me a religious thing. I wonder what religious sect she belongs too. Hey I don’t begrudge anyone from worshiping but I would draw the line at hats made of flowers. How about a nice cross or something else.
This whole thread is like people trying to out PC each other. I notice that no one has come up with what “religious rite” this is or what religion it belongs to. You will notice this picture is from georgia, and that means the south. They sillyness of old black lady’s church hat knows no limits.

For those inquiring about the religion in practice here, I believe that it is one of the Voudun religions.
@Star “What gives anyone the right 2 [sic] make fun of any other religion”
The first amendment gives us that right, Star. It also protects your right to print stupid shit like “ppl” for people and “2″ for to.
at least she find a way to not stink with out her deoderint
@Star…you are right…we should switch over to making fun of people that can’t spell….
I took some vitamins and pissed on my chia-nun.
