That doesn’t appear to be an official Walmart-sanctioned sign.
Shit’s all got parallel-universey at that location.
I’m from Boston and here we dont have a problem with making signs spelling things the way locals say them. (There’s a “Connah Store” and lots of “Chowda” resaurants). But in this Wal-Mart sign, they could at LEAST get the apostrophe right.
Ohhhhh how cutesy- tryin’ to be all appealin’ to the rednecks and stuff. Ain’t that cunnin’!
It is HUNTIN” thank you very much..
i wish my Walmart could have that in it
The only thing wrong with the sign is that Wal-Mart’s selection of “huntin’ stuff” is pretty limited. Most of the time they don’t even carry appropriate ammo…
If you want to make an apostrophe you have to let go of the SHIFT key, dipshit!
You missed the fact that they used an inch mark (“) instead of an apostrophe (’).
ummm…who’s the grammar expert? Do they have a Grammar Headquarters in this location or did this sign some from the Corporate Headquaters? Since when do you put a quotation mark (1/2) when shortening a word. I thought you used an apostrophe(??) Maybe someone in the Grammar Headquarters can help me with this problem!
That’s not an apostrophe either.
The contraction for “you all” should be y’all, not ya’ll. Think about it…the apostrophe in y’all is standing in place of the O and the U. What would the apostrophe in ya’ll replace?
I really like the use of a quote mark rather than an apostrophe!
i love that they incorrectly put a ” instead of a ‘ – dorks.
Strength and Fitness Blog
I ran across this blog a few days ago. I live in Asia but I’m from the USA–makes me re-think my rush to visit wal-mart every time I go home.
Ah’m gonna head down there in mah pick-em-up truck right now! YEE HAAW!!! Maybe if Ah’m lucky, maw’ll fix me up some possum stew for supper t’nite….YEE HAW!
I guess if you can’t find a G then a quotation mark will do…..as opposed to an apostrophe.
Too bad the Sporting Goods sign didnt read… “Sportin’ Goods”
Lamest pic yet. No people, just a dumb sign that doesn’t even approach being funny.
Not just huntin’, it’s huntin”
I've got a score to settle
Thanks for the heads-up. Now I know where to buy some ammo. You’ll know what for. Just watch the breaking news tomorrow.
zoom the zook
are you sure these people aren’t from saint cloud florida?
It’s hilarious because they were obviously trying to go for “HUNTIN’” but failed so gloriously.
It’s called spell check people, spell check – it’s your friend!
I wonder if they have a bloomers” section for my panties?
Maybe that’s where John Kerry went to get one dem dere Huntin Licenses during his campaign.
this is SAD. It just HAD to be in the state I live in didn’t it…
What’s with the long black socks?
This isn’t funny…
I am SO NOT surprised this WalMart is in NC…now the question is where exactly..maybe Clayton? Kinston? Hmmm.
He That Shall Not Be Mentioned
This is obviously an issue of artistic expression, people! I believe the author was working to really emphasize the his love for the vernacular used in his particular region. An homage, if you will, to his hometown dialect.
God bless you, Wal-Mart, for being a pioneer on the cusp of a new expressive liguistics movement…and they say the public school system is failing us!

Looks like Cletus finally got to put his “mad design skills” he listed on the job application to use.
Is that a double apostrophe?
or is it a close quote?
or is it an inches sign?
or is it…
oh never mind.
This MIGHT have been funny if you’d spelled y’all right.
Get it right next time.
It’s spelled y’all. Like You All. IF we’re going to make fun of southern colloquialisms, let’s spell them right, folks.
Of all the humorous pics on this site, this is by far the weakest. Not even remotely funny.
Sorry, hunters, but this IS the way you sound to the majority of the world.
This is from the Sanford NC store.
The two apostrophes are a great touch, pretty sure all you need is one.
This is by far the funniest!!! Oh, hicks…got no choice but to love ‘em.
September 11th, 2009
fucking heaven for every redneck out there
God some of you people are lame. Spell correction on y’all? Someone called it a contraction of you all. while you can make a case for this, its ridiculous to “spell check” a word that isn’t even a word. Not yet anyway.
Anyway, I see the humor in this. 1, dropping the G in HUNTING and 2, using a quotation mark instead of an apostrophe on a word thats not recognized as a word. It’s the phonetic display of the U.S. Southern dialect which evokes images of dirty, stupid people.
And makes me LAUGH! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!
Get your stereotypes right….. People who go huntin’ don’t say “den” or “da”……
I really just want to know what was $12.97 in THAT department.
haha oh my gosh… things like these almost make me ashamed to work at walmart.. btw i do work there

“Sorry, hunters, but this IS the way you sound to the majority of the world”
And we’re dang proud of it!
I thought this was ‘peopleofwalmart.com’ not ‘signsofwalmart.com’
lame pic. take it off.
suddenly, I am very proud to have been to this wal-mart.

BTW… Everyone is missing the humor. Huntin is ended with double marks (“). It should end with a single mark (‘) to denote that part of the word is being omitted. It’s not funny that they choose to use a colloquialism to target their demographic. It’s hilarious that they can’t even do that right. I’m guessing that’s not an officially sanctioned Walmart sign. Or maybe it is!

I almost got a picture of someone who would go perfect with this. Decked out in full hunting camo- and I don’t think early september is any hunting season in CO. Except I didn’t have my camera and It would be too obvious to take a cell phone pictures-especially since mine takes such a long time to focus.
I want to start with a comment to “huntin’ guy”.. ur a moron.. With that said, I’d like to also say that nothing is wrong with taking away the g in a word that usually ends with “ing”. Its a marketing trick that relates the product with the consumers(Many, many, MANY people, especially south of the mason dixon line, are, well… RETARDED.. and can relate with dumb things.. if i were wrong than this picture would not be here.. and this picture is in fact an example within an example of why and how this is true) but when one abbreviates a word, an apostrophe should be used to recede the word…. NOT A QUOTATION!!!
September 15th, 2009
Oh an on another note.. its funny how this joke went right over the author’s head.. The author of the caption obviously didn’t understand that this picture was funny because they put a quotation instead of an apostrophe.. Or else he wouldn’t have been left with nothing funny to say besides a play on the way southerners speak.. On this website, this is not the first example of the author of the caption being less intelligent than the subject in the picture.. If your going to make fun of retards, it helps your case if your not one yourself.. =P
Ok that sign is stupid but the person who tagged this picture has no idea how to write colloquial speech from NC…or I suspect anywhere in the South. So the sign was printed wrong, big deal.

Someone else noted this, but I think it deserves mention again. First, the whole fact that they meant to write “Huntin’ <–see the apostrophe?", when "Hunting" would have easily substituted without confusion (or would it?). Secondly, the whole fact that the person wasted his time to print out a sign, but still doesn't know how to use either the caps lock or the shift key to his advantage is amusing. Those of you who don't get why it's funny probably would have made such a sign yourselves.
Why, I LOVES to keel stuff!
Well Hung Hippie
In the Walmart at Columbine CO, it’s Killin” Headquarters (yes I remembered to use the quotation mark instead of an apostrophe).
September 19th, 2009
Maybe everyone is confused? Sign like that tells me that maybe this is the section where you can hunt for head quarters or maybe its a question asking if someone is there to hunt head quarters……..especially when everything else seems to be so weird in all these northern state wal marts. Down south, our Wal Mart hunting supplies are in the athletic department.
September 23rd, 2009
i bet this sign is at my local Walmart in my town(Roxboro,NC)because these people here are the “huntin” kind LOL
What’s sad is that I was talking in a thick country accent (in my head) as I read the caption for this pic. Even worse, my accent is already country enough, why do I need to make it thicker in my thoughts?
September 24th, 2009
Ugh. See, I was born and raised (and still live) in western NC, and stuff like that just makes me want to cry. I’d like to say once and for all that not all North Carolinians are idiots like whoever created that sign.
See now, this makes me embarrassed to have been born in Western NC, so CAIT, I know how you feel….
September 27th, 2009
This is store #1774 in Sanford, NC; its along NC87.
September 28th, 2009
It’s ” ‘ “, not ” ” “, stupids.

October 2nd, 2009
what the hell is wrong with hunting?
October 7th, 2009
I’m from wyoming and i really don’t see whats wrong with this sign.. who doesn’t like huntin and beer and football?
October 8th, 2009
I’m from Wyoming and i really don’t see whats wrong with this sign… and nobody “keels” stuff. We’re not ignorant. And we really don’t talk much different. And whats wrong with camo and nascar? I think its better the redneck way. But thats just my opinion.
Why am I not surprised this was spotted in a NC Wal-Mart? Please believe me when I say not all of us that live in NC are NASCAR watchin’ camo wearin’ deer killin’ beer drinkin’ rednecks!
October 12th, 2009
dam talk bout shitfart lmao
I don’t think that there is anything wrong with this sign. I am from Georgia and down here we are country to the core and we like things like huntin, fishin, racin, muddin and good cold beer!!!!!!
October 14th, 2009
Only in nc…
October 18th, 2009
GREAT site. But ya might wanna learn to spell b4 u make fun of everyone else. Spell check dude.
October 20th, 2009
And they can’t even get the apostrophe right.
November 7th, 2009
Nice site but yeah everyone can make a spelling mistake.
November 11th, 2009
Nice but everyone makes spelling mistakes
I can’t believe how condescending and STUPID some of you are! OK, it’s a little comical that the sign was printed with the wrong punctuation….that’s it!! No need to run off into a tangent about Southern accents or lingo! You f**kin’ Yankees wanna make fun of the “rednecks?” I was born and raised in Western NC…a “redneck” is just a “good ol’ boy” (or girl) who knows that life is about so much more than money and social status. WE like to do things here that actually make us happy– and we don’t give a flyin’ SHIT about what Y’ALL think! If you have a problem with us, or with the way we talk, then go back to where ya came from asshole!!

i agree with angie. all you damn yankees need to go back north and leave us red necks alone!! i am a red neck (born and raised in nc) and damn proud of it. as for grammer the author aint any better

“i agree with angie. all you damn yankees need to go back north and leave us red necks alone!! i am a red neck (born and raised in nc) and damn proud of it. as for grammer the author aint any better”
First of all, we won the war; we’ll go wherever we want.
Secondly, you misspelled grammar.
Third, there should be an apostrophe in that made-up word “ain’t”
Fourth, the author didn’t mess up the grammar in the caption for that idiotic sign.
But nice try, bless your heart. (you’re southern so you know what that *really* means, right?)
May 7th, 2011
Oh, and “damn proud” should actually be “damned proud” but that’s okay. Lots of people make that mistake, north and south of the Mason Dixon line.
My name is maddie im 13 and I live in eastern north Carolina I’ve read all of your comments and I don’t under stand why this big controversy is going on over a sign. Don’t say “only in north Carolina” or “wow, thease red neck hicks can’t even spell” honestly y’all act like y’all are so above us. Were all just people and we all have different accents and I embrace where I’m from. I don’t hunt I don’t watch NASCAR but I’m proud to be where I’m from just like y’all. And yea I’m using spell check.
P.S please feel free to pick out every mistake I’ve made reginaphalange
June 27th, 2011
Of course “y’all” is spelled with the apostrophe between the “y” and the “a”. It replacs the “ou”.
July 30th, 2011
Forgot to run that sign through spell-check.
August 24th, 2011
Mike is right – “Please believe me when I say not all of us that live in NC are NASCAR watchin’ camo wearin’ deer killin’ beer drinkin’ rednecks!”
I have no camo, hate beer, let others kill the deer, and only watch NASCAR because my daughter does.
So y’all know, the computer where those signs are made doesn’t have spell check. That sign’s not even close to the worst I’ve seen, and not just in NC.
January 6th, 2012
@Bojangles: I’m pretty sure I’ve seen similar in Sanford LOL I wouldn’t be surprised if it was!
