Cognitive Dissonance

I was accompanying a friend of mine in Wal*Mart this morning, and happened on something that left me wondering if there's any hope for the human race...

On a table, W*M had a nice display of Easter Baskets - but these baskets were all 'themed': there were some that were oriented toward Spiderman, NASCAR, Batman, cartoon characters, and so on. These all struck me as being a little 'off subject' for Easter, but I'm willing to let it go.

But the one that absolutely, positively threw me was the one that included a variety of "army men" and an assortment of military objects - a HMMV, missile(s), guns, and so forth.

In a farookin' Easter basket.
