Kmart in the Philippines

Jul 8 | By David_Roxas | Views: 387 | Comments: 12

Attention Kmart shoppers!


Who knew once bankrupt and continually-struggling-to-make-a-profit  department store Kmart opened a branch in the Philippines!?


Blue light specials right here in the Philippines!





And they even have a delivery tricycle.





Time to get shopping!

David: I love how they used the word 'to', implying that they have multiple phone lines. When in fact they just have two, ie., x14 and x15.

I do know the Local History, but I really cannot get my head around why anyone would wish to call a Malate Coffee Shop ‘KKK?’ – Can you have a coffee while watching a ‘Cross Burning?’ Then there is a Restaurant Chain called ‘Shabu Shabu!’ – Do they serve meals in ‘1 Gram Sachets?’ Do you have to arrive with a Passenger on a Motorcycle carrying the obligatory 0.38 Calibre Handgun?

The same applies to the Political Organisation ‘MILF!’ Just doing a ‘Google Search’ does not instantly reveal the ‘Mindanao Islamic Liberation Front!’ – It reveals something much better! (The acronym being related to ‘Mothers I’d Like to Fuck!’) The same applies to ‘STI’ – Would that be the ‘Santo Tomas Institute?’ – Or a ‘Sexually Transmitted Infection?’

I posted a picture a while back of the ‘Meat & Balls Sari Sari Store!’ – But the best recently has been ‘BSE – Cabbage,’ and even ‘BSE – Beef!’ - ‘BSE’ is the ‘Own Brand’ of Budgetlane Supermarket Enterprises! – Not to be confused with ‘Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy’ otherwise known as ‘Mad Cow Disease!’

Painful Acronyms are one thing, but there are others with ‘Unfortunate Names!’ I once employed a Structural Engineer called ‘Perfecto Jocalan’ (Tagalog: Perfect Wank!) Yesterday, I was waiting in a queue at the hospital – After waiting some considerable time, my name was called to see the doctor. His name was Doctor Erik Santos – So, I said to the Nurse “Is this the Moment? Is this the Time?” - Erik Santos is a Filipino Singer! – Classic ‘Facepalm Moment!’

Finally, when leaving the Hospital, I heard another patient’s name being called! – ‘Dante Pajero!’ – In Spanish, ‘Pajero’ means ‘Wanker!’ – One reason why Mitsubishi rebranded the Pajero 4WD as a ‘Shogun’ in Europe. However, Mitsubishi forgot the Spanish Ancestry of The Philippines! – Either that or it was a fiendish and cunning ‘Japanese Joke!’ – Letting Filipino Wankers, ride around in a car with ‘WANKER’ emblazoned on the Spare Wheel Cover!

LOL! The fact the Google is heavily oriented to the 1st World Western, so in Philippines .....

KKK - Kataastaasan, Kagalanggalangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan, or Katipunan for short. Anti-Spanish resistance group led by Andres Bonifacio, in which millennial historical revisionists Flips are STILL DEBATING (Make that, online comment wars) who is the TRUE NATIONAL HERO as of today (Dr. Jose Rizal or Bonifacio), just RIGHT AFTER they have watched Supremo and Robin Padilla's Bonifacio.

Shabu-Shabu - Japanese hotpot, similar to sukiyaki.

Mitsubishi Pajero - Wankers they may be, but they are no laughing matter in the DAKAR Rally. XD

And I also found out about it's original intention of it's name, being named after Leopardus pajeros, the Pampas cat, which is native to the Patagonia plateau region of southern Argentina.

"PERFECTO" Yasay Jr. - ..........'Nuff said.

My guess is they presume the real USA-based K-Mart is too busy trying to keep their head about water business-wise are too busy to bring a trademark lawsuit across an ocean to the land of the Feel-Up-Peens :-p

Gshock,
Well I done my part last year. You know the Lucky Me brand right? One day I took a closer look at some of their noodles they called Fat and Thin when the icon caught my eye. Yes as a trademark for Fat and Thin they had none other than Laurel and Hardy. Now that got me to wondering about a few things so I sent the Laurel and Hardy estates an email asking about it.

Within a few hours I got replies back saying the filipinos did not have permission to use the likeness of Laurel and Hardy and asked me to send them pictures of the packages. This I did. Next reply from L&H was thanks and they would take care of the filipinos. L&H estates were not very happy about the images being used.
