"Help" Is on the Way

This one is an oldie but a goodie from the original Gallery of the Absurd. Here's an image from a Wal-Mart ad around the late 1990s. This guy just looks so damned pathetic, I don't know who to feel more sorry for: him or his potential customer. Who exactly is in need of help here?

There are several jokes that I could make here--e.g., regarding the hands in the pocket, the goofy toothless grin, the possibly drooling open mouth, the question of whether this guy is off-script and should in fact be attending the front doors--but with potential accusations of ageism in mind, I'll just let it go.

Could that be Sam Walton?
