In American Walmarts, you can buy discount Toby Keith CDs, pleated chinos, and 16 ft. trampolines. In Chinese Walmarts, you can buy live frogs, dead crocodiles, and scores of mixed cuts of meat from giant bins (see left).
Though I find the concept of mixed meats tremendously fascinating, I don't think it would ever pass in this country. Not only does it seem unsanitary and nauseating, but American consumers might not know a chuck cross rib from a bottom rump roast without a label. Maybe I'm too myopic. How do you feel about mixed meat canisters?
