Subversive shelving.

I noticed something in a Walmart I was in over Easter (Yeah a liberal in a Walmart, wanna fight?).  I was looking at the videos, and unsurprisingly they had a lot of Jesus flicks up for sale, it being Easter and Walmart.  But what I was amused to see was that between rows of Jesusy goodness, was a mass of other films, vampire flicks (crappy ones, but still vampire horror movies.  It may be just me, but I can't help but think that someone at Walmart, who sends out the orders for shelving around the country, has a subtly (A very subtle...) subversive sense of humor.

I mean, Jesus...Vampires.  The blood, the undead thing, the super powers.  It felt like a subtle (A very subtle...) dig to me.

But maybe it is just me.
