A woman was banned from a Wichita Falls, TX, Walmart, Friday, after spending 2-1/2 hours driving an electric shopping cart around the parking lot while drinking wine out of a Pringles can.

A few thoughts on the subject:

1) Why the hell didn't I think of that?
2) If Walmart keeps adding more and more rules it's going to become impossible to shop, there.
3) Which Walmart, around here, could I tolerate being banned from?
4) Why wasn't the lady wearing pajamas? She came up with the Pringles can (genius!) but never thought of wearing pajamas? She was so close to being my hero.
5) This could be a great "ladies' night out" activity.

Pringle's cans are a short-term solution for drinking wine due to the cardboard/foil construction-- although perhaps only a short-term solution is needed.

Lay's Stax cans might be a better option. The all-plastic container does not get soggy: it's easier to wash out the chip residue before use (I generally dislike salty wine, although it can complement a nice merlot, which pairs especially nicely with the cheddar flavors): the oval shape is easier to keep a grip on when going over speedbumps, and prevents it from rolling away across the parking lot if you should drop it.
To prevent spills, and resulting wastage, you can cut a hole in the lid and insert a straw.

According to online sources, a US Pringles can (largest size) can hold 32 oz of liquid when filled up to 1 inch from the top. If a standard pour glass of wine is 175ml (~6 oz), she may have had ~5 glasses of wine in the Pringles can.

In terms of alternative garb, perhaps next time she can wear a burka.
