In May of 2012, Dave and Chuck the Freak asked me to take part in their “Speedo Challenge.” This stemmed from a discussion about people shopping in a bikini and the show wanted to know if a guy could shop in a speedo.

I tried shopping in a Walmart, Meijer, and also a Whole Foods!  All successful, no one kicked me out.

James is ready to kick off the Speedo Challenge!! Will Wal-Mart let him in?

Images from this challenge got into the hands of the folks over at the People of Walmart and I made my first appearance on the site later that year (believe it was in the early fall of 2012).  This post will also lead to a countless number of chain FWD: emails and also 10 seconds on the Comedy Central @midnight show!
