Fanta. I don't recall having Crush in a very, very long time. Same goes for Fanta but I remember it more.

Fanta - 6
Crush - 3

It was close, but it wasn't really that close. Fanta crushed the opponent in a fantastic victory. Orange you glad I'm out of jokes?

That last one was flat.

Walmart

Where's the fun in holding a battle between two things that are almost exactly alike?

There's nothing in common between these two stores.
Wallmart sells everyday stuff, cheap, and crappy as well.
Ikea sells ridiculously overpriced items.
I dislike both but Wallmart is unfortunately convenient.

There's nothing in common between these two stores.

They're both multi-billion dollar retailers, they both use convenience as a selling point, you can find a very wide variety of merchandise in a single store, you can find them all over the world, most of them are painted blue...

Walmart because at my age I don't need to buy furniture or whatever the heck Ikea sells, but Walmart is always convenient for whenever I need something for cheap.

My vote goes to Walmart.

Ikea by default, as Walmart is really unethical. IKEA has had it's own share of gaffes, but not on the same level.

Ikea sells ridiculously overpriced items.

I'm not entirely sure what IKEA is like in the US, but it's very cheap in the UK.

IKEA because Walmart basically sucks. And there are massive numbers of creepers who go to Walmart.

IKEA does try very hard to make sure they have what you're looking for, and that's what I've always loved about them. That, and you don't have to leave the store to eat lunch.

There's an IKEA about three hours away from my house. Last time I went to one was about 3-5 years ago, but I remember being bored out of my skull, and when I stopped for six seconds to look at a soft couch my family abandoned me, so after looking around and getting more and more desperate, I gave up, went into the kids' section, and found a nice chair to go to sleep on. I was woken up about five minutes later by some noisy little kids, though. I decided that sleeping was not a good idea because I might get kidnapped, so I went to the restaurant section and bought something that had to do with cheesecake. It was around that time that my mom appeared, politely dragged me out of the store, and then screamed at me for the entire drive back. The cheesecake thing was good, though.

And that's my only experience with IKEA. It wasn't completely bad, though, and it's classier than Walmart, so I guess my vote goes there...

I've never been to Ikea, so voting for Walmart.

Also, birthday post. Tally-ho and whatnot.

IKEA. Walmart's a lotmore run-of-the-mill, for milk and such, but IKEA can practically fill your entire house, and the design of the nearest IKEA building always fascinated me.

Wal-mart is a terrible, stinky place that I have rarely stepped into in order to avoid the scum-of-the-earth that seem to reside there. I can't see why someone would consider voting for it.

Ikea, on the other hand, is clean and happy place. The kind of place where getting lost is an enjoyable adventure, rather than a dangerous peril that makes one fear for their life. I have glad memories of the children's area and the ice cream. A day at Ikea used to be my only wish. Better yet, are the quality meatballs. With a delicate taste and a hearty texture, they surpass even the hot dogs of Costco.

I could go on and on but I think I'll stop here. Ikea is obviously the superior store.
