Very nice Lucas.  ;D

That is funny, but for myself anyway the problem with WLIIA is that if you watch the same episode several times over, the jokes start to become less funny and more annoying.
But... you know that multiple episodes of the series exist, right? You don't have to watch the same episode over and over for all eternity. I like Scrubs, but if I only watched the musical episode over and over, it'd get hella boring.
Well let me put it this way, back in the day they used to show WLIIA all the time on Comedy Central. It was only a matter of like two weeks that I started seeing the same episodes over... and over... and over... and over... and over... and over.... and you get the idea.

Don't think I'll be going back to Kohl's any more...

 ;D Maybe in the future they should think a little bit more critically about their sign arrangement.

Any idea what country that outlet is from?  Looks close to a US outlet, but I've never seen that plug type before, or what it denotes.

I kinda' wondered about that myself, but didn't 'do' anything about the curiosity until your question.  I entered "electrical outlets grounded" on Google images, and scrolled page after page of results to finally find these two things...
US outlet types - the 20 amp grounded has a single 'dash' to the side of one slot (I also saw that same 'T' type slot on GFCI [ground fault circuit interrupt] outlets for use in bathrooms and such):


but then I found this, from Mindanao in the Philippines:

which seems to be our world-wandering 'emotional outlet' type.

So thank you, VoC, without your question, we'd all be a little less 'world electric savvy'! :)

That's a socket that can accept European type C (2 round prongs) and the NEMA 5-15 (normal USA grounded) plugs.

The thing is, the type C is normally used on 220V outlets, where the NEMA 5-15 is for 110V, so that combo outlet could lead to some fireworks if it's on a 220V system and you plug in a 110V device.

I had a few weird sockets in my house that I removed, combos that you could plug in a NEMA 5-15 or NEMA 6-15, don't know why such an outlet ever existed but I guess they were common in the 50s.  NEMA 6-15 is for 220V devices, they wouldn't work if plugged into the 110V circuit the combo outlets were on.

I have seen outlets like this in European hotels to accomodate Americans.  Many devices you would travel with can operate off either 110 or 220 (like a laptop or phone charger), it's just a matter of adapting the plug.  Plugging in a toaster oven would lead to trouble, but most people don't travel with those.

This one is very common in China, and has a similar concept:

This was standard in the hotels and also in the offices I visited.

Turn that upside down and you  have a pretty comprehensive set of emojis.

Yes, it is becoming the norm to have the power supplies in/for electronics to have universal voltage support.  Used to have to flip a little switch near the plug on a lot of stuff but now you don't even have to do that.
