Black Friday is the day that the 47% kill each other for a discount on some crap made in China. I think the rich made that day up so they could laugh at the poor and bet on the death toll.
And the best of them all, the opening scene is straight out of a zombie movie.
Black Friday illustrates everything vile about our consumerist culture.

Evidently, I'm not the only one thinking this.
kill each other for a discount
From what I've heard, there's nothing "special" about the discounts on this particular day of the year.
They understock the items that are there to pull you in the door, knowing that when they run out, most of you will buy SOMETHING. Because you didn't get up at 2AM to come home empty-handed. I went to one years ago because I was bored. Didn't buy anything, decided it wasn't worth my time.
Believe it or not, some of the females in my clan actually enjoy doing this. It's a sport for them and they get very excited.
No crazier than football I think.
I got 5 cargo shorts for $35 from Kohl's last week, combining their 70% winter clearance sale with 25% night owl and counting the $15 "Kohl's Cash" I gotta use this week on something.
Fuck yeah. My sartorial needs are set for life : )

So true. I've never done Black Friday and never will because the ruse is so obvious. Same kind of things that car salesmen do. I did Cyber Friday though, because it costs nothing in terms of time and effort and walking away is easy.
