    Ugh, I hate this nonsense of "Black Friday". The only thing truly black is the souls of the retailers who think this is a good idea.

    I was okay with Black Friday. I never went shopping on that day but didn't really object.

    What I really HATE is "Black Thanksgiving." Can we have a few days a year NOT devoted to profit? And really, does one day off really hurt that much? I hope it backfires. I have friends (and I'll do it too) who intend to boycott stores that opened for Thanksgiving this holiday season. They only message they'll understand is financial.

    Of course, I have no doubt that these places will be packed on Thanksgiving. Sad.

    Turns out that it may be philly's fault.
    Did Philly cops coin 'Black Friday'?

    Don't kill anyone today.

    It's not very Christian.

    Anyone have a favorite Black Friday video or article they want to share?

    Violence or skanky White trash would be preferred.

    Well, I have an anecdote. My sister loves Black Friday- it's the thrill of the chase for her. She saw $200 generators (3000-3500 watts I believe) at Home Depot and wanted one badly. She's in the burbs and loses power now and then. I was going to buy one for my elderly and disabled father because we're terrified he'll lose power. He has an electric bed, electric food pump, you get the picture. So my sister volunteered to buy two generators if she could. I had a perfect excuse not to go with her- it was my turn to take care of dad. So she and my burly 6'3" brother-in-law went to Home Depot. When the doors opened, my faster sister ran to the generators. There were three left. She through her skinny self over two of them and waited for her hub to catch up. This nasty guy comes up and says, "I'm taking these three generators." My sister replied that he could have the third but that two were hers. Whereupon, this creep says, "Yeah. who's going to stop me?" At the very minute my BIL says, "That would be me." Guy backs off. Meanwhile someone else picks up the third generator and walks off.

    Ah yes, the spirit of Thanksgiving is alive and well at Home Depot.
