Friday Funnies

Ah, Black Friday: The gift that keeps on giving. As some Walmart employees are agitating for a living wage, Sears customers in San Antonio are throwing hands and drawing firearms. Some people clearly did not enjoy enough mood-altering tryptophan on Thanksgiving.

At the higher-end shops, meanwhile, those mannequins you’re inspecting are inspecting you right back, with cameras and facial-recognition software not unlike that used by les flics. Hey, there’s one … whoops, nope, it’s just Mitt Romney.

Meanwhile, here’s something to leave on the shelf, no matter where we are in the shopping season. And fuck Weepy John Boehner and the horses’ asses he rode in on.

    Speaking of Black Friday, my better half is in the process of furthering her education, and as part of one course she’s required to invite people to discuss social justice. She’s doing that via a blog, and her post for this week is about Black Friday. Have a look, http://becomingcriticallyconscious.wordpress.com and if you could leave a snarky comment, even better!

    Just reading “John Boehner” turned the Pilsner Urquel I was enjoying into goat piss.

    I had Turkey Day dinner with friends up in Ft. Fun. I headed back down to the People’s Republic at about 8 pm. Passed a couple of Mall Warts along the way. Parking lots were packed. Unbelievable.

    Back in Greater Crestonia tonight. No Black Friday madness here. I did make a Black Friday purchase of sorts – a sixer of Fat Tire from our local privately-owned booze shop. Life is good. 🙂

    Can you imagine fifty people a day … I said, fifty people a day, walking in, singing “fuck you John Boehner,” a walking out? They’d think it was a movement.

    Best thing to do on Black Friday is not shop unless its at a small and local store having nothing to do with mass marketing. I hate it when one has to assume some looney is packing heat in a chain store to make sure no one cuts in line….

    “fuck you John Boehner,”

    F___ you John Boner! They should use those mannequins to keep an eye on the gun-toting whackos. Sprawl-Mart will just hire low-wage humans to do the same job instead of spending $5K per mannequin. Shopped at the supermarket on Black Friday where I noticed they’re competing with the department stores who now sell groceries by selling TV’s and smart-phones. The whole thing reminds me of the question – “When you look back upon your life, will you remember the things you bought or the things you DID?”

    Spent thanksgiving in Dalton, NE, population 285. The only thing anyone was doing at five a.m. Friday morning was finishing off a second cup of joe before heading out to do chores.
