I turned on MSNBC this morning as I often do when I am finishing my first cup of coffee. There were newscasters stationed at various retail outlets and malls across the country. Some had spent the night in the stores, ready to report on the spending habits of those who pull an overnighter on Thanksgiving. I felt like I was watching some kind of post-apocalyptic shopping nightmare. I wanted to climb back into bed, pull my covers over my head, and transport myself and my family back to the time before Black Friday took over the start of the holiday season. Then I opened my computer, went to Twitter and saw that #WalmartFights was trending.
Black Friday is ruining us and I’m not kidding. How is it even possible that every year there is an infinite amount of stuff still in demand? How much electronic crap can we possibly shove into all of our homes? How many crappy, expensive toys can we really fit into our kid’s rooms? Endless amounts, apparently. And nobody is going to stop us.
Here’s a round-up of some of the most disturbing images from the Black Friday front lines. Happy Holidays! Try not to get punched in the face while you’re reaching for that unbelievably low-priced flat screen.
Doesn’t that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Yay, humanity.
Are those pots and pans made out of liquid gold?
These people are going crazy over TOWELS, so you can go cry into your coffee now.
Seen enough yet? There’s an endless amount of these kinds of videos online today. Oh, and someone was stabbed over a parking space at a Walmart in Virginia.
