Yup, you've undoubtedly heard of it; the day after Thanksgiving, the
biggest shopping day of the year. This year, Wal-mart started their BF
sale at 10pm Thursday. There have been several incidents of violence
incurred by people who have lost their minds. And those BF sales
continue today.

I came up with a little poem, based on a well-known Christmas carol:

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la, la, la

To go shopping this weekend is folly,
Fa la la la la, la la, la, la

You'll end up in a lot of pain,
Fa la la la la, la la, la, la

Black Friday shoppers are all insane,
Fa la la la la, la la, la, la

If you don't live in the US, consider yourself lucky this weekend. For
me, the weekend consists of avoiding the big-box retailers like the
plague, not easy since the two stores within a few minutes of my house
are a Wal-Mart and a Super Target.  :P

But at least I had herb-baked salmon for Thanksgiving. :)
