It's Like Christmas in July, Only With More People Trampled to Death
In a true sign of the times, Best Buy is holding a Black Friday in July event tomorrow. You can find sale information on their site here.
A quick search verifies the word "Christmas" doesn't appear anywhere on the sale page. Yet another example of corporations bowing to special interests trying to remove Christ from mobs of screaming shoppers clawing at each other's throats in a mad rush for discount MP3 players.
All I can say is the 4th of July better watch its back: Black Friday has taken its rightful place as a holiday in its own right, and there's little point debating which day is truly more American.
I just wish we'd had more notice. We didn't even have time to buy a turkey for dinner tonight.
