I will go just to take photos of peoples' fat butts clamoring for yet another worldly object from China. I am especially fond of the triple ripples types. Shorts riding up where the sun don't shine. If they are sipping a green beverage, all the better.

You may have a point...but i'm thinking the opposite...

So many people out of work, and others REALLY tightening their belts because of what is going on...I think BF may be a bust this year.

Maybe not around this forum......but been around long enough to recognize satire when I see it.

Bring on Black Friday!
Don't trip at the door. Is it worth being trampled over unless you know you have a surefire case against the store? If so, your Christmas shopping could be paid for......and next year too, along with your Maui suntan.
And you would make another lawyer........smile.

Can't wait to see what a banner year retail sales are gonna be after THIS Christmas, though.
Whatever the numbers, it will surely be a good indicator of how happy the new year will probably be.

My guess:

2010 =

After the HUGE success of Obama's mass-job creation, Green Energy and no inflation to fear, the inevitible "recovery" that will surely come next year........will obviously bounce Christmas retail sales back for next year, I'm sure.
Or....is this wishful thinking?

I can't wait to see the videos of people in walmart fist fighting over the last 20 dollar DVD player.

People in this country need a big fat piece of humble pie.

Black Friday=Sheeple

Why anyone would line up outside of a store all night to supposedly save a few dollars is beyond me.

Have you seen the example of TV prices for that day that was on Yahoo yesterday? Yes there will be scenes like that one and I voted with at least one death. Those prices will bring the heavy crowds to those stores.

If you haven't seen that one I will get it for you and you can start seeing why I say what I did.
