The US media has given today, the Friday After Thanksgiving, the onerous title of Black Friday. Supposedly this busy shopping day, ladden with blue light specials and 6AM Deals of the Century, lures mass quantities of shoppers to malls, strip malls, lifestyle centers, and just plain stores. Enough shopping is done this day so that all these retailers finally become profitable. In the black in business jargon. Ergo, the name, Black Friday.
So do your part, dear citizen of Corporate America. Get your lazy ass out of bed and away from the table! Fire up that gas guzzling SUV and head to the mall! Do your duty to this great country of ours! Shop! No! Not enough! Shop till you drop!
