If the zombie apocalypse starts on Black Friday, no one will notice.

what a stupid idea to intentionally let a car hit you -- to refuse to get out of the way -- and try to get money out of it -- they should have sped up and ran them over

Do they not teach English in schools now days?

Where is the "Wal-Mart parking near Seattle lots "?

How does one hit "the many?

And how long until "whne?

Oh, for Pete's sake.

Should we expect anything less than a tragedy?

Alright. I'm at my desk, I've got a mug of hot cocoa, my cellphone is on standby so that my relatives who are standing in three hour lines right now can be gloated at, and here is a nice Fark thread to help warm my morning. Let's enjoy some Schadenfreude.

Hey man, don't forget "they was married"!

I felt bad for them until the article correctly clarified they were potentially living in sin. Smited?

Where's the amusing tag? Anything that happens to these idiots is funny. I hope to hear more about trampling and pepper spray.

Flat screens for 8 bucks. Somebody's gonna die.

This reminds me, aren't their union thugs there today pretending to be Walmart employees. This is going to call for the 4x4 truck!

Ooba Tooba: Flat screens for 8 bucks. Somebody's gonna die.


This.

One of the big reasons for the Wal-Mart workers' strike is that the company refused to pay for extra security this year. Given that people have died in Wal-Mart Black Friday events in previous years, even with extra security, it sounds perfectly reasonable to me for the workers to demand either hazard pay or even more security.

Also, analyzing the deaths in Wal-Mart Black Friday events over the years would make a kickass dissertation topic for some sociology Ph.D student somewhere.

The first casualties in the War on Thanksgiving.

Hmmmm, the store was limiting the number of patrons inside to avoid overcrowding. That's not the Black Friday spirit we've come to know and love!

I was offered the option of going out with the wife and mother in law a few minutes ago. I actually considered it but decided to spend my morning in front of the Tv with you fine people

They were hit by a car on Thanksgiving. It's called Thanksgiving.

Bareefer Obonghit: They were hit by a car on Thanksgiving. It's called Thanksgiving.


The "Black Thursday" name does have a nice ring to it, though. It certainly works to get the point across about how the event itself flies in the face of the holiday it shares a date with.

Thanksgiving is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Black Friday.

It was a Mercury. They haven't been ok since the 50's.

Scary tag instead of Dumbass tag?

I have seen it both ways.

Idiots too lazy, or self-absorbed to get into the side of the lane to let a car by when there is no reason they shouldn't.

Or, really aggressive people trying to nudge their way though crowed intersections when they need to slow down and suck it up. Quite often these people are in customized pickups or larger SUV's.

The smugness is beaming out of my face. I hope it doesn't melt the monitor glass.

I'd like to point out that the "victims," in true Wal-Mart fashion, were likely sauntering across the parking lot, perhaps even walking out in the traffic lane, with little or no regard for anyone but themselves.
 
2012-11-23 10:36:17 AM
I had 9:32 am CDT in the pool for the first shopping death. Any news in that department?

If Obummer would lower the cost of medicines, he wouldn't have to shop for all his medication at Black Thursday sales!!!!

/if you can't afford your medication, maybe Astro-Zeneca can help!!!

Wait, it wasn't a farmer's market?

And a 71 year old not driving a Buick?

I am sitting on "The Throne" in my own home, reading this on my iPhone, so I am getting a real kick, etc......

It's a parking lot, asshole. Pedestrians trump cars in a parking lot. Slow the fark down.

Of course they would; it would be an improvement.

While the barbarian hordes slaughter each other over cheap, Chinese-made crap that will probably give their doomed spawn lead poisoning, I'm not leaving my apartment today. I'm just going to smoke weed, play Civ 5 and eat leftovers. I'm not even putting on pants.
