Smashed Hat: I laughed at that article way too much. I'm old, aren't I?


You had the correct response that anybody of any age could have to a Dave Barry column.

Dave Barry is as funny as those guys who argue over whether its called dressing or stuffing. And by funny I mean not funny.

robohobo: Um...peasants racing to buy stuff on Black Friday isn't exactly new. I've been enjoying Black Friday trampling/fisticuff videos for years and years, now.

/lol, let them eat walmart


True, first I remember was a lady getting her arm broken over a Cabbage Patch doll or somesuch in the mid 80's. That said, I feel sorry for anyone that this is true for: "The new Thanksgiving tradition is to gulp down your dinner, then race to the mall". Stay home and get high and drunk folks. You can shop later.

You're correct. Peasants racing to buy stuff on Black Friday isn't new. What is new is peasants racing to buy stuff on pseudo-black friday or, as we used to call it for the last hundred years or so, Thanksgiving.

Maybe in Dave's fugged-up world it's like that, but in the majority of American homes it's still "eat the turkey and chillax in a tryptophan fog".

The Powers That Be may want to pervert Thanksgiving into an assholefest with Black Thursdays, but it's gonna go over like a Quorn turkey.

Mall? Malls and anchor stores are going belly up. It's mostly 'strip mall' type stores.

That said women love to be 'shopper gathers'...instead of going out killing a Moose or a Deer.

They strap a HDTV to the roof of their car and brag about how well they stalked it, waited for it, and finally bagged.
