Put away the turkey and grab the car keys it's time to shop.
The day after Thanksgiving, is affectionately referred to as Black Friday. The singular most important shopping day of the year. Deals galore. "Shop early and save!" Normal rational humans acting completely the opposite waiting in endless lines at ungodly hours, in frigid temperatures. All for the "unbeatable" sale prices. Shameful, who does this?
As I await in this desolate park lot full of bargain zombies I have compiled for your pleasure my top five list this week. The subject. Fridays
#5 - Black Friday - The day is a total ridiculousness of insanity in every way. Yet the deals a ruthless educated hunter (shopper) can procure are at times utterly amazing.
#2 - Friday - The Motion Picture - In 1995 Ice Cube and Chris Tucker starred in the cult classic Friday. A stoner drama featuring a hilarious day in the life in the LA ghetto. The film grossed over $28 million at the box offices.
#1 - Good Friday - Yes I'm Catholic, so sue me. It's not popular these days but one can not argue the moralities and ethics and values it provides. Good Friday in Catholicism is an important part of the faith. However if you are still having trouble appreciating the date at least recognize the significance of the three day weekend and the Easter feast you will be enjoying in a couple days. Plus there is no shopping, or gift giving of any kind the entire weekend except maybe candy. Now if that doesn't sell you than I don't know what will.
