What was old is new again.

I don’t buy this whole Black Friday nonsense. As someone pointed out last evening around an inviting and loving dinner table, Thanksgiving was the last holiday which up until this point hasn’t been commercialized to the nines. Now that apparently is no longer true;

Evidentially when I wasn’t paying attention, consumerism has become a full contact sport;

Anyway, to combat this, I have proposed several replacement holidays, which have a similar ring to them.

Happy Black Tie Day;

Happy Black Rye Day;

Happy Black Fry Day;

Happy Black Spy Day;

Happy Black Guy Day;

Happy Black Pie Day;

Happy Back Fly Day;

Or if you will, Happy Black Fly Day (which I should note has been celebrated for over a decade by James Hetfield, Bono, surfers, skaters, SoCal motocross douchebags and their stripper girlfriends);

Those who’ve paid attention to this here website for some time might recognize this post as one from a couple years ago, with a few subtle changes. If that’s the case please accept my congratulations on paying attention. If not, then never you mind.

Now turn the computer off and go wish someone who snagged the last Cabbage Patch Kid, or plasma screen TV or whatever, a Happy Black Eye Day;

    Yesterday was Black beer day, evidently a success.
    Today is Black coffee day but I might be adding something amber colored to soften it up a little. Cheers!

    No “Happy Black Flag Day”?

    The guy in the orange jacket at the top looks like an older, fatter Stan Beaver.

    For a short while, I was happy being known as “that mountain biker with the stripper girlfriend”, even though I didn’t wear BlackFlys.

    Happy Black Lie Day… because little white lies are so boring.
