Briefly, while I’m digesting and not thinking about writing a proper post, I’d like to offer thanks to Fox News for recently teaching us that “pepper spray is “essentially a derivative of a food product”;
What is awesome, and I’m not saying that this was in anyway related to that, but last night in Los Angeles a woman pepper sprayed her way through a crowd in order to secure some really good deals, effectively making everyone around her extremely delicious.
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.
To combat this, I have proposed several replacement holidays, which have a similar ring to them.
Happy Black Tie Day;
Happy Black Eye Day;
Happy Black Fry Day;
Happy Black Spy Day;
Happy Black Thai 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);
You get the idea. I think hunting for sales and battling off others who are looking to do the same is not what we should be doing today.
Rather, we should be heating up leftovers and conjuring up new, and delicious concoctions on which to liberally sprinkle our peppers spray.
