It's interesting. I was sitting with some friends over Thanksgiving having a wonderful time talking and laughing. It was a truly joyous event. Then suddenly a guest jumps up and says, "OMG, we have to go. It's time for the real Thanksgiving event ... shopping on Black Friday, which is now Thursday."

They rushed out the door as everyone looked at each other. Some were confused until my girlfriend yelled out, "Hey, we may not understand the true meaning of Thanksgiving by not celebrating Black Friday, which is now Thursday, but let's have fun anyway!"

Now let me ask everyone a question. Is it me or did someone play a good old switch-a-roo on the meaning of things? Because I'm starting to feel a little stupid for being left out of the game.

59.2 billion spent over the black friday weekend, up from 52.4 billion last year. We went to Walmart and spent our hard-earned money on some made-in-Bangladesh tee-shirts -- you know, just to show that we care and stand in solidarity with nonunionized workers everywhere who, unlike the union goons, get what they deserve in this life. Because, after all, most of them are unskilled. Still, I'm sure they'll appreciate our gesture back in Bangladesh.
