Yo bitches, it's Black Friday.
Clearly we're not satisfied with 'Trick or Treating', McDonalds and all those American sounding business buzzwords like leverage, touching-base and going forward. This year, UK retailers have decided to adopt 'Black Friday' in a big way. Shopping carts at the ready, let's stampede that store and save some big bucks....

Perhaps next year we'll be hanging out the Stars and Stripes to celebrate the 4th July...

Enough already! Period!

Some of the stories that are coming out are horrific; people being knocked over, police being called. People seem to have lost their dignity.

And all this on the day after thanksgiving when Americans were giving thanks for what they already had. Where's the sincerity? Still, everyone likes a nice lunch.

The retailers who imported this undignified US vulgarity may well have damaged their brands in the process.

The predictable shopping scrums that ensued shows that retailers see their customers as manipulable hordes and have scant regard for their staff who were put at risk by having to referee the madness.

Those images we've seen across TV and social media paint a pathetic picture of humanity.
