Black Friday Quote of the Year

November 29, 2013
Black Friday live: Dummy holds shopper's place, cops say man shot over TV

Police Lt. David Gordon says the victim was carrying the TV at an apartment complex near the University of Nevada, Las Vegas when someone fired warning shots, prompting him to drop the appliance. Gordon says the robber snatched the TV and took it to a vehicle, and the victim tried to wrestle it back. That's when the robber fired shots and hit the victim in the leg.

Is that the quote of the year? No. Brace for it though. Here it comes!

It's unclear what happened to the TV.

WTF! How can they just leave us dangling like that? Is the television okay or isn't it? We know it was dropped. We know that there was some wrestling going on after that. We know it was taken away in a vehicle by a man with a gun. It just doesn't look good at all! What if the television is dead? If there isn't a ransom demand within the next 72 hours I'm going to start assuming the worst!

Let us hope and pray that the television is okay and will be reunited with its one true owner. Just think how much sentimental value was built up in their brief time together. It's like losing a baby, really. That's what makes Black Friday so special: so many people, so many solid gold babies.

What is it that makes a complete stranger dive into an icy river to save a solid gold baby? Maybe we'll never know. - Jack Handey

This is not in the spirit of the season, but how many TVs does anyone need? If household formation is so weak, what explains the need for endless bigTVs and the willingness to brawl over them in the aisles of some big box store.
If this is want folks want,why not make it a new reality show, with points awarded for the best slugs, sneakiest moves or most entertaining riot? Winner could get 2TVs for their trouble.

Perhaps the answer can be found in making a Comcast Monthly Bill to TV price ratio.

It's going through the roof!

Seems like people should be rioting over $200+ monthly bills instead of $100 televisions, but hey, maybe that's just me, lol. Sigh.

How about a game show? Who Wants to Be a Hundredaire? Top prize? One TV!


The studio audience would be encouraged to chant, "Two men enter, one man leaves!"

Or how about...
