Paupers – Black Friday Edition

Hello, everyone!

Many of you probably have already hit the streets to catch all the amazing deals that are happening today. Or you are just getting in from a late night after taking advantage of the even better Thanksgiving evening discounts. (If the second, hopefully shopping on a full stomach mellowed the bargain-hungry crowds!) Or you couldn't care less about shopping and are looking in the refrigerator for tasty leftovers.

Whatever you decided to do, we thought we would just spread a little humor about this crazy day that we call BLACK FRIDAY. Enjoy!

"Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall.  We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space."

-Dave Barry

"Buying something on sale is a very special feeling.  In fact, the less I pay for something, the more it is worth to me.  I have a dress that I paid so little for that I am afraid to wear it.  I could spill something on it, and then how would I replace it for that amount of money?"

-Rita Rudner







"Why do people go shopping on Black Friday? They are thankful that they survived their Thanksgiving feast."

-The Daily Dose






HAPPY SHOPPING! We hope you make good headway on your Christmas list, find everything you're looking for, and avoid any mall-stampedes.
