So, with Walmart opening at 10:00PM on Thanksgiving night this year, I am trying to imagine the natural progression of Black Fridays going forward. I envision Thanksgiving 2012 will look something like this:
"Greeters" from your local Walmart will show up at your house at around 3:00 PM Thanksgiving Day, just as the pumpkin pie is coming out. They will sit down, help themsleves to your food and wine, then grab your wallet, take out your credit cards, sit down at your computer, buy a bunch of made-in-China-shit-you-don't-need from the Walmart web site. As they leave, they will use the bathroom (not bothering to flush) and then step on the dog's tail on their way out the door, which they won't bother to close.
Your kids will be crying, scared to death by the strangers in their house. The dog will be whimpering in the corner, and you'll be checking the good silverware to make sure nothing has gone missing.
Happy F-ing Thanksgiving! See you next year, suckers!
