Throwing Shade

Tis the season to go shopping! When you’re tired and hungry after spending most of the weekend shopping until you drop, all you want to do is get off of your feet, rest and relax for a few minutes. Some people choose restaurants while others will stop and grab some fast food. If you’re like millions of other Americans, you’ll most likely stop at one of the more popular fast food places like McDonald’s, Burger King or Chick-fil-A, to fuel up before you fill your cart again and keep burning through your credit cards.

With tons of money poured into marketing, and especially on super popular shopping day like Black Friday, you probably would expect big brands to be on their game, ready and prepared. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for McDonald’s this year, and Wendy’s was right there to call them out on it. These two fast food chain rivals seem to have some pretty hilarious Twitter banter throughout the year, and this day was no exception.

Acting Like Animals

The holiday season is upon us and now that Thanksgiving has passed Christmas is on everyone’s mind. During Thanksgiving, most of us happily gathered around the table laughing and smiling, with hearts full of joy as we talked and napped the day away. But even among the most thankful, you will find tons of people just waiting to run out and get those Black Friday deals. These folks spend hours, even days carefully planning their Black Friday route for wee hours of the next morning. These hardcore super-savers invested a lot of time and effort to decide which stores to go to and when, almost like a military drill with exact locations, times and tasks.

However, there is a dark side to the season of deals. In fact some retailers have such good deals people turn into herds of untamed, flaming idiots who trample over one another for a TV. Don’t get me wrong I love a good deal, but you won’t catch me in a herd of animals like this.
