It's Black Thursday, which we used to know as "Thanksgiving," but it seems this year the C-level execs have decided to maximize prices and minimize their employees' turkey time by starting those sales EARLY. But the prices are so tempting, aren't they? Here's a look at the ghost of Black Fridays past to examine while you're digesting your mashed potatoes, eyeing the circulars and trying to decide if you're really going to leave the house in a few hours.
Last year, a man at Walmart ended up getting tazed and restrained on Black Friday.
Said a bystander:
"This was my first Black Friday shopping experience and I'll never forget what I saw. You see sides of people that they themselves didn't even know existed."
