Merchants to everybody: ‘give us every penny you have…’

‘..or we’ll jolly well make sure your kids hate you forever for ruining christmas. And don’t even try that trick where you tell them that santa ain’t real, cause they already know that.’ Black Friday started 2 weeks ago so the merchant class can milk the sentimental tripe as much as they can get. There’s nothing Christ about the whole thing, except for some manger scene sets so you can pretend to be biblical. I read the book, and spoiler alert in 3.. 2.. 1 there is no morbidly obese elf-changeling, flying reindeer, regular sized non-changeling elves, talking snowmen, tree-killing on a massive sale oops I mean scale, driving up the demand for electricity at the beginning of winter, oh, and the part about the Crusaders oh, I mean “our troops” who are going to spend christmas killing other folks including kids. To put even more money into the bank accounts of the death merchants. It used to be they would wait until Thanksgiving which is the only National Holiday that even comes in the same solar system to any Biblical theme. And they lie about that as well. But this year, they didn’t even wait for thanksgiving to be over. Mall Wart is scheduled to start Black Friday on Thursday afternoon, so you better get your turkey dinner over with by 3 pm… or somebody else is going to get that limited time deal on really overpriced shit. This is the store chain that started putting out christmas stuff before halloween.
