Merchandising! Merchandising! Merchandising! (Yuletide Friday) repost

In  lieu of actually posting anything today (due to the need to update pages and edit the 3x2cast, I'm just going to pull last year's post and reboot the one and only Yuletide Friday!  And if I'm feeling generous, I'll get some new stuff up for the next one.

In lieu of actually writing a whole post, I'm going to dedicate Fridays through Christmas just collecting some Christmas-y fun. Plus the combination of beauty, peace, love, and sadistic humor calls for me to set aside some politics. So, let's begin this Black Friday with an appropriate subject:

Merchandising! Merchandising! Merchandising!

Most of my Black Friday recollections, of course were from behind the counter at 6AM, or whenever the hell we opened the store.  Because I was there, running my ass raged selling shit left, right, center, and from various orifici.  It's usually a rush for the doorbusters followed by inconsistent flow of people that may or may not buy something.

Personally, my best holiday days for sales were the last few days prior to Christmas, when the sale went this way:

Customer:  "I need to buy stuff.  Here's my money.  Here's my credit card."

*cha ching*

But on the plus, if we all chip in and get out there and buy stuff, we might stimulate the economy enough that the retail sector doesn't come screaming for a bailout in January.  That would be bad.  I'm sure some companies will tank this year.  On the plus, the sales will carry over into January, which means you don't have to max the credit cards until February.

Which means you can get teat-squeezing fun at a discount....

And even better (and newer):

I know, some of you are screaming about the obsessive commercial aspects that make Christmas suck a dick.  But that's why I'm trying to get that cleared out early so we can get to the rest of the season with minimal commercial intrusion.  And since I couldn't come up with the appropriate Charlie Brown Christmas clip (I'll have some later), that's all I have to say about that.

And if you don't want to head out into the maelstrom, there's always online shopping:  However....

Okay, now that I've got that out of the way, be sure to check out the Christmas music above (assuming I've found and updated the page with it...).
