We’ve posted before that we don’t really like Black Friday. Too much craziness, too many people compelled to work on a holiday. I noted a few stores were actually advertising that they would not be open at ridiculous hours – good for them.
You can learn a lot about the spirit of Black Friday by watching the excellent Teen Titans Go! This show is a staple in our house – the kids love it, and it consistently makes me and the wife chuckle. The show’s writers are obviously from our peer group, often referencing semi-obscure 80’s and 90’s lore in full Seth MacFarlane mode.
The episode rifs on ‘A Christmas Carol’ as so many fine holiday toons have done before, and really put me in the proper frame of mind to go out and do battle within the halls of retail Friday afternoon.
If you have pre-teen kids, you probably already know about Teen Titans Go!, but if not give it a look. The Black Friday episode aired last week and will certainly be on again.
