Thanks for shopping, America

Forgot to put this up as an example of Me Doing Work back when it ran on Thanksgiving. The same sentiments apply to the whole Holiday Season: You are truly an American Hero for going out on days sacred to Christian, Jew, and pagan alike. Even Boxing Day, which a friend in retail said was “way, way worse than Black Friday.”

If you’re feasting with a relative who thinks everything was better back in the day this Thanksgiving, please be kind. There are still people who do not understand that in 21st century America, Thanksgiving is now the day we need to go out and acquire those things that make life worthy of praise.

Go get those presents, America.
