Hey lazy. Whatcha doin’? Bein’ lazy? Forgetting to buy shit for all the people you love?

WalMart! There is nothing quite like a blood riot in a WalMart to make you want to go anywhere else, even Afghanistan. Enjoy this footage from “Black Friday,” the magic day in America when the citizens don’t even pretend to be human. [YouTube]
