*LOL* No, I think they sort of missed it there. :)
Wikipedia said:

The term "Black Friday" originated in Philadelphia in reference to the heavy traffic on that day (see Origin of the name "Black Friday" below). More recently, merchants and the media have used it instead to refer to the beginning of the period in which retailers go from being in the red (i.e., posting a loss on the books) to being in the black (i.e., turning a profit).
[...]
Black Friday as a term has been used in multiple contexts, going back to the nineteenth century, where it was associated with a financial crisis in 1869.


Personally, perhaps because my mother was a stockbroker and my father was an accountant, "Black Friday" always referred to the stock market crash for folks in my family. Just like "Black Tuesday" referred to the big crash in 1929 that started the Great Depression.

       
ok, trying to attribute a quote to a link doesn't work. Nested tag issue? Or did I mess it up somehow?

       
Hrm. Probably a code parsing issue. Your tags are set right, it just doesn't seem to like what you tried to do. It looks like it got treated as a code tag would.

       
LOL, Im not sure if it made it to your news, but a month or so a go an Aussie TV show called Hey Hey its Saturday had a reunion special where they got some people from 20 years ago to perform a Michael Jackson tribute they did, Harry Connic Jnr was a guest judge on the segment and well, he went nuts over it about how it was all in bad taste and racist, somehow, some greeks, indians and arabs i think they were, impersonating a black Michael Jackson is racist in poor Harry's mind, anywho, this cartoon sort of reminded me of that.

Peace out ALL.

       
Prolly just tried to nest one level too many for it. *shrug*

Guess we missed that one too, Fury.

       
Here is the link to it on you tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjrfnSshj-4

       
*poke spammers* What's so especially fascinating about this topic? Hmm? Yes, you, the spammer from the Netherlands, I'm talking to you. Why don't you go find a more useful way of life.

       
*LOL* Maybe the spammer in question only saw the post title and assumed he's hitting some sort of commercial site that's getting thousands of retail shopper hits hourly or something?
