It is always a good time to buy and every day brings a new sale and every event brings a new buying opportunity. Everything is for sale, everything is on sale and there is always an urgency in your need to act and act fast to take advantage.
Consumers camping out for days suffering sleep deprivation and on edge. Shoppers pushing and shoving to get into the store. People being trampled to death in the rush of humanity to get to the deals. People being punched, shot and pepper sprayed to get to the bargains.
The important thing is to BUY NOW!!!
We suffer from a very dangerous disease in this country called consumer diarrhea. Its symptoms are manifested most vividly on days such as Black Friday. Its most blatant symptom is when a person becomes violent to satisfy the urge to purchase. More subtle symptoms include the insatiable appetite a person exhibits to buy more stuff irregardless of need, tying your self-worth to the things you own and the “keep up with the Jones’ syndrome.
Left untreated this disease could result in buying ourselves right out of existence! It surely results in people buying a lot of unneccessary, unneeded CRAP!
People with diarrhea can’t stop pooping. People with consumer diarrhea can’t stop buying. It’s a sickness and needs serious treatment.
The Church of the Holy Shitters offers treatment. Recognizing the disease is the first step. Achieving the state of “Soft and Fluffy” and practicing ass-forward waste-end first thinking on a day to day basis offers a cure.
