Hyper-Consumer Culture Begets BoobusTuesday, November 23, 2010
The Idiocracy lives on. The First Family of Best Buy have made history – they have been camping out at a Best Buy store for Black Friday deals since 10am last Wednesday. What is the reasoning behind this?
“We’re tired of not being first and we figured we’ve put in six years, we want to be first.”
These are the values that parents choose to teach their children. Being the first moron in line to buy shit you don’t need on a credit card for which you can’t afford to make payments. And you wonder why we live in an Idiocracy full of ignorant boobs who think the TSA is photographing and invading our bodies to “protect us?”
What was the response from store management? The manager of the St. Petersburg Best Buy store presented them with a “First Family of Black Friday” award. An award for squander and stupidity – welcome to the new religion of consumerism. And to think Mencken coined the term “Boobus Americanus” before there ever was such a thing as Black Friday.
