FAMW: Lewis Black’s “Black Friday” Message

This man who appears regularly on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" is obscene, obnoxious, a raving maniac, and my personal hero, except when he doesn't ridicule both sides of a political argument equally. A chapter of the previous book by Lewis Black was devoted to religion, and he had an easy time ridiculing most major religions ... except one which proved difficult to ridicule (and I'll leave it to you as to which one it was).

For today, Black has a message about the excesses of consumerism. Fortunately, he dispenses with the potty mouth, so it can be shown here. Meanwhile, do yourself a favor; don't wait until one week before Christmas to go to the "big block" stores for anything. Shop early, and if you can, shop online. It will make it easier to enjoy this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.
