Retro Cartoon: Black Friday

Repost of a cartoon I did last year about Black Friday.  Seems this year didn’t live up to even last years dismal results.

Black Friday is so called b/c for many retailers it is what brings them out of the red (losses) and into the black (profits)

  1. Hmmm, the results are in already on Black Friday?

  2. I didn’t even bother to go shopping last Friday, so I don’t know how the stores did. Everyone I spoke with said they were too broke to run out that day. 🙂

  3. This year’s Black Friday should be called “Black Novembe”, since it seems that retailers started on Christmas as soon as Halloween was done.

    Love the Acme sign (looks kinda’ like my stats) … I’m waiting for it to completely self destruct at any moment! 🙂

  5. Dem ears Bearman? Black Friday is now being referred to the day Tiger got a whipping from his missus!

  6. Hey look at the bright side. We’ve got one holiday behind and only a couple more and we can get back to real life.

  7. Ha! Well, as Calvin once said: “If you keep peoples’ expectations low, they’ll never be disappointed.”

  8. Hmmm….So could we have used last year’s news articles for this year as well….i mean sales were down 8%. People still cannot put bread on the table how are we to get clothes….sorry.
    fix the economy first….we need jobs..jobs jobs..

    it is so interesting though that ur cartoon for last year is still relevant.

  9. Ha ha…funny Bearman!

    I have always been fascinated with your Black Friday…probably because I’m Canadian and have never taken part. Usually I just watch people beat eachother sensless for the last discounted PVR on CNN…

  10. Seems like you are correct, this is relivent again!

  11. Pink Friday! It’s motto is “Pink Don’t Stink… much” The only shopping I did was late Friday and it was, I admit, for myself. Bad me.

  12. At last I know why it’s called Black Friday. I thought it was because it was such an incredibly awful day to go outside.

  13. I have never even gone shopping (nor close to a shopping center) on Black Friday.

  14. Into the pink then…..

  15. that’s about right bearman! did you know that 89.9% of all statistics are just made up?

  16. I boycott “Black Friday,” and hope others start doing it, too. The dishonest advertising practices of retailers is pretty gross, in my opinions. “Let’s send out an ad to 500,000 people that we have a 50” LCD TV for $399, knowing we only have 5 in stock.” Yes, the people are at fault for falling for it, too, but it’s borderline false advertising and deliberately scandalous.

    Sorry, misleading advertising is one of my hot buttons. I hate how stupid the corporations think (or know) the consumer is.

    • I can’t help it you were 6th in line after me.

      • My wife is the smartest woman I know (I have been programmed to say such things), she does 85% of her christmas shopping AFTER christmas through January when things are like 90% off! So by the time Halloween rolls around, she’s done and wrapped. People seem to not realize how shallow those holiday sales really are!

  17. Set your goals low…. That way if you reach them or not… It really doesn’t matter… : )

    Dear Bearman and Loony: I would like to propose a collaborative post that we can all post on our respective blogs…I came to this idea because I got to thinking about our talents:
    Bearman talent: funny awesome cartoons
    Loony: creative and funny news telling
    My talent: well.. the list is endless but my contributing talent could be writing the dialogue of the event as my mind imagines it.. hehe

    maybe we could pick something funny that Loony finds.. bearman draws maybe 2 or 3 scenes and I can put dialogue to it?

    copyright idea susispice2009

    😛 lol

  19. You and the Loony bird figure it out and I’ll draw. But you have to limit it all to one scene. I only do single panels…multiples just give me headaches.
