Right where the 1% want us: fighting over $2 waffle irons


Aw, geez

Things got out of control at one Wal-Mart near Little Rock, Arkansas on Black Friday as shoppers went wild over a good deal on kitchen appliances.

Screams could be heard as the greedy shoppers struggled to grab one (or five) of the $2 waffle irons.

A video of the scene was uploaded by a Twitter user who goes by the name “Ms. Clark.”

There were also at least two instances of people using pepper spray on other customers at Walmarts around the country. Helped them get to the on sale items a bit faster, it seems.

When this is what mainstream America is fighting for, I have to believe the 1% are sitting back, twiddling their mustaches and and quietly cackling with glee. Their position must seem pretty safe when the masses are fighting so intensely over the scraps. Their plan is working perfectly, innit?

(And, yeah, I know, this shit happens every year. And they cackle gleefully every year.)
