Gallery: 1/11

After Thanksgiving is over, stores open with deals and sales to draw in Americans for Christmas shopping. Whether you're participating in Black Friday or working it, here are the funniest memes about it. According to, "The first recorded use of the term “Black Friday” was applied not to holiday shopping but to financial crisis: specifically, the crash of the U.S. gold market on September 24, 1869. Two notoriously ruthless Wall Street financiers, Jay Gould and Jim Fisk, worked together to buy up as much as they could of the nation’s gold, hoping to drive the price sky-high and sell it for astonishing profits. On that Friday in September, the conspiracy finally unraveled, sending the stock market into free-fall and bankrupting everyone from Wall Street barons to farmers." (Imgur)
