While the carnage of Black Friday is behind us, it’s not too late to gather around the warming glow of the Ronco Showtime Rotisserie Cooker and give thanks for all the rival Target patrons we’ve drop-kicked, all the piece-of-crap iPhone 5S’s we’ve trashed, and planned obsolescence we’ve fueled.

After a half-hearted attempt at garnering an indictment of Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Ferguson’s law enforcement apparatus ended their facade of due process yesterday. Several days beforehand, Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency in Missouri, no doubt having gathered that the state’s judicial system had no intention of punishing one of its own.

The video is haunted by a serial killer who, as some reviewers have noted, bears a resemblance to Slavoj Zizek. I will say no more, and simply allow Too Many Cooks to mindworm its way into your brain and lay eggs deep in your subconscious.

Russ Is Caught–In the Net!; Ebola’s Gonna Get You (Unless Mitch McConnell Can Stop It); ISIS, ISIL, ISEETHISISNTWORKING; Hypocrisy for the Win; Elections Have Consequences; and How Many Emus Can Dance on the Head of a Mep Coin?
