You think insulting people is funny? Weird British humor, I guess

Well, we have it here in UK but, the news today revealed that there has been an online spending surge both here and in US More dignified at least!

Are you saying you actually think Gene Wilder said that? It's a meme. Someone took that image and put words on it. And it's not a joke - it's preachy.

By British humor,I meant that you apparently think it's funny, since you posted it in this thread.

I must be less sensitive. I took no offense. It's just a quip.

???? What?

I am sorry you seem to have difficulty in understanding me. My sentences were fairly straightforward, i.e. not cryptic. I was referring to shopping online being more dignified, i.e. regardless of country. If you read it again you will see it says both UK and US.


However, when I first joined here I was tipped off about the attitude to those who are not American, notably the Brits and I now see why. Jeez. Chill!!!

Thank you.

It was not a barbed/targeted joke at all since Black Friday is not just an American event, i.e. occurs in UK too.

I apologize. I did misread that. I don't have my knickers in a twist. (Someone from the US would say, "panties in a bunch".)

It has been taking place in the US for many decades. This is the first year that I am hearing that it takes place in the UK too. I believe it is because of the influence of US retailers on the internet. Black Friday, as an event for sales, is fairly new in Canada.

There was nothing wrong with creative's post. The Gene Wilder pic has been used for many other things as well! Let's get back to posting funny stuff!

Hilarious, Marc!

I just want to add a general comment about Black Fridays. For a few years, I worked in a mall that offered free gift wrap for anything bought in the mall. Any store. (HooBoy, have you ever tried to wrap a kayak? Don't ask...) Anyway, most of the people who showed up at our unit had been shopping for gifts to give on their December holiday of choice. Not only were there hundreds of people very thankful for the fact that we were saving them the time and trouble of wrapping the presents, they in turn made many family members and friends very thankful for being gifted with something nice. So, no matter what some internet meme may say, there is a way to be thankful in all we do.

Unfortunately, this is not possible, according to snopes.com, but it's funny anyway
