Food Drive T-shirts will be sold at the Lakewood Police Department on Tuesday. Each shirt costs $15. The proceeds will go to the Emergency Food Network.
This was the most successful Black Friday EVER in terms of sales. It also seems to have set the record for EFFED up moments. Here's a roundup of some of the things your fellow Americans did to save some money on various items . . .
1. The Pepper Spray Incident. At 10:10 P.M. on Thanksgiving, in Porter Ranch, California, just north of Los Angeles, a woman PEPPER SPRAYED her fellow shoppers at a Walmart . . . all to try to clear a path to a crate of Xboxes. At least 20 people, including children, were injured. The woman surrendered to the cops on Saturday. And she DID end up buying an Xbox.
2. The Waffle Maker Riot. Over the weekend, a video surfaced from a Walmart in Little Rock, Arkansas, where people essentially RIOTED over $2 waffle makers.
3. Cops Break Grandpa's Face. At a Walmart in Buckeye, Arizona, 54-year-old Jerald Newman was shopping with his wife and grandson. As a mob descended on the video game section, he wanted to protect his grandson from being trampled. To free up his hands so he could lift his grandson, he put the video game he was holding into the waistband of his pants. The cops saw THAT, thought he was shoplifting, and slammed him to the ground. His face started bleeding like crazy. He was arrested for shoplifting and resisting arrest.
4. Step Over That Corpse For Savings. On Black Friday, 61-year-old Walter Vance of Chapmanville, West Virginia was shopping at Target when he collapsed. He had a history of heart problems and it's believed he had a heart attack. As he was on the ground, dying, other shoppers stepped over him to continue going after discounts. A few nurses who were shopping DID stop . . . Walter was taken to the hospital and died that night.

Over the weekend, 86-year-old Serafino Alfe of Mount Prospect, Illinois was deep frying turkeys for an event at his local country club. As he approached the fryer, he tripped on a piece of cardboard. He knocked into the fryer, and spilled seven-and-a-half gallons of SCALDING OIL on his leg. So instead of successfully deep frying a turkey, he deep fried his own leg. He ended up with third-degree burns and needed a skin graft. He's recovering in the hospital now, but at least he has a sense of humor about the whole thing. He says he loves deep fried turkey, but he doesn't want to taste his own, quote, "drumstick."
