Black Friday 2015: The Best of the Worst

The winner of the Lowest of the Low Award goes to a woman in Saginaw, Michigan, who snatched a vegetable steamer from a child’s arms. Naturally, the child’s mother was far from pleased. See for yourself.

All pushing, yanking and punching aside, the Grand Champion of Black Friday Award goes to the gang of merry pranksters at Cards Against Humanity, the politically-incorrect fill-in-the-blank “party game for horrible people.”

Black Friday 2015: The Best of the Worst Yes, for $5, the company will give you absolutely nothing. It’s the only thing the company is selling on its site today. All of its popular other products are unavailable until tomorrow.

“On Black Friday, everybody is selling something,” it explains on its website, “We’re the only company to offer the superior Black Friday experience of buying nothing.”

Who would pay $5 for nothing? A lot of folks, apparently. According to a ticker the site, the Chicago-based company has made over $50,000 and counting on its Black Friday sale.

What happens to all the money? “That’s for us to know and you to find out,” the site explains. “We’ll make the announcement soon.”

Yet another great stunt from the company who brought us 2014’s Black Friday $6 box of poop deal.
