Black Friday: The Mecca of All Things Evil...

A Wal-Mart worker died early Friday after an "out-of-control" mob of frenzied shoppers smashed through the Long Island store's front doors and trampled him, police said.

The Black Friday stampede plunged the Valley Stream outlet into chaos, knocking several employees to the ground and sending others scurrying atop vending machines to avoid the horde.

When the madness ended, 34-year-old Jdimytai Damour was dead and four shoppers, including a woman eight months pregnant, were injured.

Go right ahead and pat yourself on the back if you can admit that buying your XBOX, iPhone, Wii Fit, or My Little Pony Playset was worth hospitalizing a pregnant woman and killing a man. Congrats, and Happy Holidays to you.

In other news, items are still on sale at every store you walk into. They will be until Christmas. (I doubt they will even be cool in a year. Mazal Tov.)
