Black (and blue) Friday: Shoppers report traditional post-Thanksgiving fistfights!/AbbieEdwards30/status/271921526289358848

Black Friday got its earliest start ever this year. In what has become an annual tradition the day after Thanksgiving, some shoppers were ready to score discount electronics by any means necessary. Those braving the Black Friday sales tweeted on-scene reports of fistfights at the nation's retail stores.

How's this for the holiday spirit?

Some “shoppers” were a lot more interested in face-busters than door-busters.

I wanna go to the mall to get into a fight not even to buy shit..

— Phil Caivano (@Phil_Caivano) November 23, 2012

The goal tonight while Black Friday shopping is too get in a fight with someone, I wanna be in the news

Others figured they could save on the cost of a pay-per-view fight.

Note to mall-goers: there's a smarter way to check items off your Christmas shopping list:

I'll be shopping today….at home….online….in my pajamas. Those of you actually fighting crowds I have only one thing to say: Suckas!
