Walmart on Black Friday: Scenes from the apocalypse
A Sheriff’s department in western Virginia confirms this morning that a scuffle over a parking spot at a Walmart in Tazewell County resulted in a stabbing, which is, of course, how we know that the holiday shopping season is upon us.
We’re collecting videos and tweets of the Black Friday madness this morning.
We’ll begin in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, which experienced a stampede for savings!
This video has been popular this morning, showing a manic shopper pushing through a crowd like a fullback sniffing the end zone…
Here’s a scuffle over something — tablets? — which results in an arrest that a Walmart employee doesn’t want filmed…
And here’s a frenzy over some Rachael Ray cookware in Tennessee…
Things were going great for Amy…

Now this sounds like an odd special…
This Walmart is advertising $9.99 iPads to anyone who throws their baby into a snakepit.
