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…

 

 
But not so well for this guy…

 

 
Aw, mom…

 

 
A satisfied customer!

 

 
Now this sounds like an odd special…

 

 
No idea.

 

 
Score!

 

 
Maranda’s going in!

 

 
Hang in there, Kaylyn…

 

 
Now, now, Darth…

 

 
Getting teased…

 

 
Madness in Quincy…

 

 
Now that’s a sister…

 

 
And amid the madness, life goes on…

 

 
A shopper scoffs…

 

 
Hold it together, Jerod…

 

 
Carmen’s life will never be the same…

 

 
And some were inspired…

 

 
Injured in the line of duty…

 

 
Someone forgot what day it is…

 

 
The irony…

 

 
Good old dad…

 
Victory tastes so sweet!

 

 
Aw dad, not here

 

 
But think of the savings!
