Another fun contest where you can win a limited edition Black Friday @ GottaDeal.com t-shirt!

This one is simple: reply to this thread with a Black Friday-themed haiku. For those unfamiliar with it, a haiku is a 3-line poem with the first, second and third lines having 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively. It does not have to ryhme, but should create some kind of imagery in the reader's head, so be creative!

An example Black Friday haiku would be:


people skipping lines (5 syllables)
crashing carts into others (7 syllables)
glad i stay at home (5 syllables)

So come up with your own and post it here. Entries will be accepted until Thursday morning at 11am ET and then I'll pick 2 winners from all correctly formed haikus and those 2 members will each receive a BF t-shirt :)
