World's Most Awesome Labor Day Sale

Don't miss it!  Limited time only!

Save SEVENTY-FIVE CENTS on an area rug!1!eleventy!1!!!

I mean, I understand the immense social pressure involved with ensuring that Labor Day is celebrated with all members of the family around the table and all proper religious observances (one round of cornhole, minimum, and viewership of at least three consecutive film frames of Jerry Lewis) arranged for.  But come on, Target.  Why must you desecrate Labor Day so?  Why must you mock its deeper meaning?  Why not just utterly refuse to also drastically slash prices on bedding and horrible creepy pillows shaped like color blind owls while you're at it?

I want my country back.

While sitting in the paddock at Monmouth Park this holiday weekend, I saw a man with the WORST toupee.

“He must have snuck into a mini-golf joint at 2 a.m. with rug-cutters and helped himself to the astro-turf on the 3rd hole.”

Thanks for the heads-up about Target’s tacky Labor Day 2010 Area Rug Sale.

He must have snuck into the store at 2 a.m. and then found out he didn’t need the rug-cutters.

We Americans do strange things on our holidays.
