Black Friday on Thanksgiving

The statement by the Walmart exec that associates are “excited” to work on Thanksgiving embodies everything that is wrong with elitist management culture and its dehumanization of low-level employees.

While drawing the second panel of this cartoon just before dinner, I have to admit I was overcome with a powerful craving for Turkitos, which, alas, do not exist in real life.

    Panel three is some cogent observation but as you noted, panel two is brilliant marketing. It’s hard to believe that this product does not already exist. With Bacitos [bacon-flavored tortilla chips] being sold the rest of the year.

    *contains no actual bacon
