They Might Be Mimes

Leave it to DC to hype the (hopefully) coming "Black Friday" (yes, Virginia, it has its own website) shopping day this Friday. Possibly with mimes.

The Metro will open at 4 a.m., there will be extra police officers and portable toilets... and street entertainers to amuse the shoppers waiting to enter the stores at the new Columbia Heights shopping center. (Ahem, Target and Marshall's are the anchor stores. Big Whoop.)

... "the deployment of 30 police officers to the area that day (11/28), the temporary installation of portable toilets (although the exact location was not shared), and street performers to keep waiting shoppers occupied until they could get into the stores, which will be opening early that morning.

DC/USA is expecting people to sleep over Thanksgiving night and anticipates seeing lines that go around the block by the following morning."

I'm not going.

I don't know anyone who is, either.

Because I'd be pissed if there were no mimes to ridicule.
