Shopping on Your Mind? 35 Black Friday Memes Sure to Get You ROFL!

It’s that time of the year again! No, we don’t mean Christmas or Thanksgiving, but Black Friday Sales!

We have stood in line at some point in our lives for those oh-so-tempting deals that are on offer! If you’re planning to go on a shopping spree this year, you’ve definitely reached the right corner of the internet.

We’ve got some hilarious Black Friday memes, and a few Cyber Monday memes too as the cherry on the icing.

But hold on, where exactly did the name Black Friday come from?

Well, there are two theories.

One theory is that the “black” in Black Friday stems from the old bookkeeping methods, where profits would be recorded in black ink. So, companies started giving out great deals on Black Friday, hoping to stay in “black” for the rest of the year.

Another theory is that Black Friday was a term coined by overworked Philadelphia policemen.

In the 1950s, these cops had to take on twelve-hour shifts to deal with the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. They started calling this dreaded day ‘Black Friday’.

Whether you believe that Black Friday is nothing but a late-capitalist scam that would have Karl Marx rolling in his grave or you’re just waiting to unleash the shopaholic inside you, we have a meme for every situation!

So, get your shopping cart ready and enjoy these memes.
