It’s the Friday after Thanksgiving, which means it’s time for everyone’s favorite holiday pastime: feeling superior by watching videos of people fighting and trampling over each other in Black Friday sales.

This year's crop of capitalism horror stories aren't just limited to the United States (and Puerto Rico). Shoppers in England were also caught on tape going nuts over deeply discounted products as bargain hunters acted "like savages."
It’s easy to get your fix of shoppers-gone-wild videos, photos, and stories through the #WalmartFights hashtag on Twitter. Selected samples below:
