11.29 On Jack: Giving Tuesday/Stupid Presents! Nike Store Gets Destroyed By Shoppers, And, “Only In Japan”

Happy Giving Tuesday!! The day when we give to the charity of our choice, preferably one that serves your local community.

If you’re stumped, I like PAWS in Lynnwood for the animals, Treehouse in Seattle for foster kids, and  Food Lifeline for families who are struggling to make ends meet. Huge list here.

Here’s a great way to blow your money, too:

Did you go shopping on Black Friday? Was it scary? The Nike Outlet shop in Tulalip was decimated. The PI calls it an apocalyptic hellscape of orange cardboard rubble. The sale started at 8 pm Thanksgiving night and ran through 10 pm Friday. An anonymous employee told Buzzfeed that an estimated 20,000 customers came through the shop.

Did you see the video a guy posted on Youtube about the possibility of Donald Trump’s youngest son having Autism?
Well, he pulled it down once Melania Trump said she would sue. He says he posted it because he wanted to stop people from bullying Barron Trump over his “weird behavior.” Rosie O’Donnell got slammed after she also suggested that Barron had autism, too. She said her own kid has Autism, and said she felt that, if true, knowing that the future First Son struggles with the same condition as roughly one-in-55 kids, it would help raise greater awareness about the issue.

“ONLY IN JAPAN” STORIES:

Japanese Theme Park Closes Frozen Fish Ice Rink

A Japanese theme park is in hot water after freezing thousands of fish and other sea creatures into the floor of an ice skating rink. An estimated five-thousand fish and crabs and a host of various other shellfish were part of the Freezing Port at Japan’s Space World Theme Park. Officials say everything was purchased at a local market and the fish were already dead when they became part of the rink. But online backlash has been brutal, so much so that the attraction was forced to close. The rink will now be thawed and an “appropriate religious service” will reportedly be held before the fish are re-purposed, this time as fertilizer.

Domino’s Tests Reindeer Delivery

Domino’s is finding new ways to deliver pizzas. The company has started testing delivery via reindeer. The reindeer tests are currently only happening in Ishikari, Japan.
