1/. Rip Van Winkle wakes Hears another special deal Can’t get back to sleep 2/. Hard rain gets me down Deep into my inner blues While the sky has none 3/. Why are blindfolds brave? I need to see firing squad Aiming at my head 4/. Holiday snaps out My cue to get my coat on Very nice party 5/. Inspector Gadget E-Bay accessory sale Costs an arm and leg. Arthur Chappell

@Jessicalynnt I tend to be a soft touch for kittens and puppies anyway - that would be no problem

Regarding Rip--did they have Black Friday back then? By the way does England have Black Friday?

We have started introducing Black Friday in the last few years, which resulted in hysteria riots at some big stores last year - I avoid it
