Furniture Riots?

Now, I'm all for capitalism, and have nothing against an honest profit. But I've gotta think that this attitude is perhaps one of the least attractive exports our country provides - and it's apparently happened before.

So of course my friend Ted and I had to comment more creatively. (To be fair, starting it was his idea. I just came up with some of the wording. :))

With apologies to Emma:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to shop cheap,
The violent refuse queued outside the store.
Tell these, the chairless, tempest-tossed, to flee:
For low-cost lamps they'll beat you at the door!
