Freaky Friday: "Bitchin in the Kitchen"

It's Black Friday, the day we all emerge from our turkey coma and indulge in an orgy of consumerism. That's why it felt appropriate to dig out this vintage gem from Richard O'Brien's Shock Treatment, the little-know follow-up to the infamous Rocky Horror Picture Show. There was something in the terms of endearment directed to toasters and microwave ovens in this clip that just screamed "Freaky Friday Black Friday Edition!" at me, so I am screaming it back at you. Or, really, just embedding the clip for you after the break, like I always do. Happy Black/Freaky Friday, and I hope you don't get trampled by any mobs of frenzied shoppers as you try to buy that $35 MP3 player you saw advertised online... (Thanks to Mr. Cargo for tipping me off to this)
