We all know what Black Friday is now: the day when people will trample their in-laws for a great deal on a flat panel TV.

Well, the term has a rather sicker origin than you might expect.

It seems a few decades ago most offices gave their employees Thanksgiving Day off — but required them to come back in and work the following day.

Seeing as how taking that ONE stuffing-stuffed day gave people a four day weekend to spend with their families, many people just called in sick.

In fact, so many

After a 3-year hiatus, Adele is back in full force!

It's no surprise the British crooner will be Rolling in the DOUGH after her 25 album has broken pretty much every sales record imaginable!

But even during her extended break, Rumour Has It that the 27-year-old was still earning a pretty penny! In fact, newly released figures reveal that despite not working, the Hello songstress ended up earning over $25 million last year alone!

That's right! Adele was raking in MAJOR cash while she spent her days taking care of her son Angelo with partner Simon Konecki! Not a bad setup!

Figures were released earlier this week reporting the full yearly earnings of Adele's company Melted Stone — which last year earned over $25 mil! Most of those earnings came from the royalties of the singer's past two albums, 2008's 19 and 2011's 21.

But this isn't all the green the pop star will be seeing from her music in 2014. Adele also owns Melted Stone Publishing Limited, a company which profits from her lyrics and sheet music!

In total, the mother-of-one is estimated to be worth over $75 million — which makes her one of the richest Brits under 30!

It looks like with the success of 25, Adele will only be moving to greener pastures! LOLz!
