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.

But why "Black Friday" anyway? Why not Blowout Friday or So-Marked-Down-It's-Practically-Free Friday?

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

UPDATE 6:04 EST: Planned Parenthood has released a statement regarding the active incident:

"Our top priority is the safety of our patients and staff. Our hearts go out to everyone involved in this tragic situation. Planned Parenthood has strong security measures in place, works closely with law enforcement agencies, and has a very strong safety record. We don't yet know the full circumstances and motives behind this criminal action, and we don't yet know if Planned Parenthood was in fact the target of this attack. We share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country. We will never back away from providing care in a safe, supportive environment that millions of people rely on and trust."

UPDATE 4:56 EST: A total of eight people have been taken to a local hospital. Officers are currently exchanging gunfire with the shooter who is located inside the Planned Parenthood building.

What a scary situation.

According to authorities, three officers and possible civilians were shot a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs. Law enforcement says the shooter has yet to be located or apprehended.

Goodness Gizmo — Gremlins 3 Is TOTALLY Happening!

DO NOT feed this news after midnight!!

Original Gremlins star Zach Galligan says there will be a Gremlins 3! Gizmo lovers rejoice!

Galligan AKA Billy Peltzer told an audience during a special Q&A at London's Prince Charles Cinema on Wednesday that he thinks the franchise won't start from scratch, but rather 25+ years after 1990's Gremlins 2: The New Batch:

"It's not going to be a reboot. It will not be a remake in any way, shape, or form. Chris Columbus [director] has come out and said that the first film is very near and dear to his heart and as long as he is alive it will never be remade. So the only thing they will be, and apparently are going to be doing, is something along the lines of like 'Jurassic World,' where it will be 30 years later."

Jurassic World made over $1.6 billion worldwide — so we can see how Zach thinks the same formula might work!

The 51-year-old actor continued, explaining:

"I swear on my life, I don't know if I'm in it or not, but I think there is probably a decent chance since I'm one of the few people left standing from the first movie."

Playing coy, are we??

We simply cannot wait for a third installment of little monsters wreaking havoc upon humanity.
