Merry F’ing Xmas

Posted 2008.12.25 1.00 in Pointless Blather

Yes, it’s ‘that’ time of the year again. The malls and shops are mobbed, people are actually wishing for snow, and the usual television schedule is continually being pre-empted for xmas holiday drivel.

Of all the television x-mas specials, there is only one which I think truly captures the spirit of xmas. In fact, Dennis Leary’s special doesn’t just capture the xmas spirit, it goes on to stuff the spirit of xmas into a small cage so we can poke at it with pointed sticks. “Jab! Jab!” “Ooo I got it in the eye!” “Ha ha! Take that xmas!”

Moving on, did you know that “Santa” is an anagram for “Satan”? That the former is also known as “Saint Nic” and the latter, “Old Nic”? Ever notice that they both wear red? One must wonder, what ‘Santa’ does the other 364 days of the year…

Happy holidays…
