These are a few of my favorite things...

...besides whiskers on kittens. My friend Deb sent me this airplane.

I am posting a few of my favorite irreverent or scroogy Christmas events, rants and other offerings. I think it helps me get through the otherwise depressing holiday season by just laughing some of it off.

Here's the grandmother who stole the nativity baby Jesus. I guess grandmothers are expected to be more well-behaved than other people for some reason.

I guess you could call this one Santa's Slain. The guy has put up a decoration generally thought more appropriate for Halloween and since this is Christmas... well then that's ALL different (and doesn't Christmas start the day after Halloween? Sure seems like it). There's a poll on the page to see what you think of it. Somehow I think that this was bound to be unpopular in Oklahoma.

Spinal Tap had a Christmas record called "Christmas With the Devil", but I'm not 100% sure this Karkis video is for real. Looks like a spoof, but I am not now, nor have I ever been really up on the metal scene. Anyway, it's pretty entertaining and very Tappish. The Most Badass Video Ever Seen by Human Eyes, or... S-A-N-T-A = S-A-T-A-N

And here's Mark Morford's rant. I'm feeling better already.

Luckily there are plenty of extra Santas to go around in case one is an accident victim or morphs into SATAN.
