Whatever: The War on Christmas Has Its Subversive Element
...the news story about a bunch of "megachurches" being closed on Christmas day adds a certain zesty tang to the whole proceeding, doesn't it? If the mass retailers of Christ can't be bothered to do up Christmas right, why should the mass retailers of DVD players?...This one time, in college, the Pikers serenaded a Jewish classmate with "Have Yourself a Happy Little Hanukkah".
Good thing O'Reilly the Scoldy Clown wasn't around at the time, I guess; he would have started shouting about the increasing national movement to boycott our music (while of course not *technically* endorsing such a thing himself). Schmuck.
One more thing on The Clown Factor - He consistently denounces MediaMatters as a 'smear' website, which I find awfully revealing; mostly what you find there is transcripts (and the corresponding sound clips or movies) of things people like O'Reilly just said on the air that were stupid, nasty, false or all of the above.
But it's all based on relaying exactly what they said themselves. This by them is "smearing"? Or "Nazi block watcher" tactics? (That gem was from Ann Coulter, surprise surprise.)
Maybe they just don't like it when people actually listen to what they say. Current Events 2 comment(s)
Hey Steve- wasn't that the Wydown Whythm (4 Pikers that lived in Wydown dorm) that sang HYAHLH?
I just love that original arrangement. (assuming it's the one Mach 1 performed with the original lyrics). Did you know that one of the original lines from MMiSL was `Have yourself a merry little christmas...it may be your last'? And on the subject of BO, has anyone else *ever* walked off of Fresh Air? Classy. `Cut her mike!'Add a comment...
