A Christmas Story

Filed under: Christmas,Humour — aproposofnothing @ 9:10 am

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.

One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about.

The letter read:

Don’t f*ck with Rudolph and his gang, capeche? From MAD TV’s Christmas Show.

The Spirit of Christmas – NSFW Language

Filed under: Christmas,Entertainment,Fun Stuff — aproposofnothing @ 8:46 am

This is the original South Park video. It came out around 1995. It wasn’t on TV until 1997. When I saw it, there was no youtube and the internet was in it’s infancy. I watched it on VHS with a bunch of friends.  That was how it was passed around back then, copy the video tape and pass it to your buddy,

David Bowie and Bing Crosby – Little Drummer Boy

Filed under: Christmas,Music — aproposofnothing @ 8:45 am

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs. The story goes that Bowie did not like Little Drummer boy and the writers wrote Peace on Earth as a replacement. When the stars met that morning, they decided on a medley and rehearsed for only an hour. It turned out to be a classic. Bing died a month later.  More here.

WKRP Turkey Drop

As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!!!”WKRP in Cincinnati Station Manager, Arthur Carlson

Based on Reality
Oddly enough, this famous WKRP episode was loosely based on a real event! Back in 1946 (some sources say 1945), Yellville, Arkansas inaugurated the “Turkey Trot Festival” which included a wild turkey calling contest, a turkey target shoot, a Miss Drumsticks Pageant and oh yeah: a live turkey release from the roof of the courthouse.

After a few years, someone thought it might be fun to actually toss the poor gobblers out of a low-flying airplane for the event. This repeated for a number of years until 1989 when a national animal-rights protest cast the event in a bad light and the “National Enquirer” splashed a photo of the event across the nation forcing promoters to abandon the turkey drop.

Holiday Greetings

Filed under: Christmas,Fun Stuff — aproposofnothing @ 12:11 am

To All My Liberal Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.
I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2011, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great.
Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere .
Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

To My Conservative Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

No Nativity Scene in the Capital this year

Filed under: Christmas,Humour — aproposofnothing @ 10:39 am

This just in, hot off the presses. After a lengthy court battle and millions of dollars spent lobbying, the Supreme Court has ruled that there will not be a Nativity Scene in the United States capital this Christmas season.

Contrary to popular belief, this isn’t for any religious reason. Congress simply has not been able to find three wise men and a virgin at the Nation’s capitol.

There was no problem, however, finding enough asses to fill the stable.
