All I Want For Christmas

All I want for Christmas is... Well. I am stumped. I already have my two front teeth, so that's out. Everybody's been asking me for the last two months, "What do you want for Christmas?" My stock answer has been, "I don't know. Surprise me." I have a feeling that I'm in for a few real surprises this year. Which is a good thing -- I love surprises. In gifts, I mean. Some other surprises, like bad mojo and stuff that messes with my karma, simply piss me off.

Lesia's comment on "Clucking" reminded me of this joke I saw on Hale McKay's blog the other day. I'm lifting it for the benefit of those of you who haven't yet had the pleasure of reading his blog -- and hope he won't pop me one for petit larceny. And hey, if you haven't yet visited his blog, you must. It's always hysterically funny.


A little girl is standing in line to see Santa at the mall. When it is her turn she climbs up on to Santa's lap.
"What would you like Santa to bring you for Christmas this year?" Santa asked her.
"I want a Barbie doll and a G.I. Joe," she replied.
Santa looks at her curiously and says, "I thought Barbie comes with Ken."
"No," said the little girl, "She comes with G.I. Joe. She fakes it with Ken."

To all my Jewish readers, I wish you a happy first day of Hanukkah.

I love that joke!

I loved it, too.:)

I never heard that joke, but I guarantee that everyone I know will know it by Tuesday. That is awesome.

Everyone asked me what I wanted for the holidays and I told everyone to just buy a giftcard. Now I have three Best Buy cards and a Toys R Us card. Be careful what you ask for.

Serena Joy said...

Kan, maybe you can get a Chicken Chucker with your Toys-R-Us card. LOL. I like gift cards, especially Amazon and B&N ones. The very idea of "free books," that I can order sitting around in my jammies, practically makes me swoon.:)

Hale McKay said...

No, I won't pop you for lifting the joke - I wish I could say I made it up - but alas, I lifted it also. Thanks for the plug-- now to wait and see if anyone takes the bait and comes over to my place.

But it is a great joke.

Gotta get me one of those Chicken Chuckers.

Serena Joy said...

Thanks for giving me a free pass on the stealing, Mike.:) If people don't flock over to your place to see what they've been missing, it's their loss.

Something tells me there's going to be a big run on those Chicken Chuckers. LOL.

She fakes it with Ken. Oh that's good.

I love the cartoon! I'm obsessed about e-mail enough without actually carrying it around with me.

My sister just sent me an giftcard. I am ordering that Clucker today! I am not so dim I cannot see a sign when it presents itself.

Serena Joy said...

Damn Blogger problems. Glad you were able to get around it, Laurie. I don't want to carry my e-mail around with me, either. I'd NEVER get anything done.

Kan! An Amazon card! That's terrific. You're getting your Chucker. Or the Clucker. Or both. And look what else I found at Amazon -- the Slingshot Flying Monkey With Scream Sound. Alas, it's not currently available, damn it. The thing shoots FIFTY FEET!

the Slingshot Flying Monkey With Scream Sound.

The screaming sound really sells it!

As ashamed as I am to admit it, that's what does it. Oh, who am I kidding? I have no shame. I'm a damn chicken chucker.:)
