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 BARBIE FOR CHRISTMAS
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.
