Too jolly, Miss Molly! A pinnacle of cynical!

December 14, 2007

santa-300.jpgMerry Christmas, Blog Guy! My family has several holiday stories and poems we read every year,  just to help get us in the mood. Do you have something like that? Maybe you could share them with us!

No, I’m kind of the opposite. I’m already in the mood, so I need seasonal tales that bring me back down to Earth.  I have a fine collection of downer Christmas items,  some of them going back as far as oh, Christmas, 2006!

Today, I’m starting a new tradition: “Yule Be Sorry – Oddly Enough Christmas stuff for when you’re feeling too darned jolly!” If anybody wants to turn these into a cute little illustrated Christmas book or maybe a calendar, I’m sure we can work something out…

Maybe Santa’s not chubby, he’s just wearing Kevlar 

Billy, when Christmas is over we’ll start your therapy! 

Don’t look up the chimney, kids…

For that certain sicko on your Christmas list…

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!” 

Got your Santa suit? No, the other kind…

Santa salutes Christmas…or something…

Christmas present a real hit…

When Santa can’t ho ho hold it…

Dear Blog Guy,

I like your idea but we will need twelve (12) each photos for the calendar. Also, a partridge in a pear tree might help (haha).

[…] You can’t shoot Santa, of course, and the helicopter took two rounds in the fuselage and returned to base. But I think I know some drug goons who should expect nothing but coal this Christmas morning. Here is the story, and if you want more tales from the darker side of Christmas, visit Too jolly, Miss Molly! A pinnacle of cynical! […]
