Merry Ho Ho, y’all!

Midnight in Old Blighty. Uncle B wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas, but he felt funny doing it in the Dead Pool thread.

So I made him this here post.

According to the NORAD Santa tracker Ol’ Fatty is currently over Lisbon, Portugal.

It won’t be long now.

I’ll get the axe.

We (minions) wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Here is your Christmas thought, passed along from a friend today:

Everything will be fine in the end and if they aren’t fine, it can’t be the end yet

Pass it on :-)

Thank you Stoaty and Uncle Badger and the splendid and erudite commentators on this blog who bring the funny and the smarts.

May this Christmas be the best you’ve ever had but let it pale in comparison with those yet to come.

Best to you all and a good night,

Stephan

What a relief to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I saw that Etta James is on a breathing machine and expected to see that Stoaty was out a dick again! So much nicer to see Christianist greetings than a new dead pool winner!

You are not in the Antipodes.
It is a small shitty Antarctic Island off the coast … and the time there if you were would be 7:05 PM ..

Merry Christmas! Cold and overcast this morning in the Texas Hill Country. Husband and I have opened presents while Skyping with our kids in St.Louis, and eaten pancakes for breakfast (I forgot to add the blueberries). Now we are tucked under our lap blankets with a fresh pot of coffee share—and we each have a computer in our lap.

What a funny new world, huh, to so easily greet all of you around the world! I hope you have/had a lovely day. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to our hostess Stoaty, and her darling Uncle Badger, and the chickens and the cat(s), and the rest of the creatures in their corner of England.

We just opened presents, and a very satisfactory thing it was, too.

He bought me THREE computer games, which means he doesn’t wish to speak to me ever again. Or perhaps it’s because he also bought me a banjo strap and some stainless steel strings, and he’s hoping I’ll be too busy playing computer games to wander around the house picking the banjo.

Merry Christ-Mass, or as our Hispanic neighbors rejoice with rare Roman Catholic clarity….Feliz Navidad!

‘Tis a grand day to recall that one point where the Lord God of the Universe chose to give his only Son. A gift for all humankind, providing us all the opportunity to reconcile with our great, creator God….even crotchety ol’ kiwi trolls.

Witcher, Deus Ex and Skyrim.

I reckon he doesn’t want to see me for at least six months.

All the animals good food treats, but they won’t get their real presents until after Christmas dinner (which we have as a late evening meal).

Let’s face it, food is about the most exciting thing you can give most animals.

Merry Christmas Stoaty and Badger. Thanks for all the laughs and photoshops (and of course the spotted dicks) in 2011 and may 2012 bring you everything you wish for.

That reminds me, didn’t Bertie Wooster at one time take up something called a ” banjolele”?

I shudder at the mere name.

They swallow it so fast, how can they even taste it?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

And “God bless us, each and every one of us!”
Except the trolls… and most of my picks in the Dead Pool.

Chickens taste things carefully before they swallow, Redd. Which isn’t to say they’re discriminating. They’ll eat any small object, including (that I have observed) chunks of coal and beads of styrofoam. They scoop bits up and clack their beaks to roll it over their tongues, which makes an amusing little chattering sound.

Oh, dear, Mojo. Yes. That is just what it sounds like — the bastard child of a banjo and a ukulele. Size and tuning of a uke, body of a banjo. They were all the rage here. Still commonly available as a used item (and one or two still make them new).

See: Formby, George.

IOW, stoaty, you’re saying giant chickens could and would eat us? [shudder]

 


Comment from Argentium G. Tiger

Stoaty> Witcher, Deus Ex and Skyrim.

Ooooo, all of those look like fantastic choices!

> I reckon he doesn’t want to see me for at least six months.

Or he wants to keep you firmly anchored, so he can enjoy new creatively strung together curses as you hit the hard parts of the games. *hee*

Enjoy!

It is stinking hot 38 C here – and I’m down to my last bottle of Lindauer … travesty.

Merry Christmas Weasel and Badger–and minions who celebrate it–and particularly to the Troll, who is sounding almost human these days, long may it wave!

Mellow with half a bottle of champagne taking the edge off and the (very probably literally) divine Elin Manahan Thomas singing Handel and Bach into the middle of my head through headphones. while Her Staotliness kills aliens and Charlotte sleeps on the bed.

Later will come a little cognac, Purcell and Tallis.

Guess who got CDs for Christmas?

Badger <——————– happy

Wishing all minions the blessing of peace and contentment.

Merry Christmas from across the pond, over the mountains, over the river, over some more mountains, to the pond on the other side. I think that’s how I got here, anyway.

This Badger worked Christmas Eve, am working Christmas night, and have to work next weekend, too. I kept busy Christmas Eve, and added a few gray hairs to my pelt. You would think that people could stay sober ONE night a year! Still the red and blue LEDs of a Federal Signal ARJENT lightbar do look very Christmassy.

I’ve just heard that $4 billion worth of Patriot missiles has been resold to China labelled as ‘fireworks’ for $125 Billion by Israel.

“Frosty the Snowman
“Was Jesus Christ’s best friend;
“He stood there melting by the cross
“Until the very end!”

No, not mine, but I wish I’d written it. This one’s mine, to the tune of “Winter Wonderland”:

“Later on, we’ll perspire;
“‘Is that A/C? Turn it higher!’
“We drive and we grump
“O’er potholes and bumps —
“Sweating in a sticky swampy land!”

Merry Christmas to all and may your New Year be bright!

Oceania, why do you hate the Joos?

If anything, little Barry and his team of flying monkeys gift wrapped those things personally to China, kind of like that drone they gave Iran.

Who said I hate Jews? I certainly hate Muslims. In fact, I’m sure I hate everyone! I’m an equal opportunity discriminator – I discriminate indiscriminately.

I certainly hate the heat … I might find a meat chiller to sleep in tonight.

So, I always thought Hell was y’know, hot. I mean, If that ISNT your plan then I’d be interested on how to plan to breath in said meat chiller.
