Melly Clismouse

Oh, sure, it looks cute.

When the weather turned this Fall, a plague of cold mice descended on Badger House. Uncle B found them in the trap, roughly one rodent per day. Dead, if he was lucky. Otherwise, he had an unpleasant deal of mouse-dispatchin’ to do.

The Maternal B — his mum — bought him this festive holiday rodent to commemorate all his festive holiday rodent skull-smashing.

That’s not the good part. This is the good part. It’s the song he sings when you press his belly.

I’ll bet you a shiny new penny that’s We Wish You a Merry Christmas sung by a Chinese woman who doesn’t speak a word of English.

Melly Clistmas, minions!

The second line, in case you don’t know your WWYAMC, is “Now bring us some figgy pudding.”

We were so busy getting Christmas dinner together, we TOTALLY forgot about Christmas Eve dinner. No time to defrost anything or nuffink. So we stopped off and got Chinese to microwave later. So it’s all, like, related and stuff.

Thank you, McGoo! And a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all fellow minions!

Auntie and I are just about to get stuck into the vodka and an M.R. James ghost story which I snagged from TV the other day.

Booze? Turkey? Christmas Ghost stories? I’m glad I’m not Islamic Rage Boy!

The wife and I do PigFest every Clismouse eve, during which we have cocktails, eat nothing but horse do-overs (yum!) and watch all the episodes of Farty Towels (we have all the dialog pretty much memorized: “Basil, do you imagine in your wildest dreams that a girl like this would be interested in an aging, brilliantine stick-insect like you?” and “I didn’t start it.” “Yes you did. You invaded Poland.”).

Happy Festivus, everybody.

…And that second verse sounds much more like “O, bring us some figgy bottom” or, even worse, “O, bring us some figgy potty.”

“I didn’t start it.” “Yes you did. You invaded Poland.”

That sketch was brilliant.

Frankly, I prefer Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister more. Excellent they were!

Merry Christmas, y’all! Weasel couldn’t sleep, so we’re up and having coffee and a morning fire(!) before doing the tree.

Warm, overcast and windy here.

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And what was in those ships all three,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day?
And what was in those ships all three,
On Christmas Day in the morning?

The Virgin Mary and Christ were there,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
The Virgin Mary and Christ were there,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Pray, wither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Pray, wither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day in the morning?

O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the Angels in Heaven shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
And all the Angels in Heaven shall sing,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Then let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Then let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

So not only could He speak as soon as He was born (or is that only a Muslim belief?), He can navigate ships too!

A very merry Christmas to you all!

This is gonna be stupid, but my seven year old says Melly Clismas, too.

No, we didn’t adopt a Chinese baby, she has some speech issues due to hearing problems caused by fluid in her ear, (fixed now that she has tubes).

Anyway, she gets her r’s and l’s mixed up which makes for some crazy Kim Jong-il-like pronunciations.

Hope you had a “Melly Clismas” in Jolly Olde.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
