Holiday Wishes

Well, it’s the holiday season, and we all know what that means. Bringing dead evergreens inside the house so as to cure you of the ills of not having fire hazards in your home. In the spirit of remembering the destitute, a blizzard of gifts so excessive it threatens to bury the random evergreen. In the spirit of remembering the hungry, a meal so enormous it can feed a small country. Credit card bills so giant they can fund said small country. That once a year feeling of genuine warmth that can only be generated by spending time with loved ones, with whom you share the time honored tradition of renewing grievances accumulated across the years. Old socks filled with random doodads. And of course, a fat jolly old man with a massive toy factory at the North Pole, staffed by unpaid laborer elves who work year round to make toys for all the world’s children. The fat jolly old man operates what is apparently the most advanced surveillance state on earth as he endeavors to discover which children are naughty and which are nice. He rewards the nice ones by breaking and entering their homes. Given the time allotted for the task and the number of children in the world, apparently the amazing fat burglar manages to accomplish his fun felonies at an astonishing rate of 80,000+ homes per second, every second, without rest or bathroom breaks. He manages this partly due to the help of what are apparently mutant freak reindeer which have discovered anti-gravity.

In the spirit of this wondrous season, I have a few gifts for some lucky Gang Green Nation members and others. I hope you like them.
