Thank you very much

Posted by keithosaunders on January 27, 2018

Who remembers the musical Scrooge from 1970 starring Albert Finney?  There’s a scene, about 2/3 of the way through, where Scrooge, visiting the his future self, views his own funeral celebration.  A cast of thousands breaks into a song called Thank You Very Much, singing, dancing, and gala-banding down a London street.  Scrooge, of course, thinks the crowd is thanking him for years of service and philanthropy, where in reality they are thanking God for ridding them of a scoundrel.

This is how I envision America to be were Trump to die in office.  It wouldn’t be a day of shock, grief, or mourning, such as when J.F.K. was assassinated.  No, this would be abject relief, if not joy.   Something tells me that Melania would be leading the parade.

 

This song was nominated for an Academy Award.

The war on the war on Christmas

Starbucks

This is unbelievable.  People are up in arms because Starbucks came out with Christmas coffee cups without pictures of snowflakes or Santa.  REALLY?  The cups have the prerequisite red and green coloring.  What more do you need, baby Jesus drinking an egg nog latte?!  To tell you the truth I’m more offended that these cups get trotted out in early November. We haven’t even had our lousy Thanksgiving meal with all the overrated trimmings that go along with it. (There’s a reason we don’t eat stuffing and cranberry sauce year round)

I am not offended by the Christmas season and all the imagery and hooplah that comes along with it.  I likes me a Little Christmas Carol, Clydesdales tromping around a New England snowscape, and Norelco commercial with Santa riding the razor like a sled.  It’s good clean fun!  What I don’t need is pre-Halloween or Thanksgiving capitalistic Christmas hype.  And by the way, if we’re at War with Christmas then the months from January through October should be called The Christmas Armistice.  (tm)
