You better watch out.

Good thing Santa Claus got entrenched before the U.S. really started politicizing EVERYTHING. For starters we’d have conservatives questioning Santa’s immigration status and socialist giveaways, and some liberals complaining about his carbon footprint and potential abuse of reindeer.

The winning Christmas tweet of the year comes from Bette Midler: “Happy holidays to all: Here is my recipe for dairy-free, sugar-free, vegan eggnog: Bourbon.”

Just saw “The Big Short”, which has to be a strong contender for “Best Picture” along with a lot of other awards. But if you’ve always watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” and felt sympathy for Mr. Potter, then it’s also the feel-good movie of the season.

And then there’s the original “Miracle on 34th Street”, to my mind the best Christmas movie ever, even with the ridiculous colorization. Any other nominees? ‪#‎IbelieveIbelieve‬

So THIS is a major on-line headline on Christmas: “Ashton Kutcher was seen exiting the Ancient Therapy Thai massage parlor in Los Angeles last week, but there is no evidence of improper behavior, multiple outlets reported. Kutcher is married to Mila Kunis.” ‪#‎beammeupScottietheresnointelligentlifeonthisplanet‬

Serena Williams won her fourth female AP athlete of the year. Congrats to Serena on another great year. But isn’t it just possible she’s the only female athlete many voters know.

Not sure exactly when the tradition started, but kind of hard to imagine in these times that millions of over-protective parents cheerfully put their little children on a bearded foreign stranger’s lap and tell the kids to ask him for presents.

A British astronaut apparently tried to call home and dialed a wrong number. Will be interesting to see how much his mobile phone company charged him for the mistake.

 

Jeb Bush has abandoned his efforts to trademark “Jeb!” So is he just going to go with the more direct “Loser!”?

What’s harder to believe.  72 degree weather in New York on Christmas Day? Or this headline “Redskins poised to lock up NFC East on Saturday night?

Not sure exactly when the tradition started, but kind of hard to imagine in these times that millions of over-protective parents cheerfully put their little children on a bearded foreign stranger’s lap and tell the kids to ask him for presents.

In early returns of 2016 NBA All-Star voting, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant has 719,235 votes, not only leading with all players, but with almost as many votes as Stephen Curry and LeBron James put together.

Sounds like the people voting for the All-Stars are the same ones answering GOP Presidential pollsters.

What’s more unbelievable? 72 degree weather in New York on Christmas Day? Or this headline “Redskins poised to lock up NFC East on Saturday night?

 

Seriously for a change, and to all my readers and friends. Hope you had a Merry Christmas or happy whatever you celebrate. Whether you are part of the choir I preach to, or whether I am one of your few commie-pinko friends, whether I have met you in real life or only in cyber-space, I am grateful for all of you.
(well, most of the time anyway. Now back to snark.🙂

Starting with the voodoo cat.   And her non-denominational humbug.
