Hey there, bunky.
You say that you tuned in to your favorite morning radio show and found that it had just been replaced by Don Imus?
And when you went to watch the Dr. Who Christmas special, it was being picketed by a rabid Christian who had apparently confused the Doctor with Jesus?
And then you held open a door for a lady and wished her "Happy Holidays", and she jabbed you in the chest and snapped "This is Christmas and people like you just don't know what that's supposed to mean anymore!"
And you say you got all dressed up as Santa and went to deliver some presents to a children's party and some drug-dealers took a shot at you?
Is that what's on your mind, bunky?
Well put your head down low and take a run at a brick wall, with that dignity and fortitude that says you'll never give up, never give up, never give up that old holiday spirit, no matter who just stole your routine. So this is the old Rational Ranter saying Merry Christmas, and God bless you Eddie Lawrence, wherever you are.
