Merry Christmas, leave the plate

update: Now that I’m done wrapping presents, nibbling on carrots and arranging cookie crumbs on a plate so as to give the impression of having been dropped by a 300-pound intruder, I’m faced with the eternal holiday question… Die Hard or A Christmas Carol.

    Merry Christmas Mark. You do good work, have a delightful family, and spread good stuff on those around you.

    May your stocking be stuffed beyond repair.

    I like Mixed Nuts. One of my fav xmas movies. Though Elf is a close second…and Miracle on 34th St – the original.

    I would have killed myself long ago, if not for this site. Thank you, and merry Christmas.

    It never occurred to me to kill myself until I visited this site.

    Still haven’t seen Die Hard. Guess I need to watch it someday.

    My new favorite Christmas movie is this flash mob (despite whatever PR stunt motivations goaded its production):

    Funny, this site only makes me want to kill other people. Merry Christmas.

    Just curious. Am I the only underwear model who reads this site?

    My daughter left a giant butter cream frosted cake for Santa this year, and I warned her that he might eat it all and have a heart attack, but she didn’t care. I was half tempted to dress up like a dead Santa on Christmas morning, clutching my heart.

    What American kid doesn’t know what she wants for Christmas? Are you raising some kind of Communist operative?

    Mark is dead.
    It is being reported (AA.com)that Mark had picked up a female hitchhiker on his way to visit friends. The woman became so excited when she realized who had picked her up that she threw her arms around Mark and caused him to lose control of the car. Both Mark and his passenger were killed when the car swerved off the road and hit a stone fence. And here’s where the story takes a turn toward the ludicrous—Mark was decapitated in the accident and the trauma to his head was so severe that even his dental records were useless in identifying the victim.
    Not wanting to lose potential puppet show sales, Dreamland executives have suppressed the story of Mark’s death and brought in a lookalike to replace him.
    Mourn or not to mourn, that is the question.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if that’s what 2011 has in store for me, Dragon. And, yes, I’m raising a Communist operative. (We have no TV, and we don’t allow Barbie dolls.)

    Maybe she needs a copy of “What is the What” for Christmas.
