Not-so-Jolly Holly

Okay, here's one for ya . . .

I was listening to some Christmas Music the other day. I like to do that this time of year.

And, three glaring realizations suddenly occurred to me -

1. Justin Beiber shouldn't sing . . . anything. (Oh, my bad, that was just the Chipmunks. Oops.)

2. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY needs a Platinum Mine for Christmas. It's just too ballsy asking for something that complicated, IMHO.


3. Burl Ives is a bossy old dude. Not only does he spend the entirety of his signature Christmas tune practically commanding the listener to have a Holly Jolly Christmas (whatever the heck that is), but then just in case you missed it, he actually says "and in case you didn't hear" and proceeds to repeat his orders. Lucy Van Pelt, you might have some competition on the "Bossy Christmas Personality" ballot this year.

I'm just sayin', is all.
