Candy Canes and Lumps of Coal

with 5 comments

With Christmas nearly approaching, I thought it was time to award some candy canes for those on Nate’s nice list and lumps of coals for those on Nate’s naughty list.

-A candy cane for President Bush for remembering the true meaning of the season by pardoning Isaac Toussie who was guilty of mortgage fraud. Is that even a crime anymore?

-A lump of coal for the UAW who this week added Toyota to the list of victims to their greed and excessive contracts this year.

-A candy cane to KBR for providing our troops with the things they need.

-A lump of coal to The Salvation Army. I still want my gold coins back.

-A candy cane for Saddleback Mountain Church founder Rick Warren for his love of gay people despite not wanting them to get married and for his extensive collection of original Broadway cast recordings.

-A lump of coal to the Global Warming alarmists. I’m freezing my butt off in Chicago and I can only assume its because we’ve cut carbon emissions too much.

-A candy cane for Martin Scorsese whose Taxi Driver is a Christmas tradition at my house.

-A lump of coal to Barrack Obama who announced he was going to use Abraham Lincoln’s Bible for his inauguration. OK, as a secret Muslim I know he doesn’t have his own, but couldn’t he pick a President who didn’t drive us into the only Civil War this country has had…yet?

-A candy cane to our non-terrorist Muslim readers. For those of you who renounce terrorism I wish to extend the olive branch by wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

-A candy cane to the readers of this blog. The boycotts, the political movement, and the return to Conservative values would not be possible without you all.

  1. How about a lump of coal for the brother-in-law who thought I would like a pocket protector for Christmas! For his only sister, Nate’s present was a rooster paper towel holder. My son David received a mechanical aquarium with hot pink and purple fish! He’s wondering what 8 year old girl left it behind in self storage. Bah Humbug to you Nate!

  2. A candy cane to you too, Nate, and thank you for supporting my Jackie Brown boycott. Say, does your blog also die during the holiday season? The number of hits to my blog has dropped dramatically. Why do we even post? Merry Christmas!

Beat in egg yolk & extracts. In separate bowl combine flour, salt & baking soda. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover & refrigerate for 3 hours or until easy to handle. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough & cut with ciooke cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased ciooke sheet. Bake 275 for 8-10 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes & remove to wire rack to cool.
