One more sleep

…until Christmas.

So, in anticipation of (or rather, it being already) the fabled night before Christmas, here’s a new (read: from 1992) twist on “‘Twas the night before Christmas”.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and Santa’s a wreck…
How to live in a world that’s politically correct?
His workers no longer would answer to “Elves”,
“Vertically Challenged” they were calling themselves.

And labor conditions at the north pole
Were alleged by the union to stifle the soul.
Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety,
Released to the wilds by the Humane Society.

And equal employment had made it quite clear
That Santa had better not use just reindeer.
So Dancer and Donner, Comet and Cupid,
Were replaced with 4 pigs, and you know that looked stupid!

[Seeing as it’s 15 verses in length, click to read more]

Regarding the last verse, I would add that the perfect gift of peace is through the Lord of Christmas. Otherwise, I think it’s rather amusing.

Or, if you prefer, there’s “An Intellectual Night Before Christmas”. Such a long read, but also amusing due to its sheer long-windedness and pedanticity.

See y’all tomorrow, and (try to) have a merry Christmas Eve!
