This Baby – Steven Curtis Chapman.

The reason for the season….




We Wanted Bacon, Not Bagels, And If You Don’t Like It, You Deserve All The Scorn That Can Be Heaped Upon You…..And Coal In Your Christmas Stockings.

Perpetually offended, stupid and hypocritical PETA is at it again.

PETA has had enough of common phrases that “perpetuate violence toward animals.” The animal rights organization, which is formally called People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, took to Twitter on Tuesday, December 4, to share a list of such phrases that it would like to see replaced with more animal-friendly colloquialisms.

“Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it,” the tweet stated. “Here’s how to remove speciesism from your daily conversations.” Included with the tweet was a list of expressions PETA has deemed troublesome, and substitutes to use instead.

For example, instead of saying “Kill two birds with one stone,” PETA would prefer people use the phrase “Feed two birds with one scone.” Furthermore, if PETA had its way, the popular phrase “Bring home the bacon,” would be changed to “Bring home the bagels.”

According to PETA, here are some other sayings that need to be changed and what they need to be changed to:

Santa In A Parade And Lights On The Water!

The Cocoa Beach Christmas Parade is today!

The parade starts at 1:30 PM at the site of the old glass bank building and proceeds south on A1A. We have it on good authority that Santa (or one of his most able helpers) will be in the parade so it is always good to watch the parade with your friends and neighbors lest Santa thinks you are grinch-like and be put on the naughty list.

While Cocoa Beach has their parade in the day, later in the evening the annual Cocoa Beach Boat Parade which is sponsored by the Cocoa Beach Rotary Club.

Definitely one of the cooler events in the area, you don’t to live on the river or be a participant to watch this parade of boats “decked out” in festive lights.

Merry Christmas Polka – Jim Reeves.

One of the things that we like to highlight in our “Christmas Music Extravaganza” is the diversity of music this time of year.

So we bring you the song “Merry Christmas Polka.”

It is not our favorite style of music, but it is hard not to tap your feet to it.

Fun stuff.



Friday Two Fer! Benny Goodman, Peggy Lee And The Andrew Sisters.

We went looking for Christmas songs like we do every day and decided to go with music from the Big Band Era.

We came upon Benny Goodman with Peggy Lee performing “Winter Weather” and The Andrew Sisters kickin’ it with “Winter Wonderland.”

But then we hit a snag. We couldn’t decide which one we like the best for a Friday so we decided to have a “Two Fer Friday” for Christmas music.

(It is the season for giving, you know.)

Enjoy!

The Christmas Light Corollary To Murphy’s Law.

We have discovered the Christmas Light Corollary to Murphy’s Law.

Murphy’s law is a popular adage that states that “things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance,” or more commonly, “whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.” A number of variants on the rule have been formulated, as have several corollaries.

Our corollary: When searching for a burned out bulb in a string of lights, the burned out bulb is always closer to the end that you did not start on.

Of course, that ties a little bit into the “50-50-90 rule” which states that any time you have a 50%-50% choice, 90% of the time you choose the wrong one.



“Merry Christmas Darling” – The Carpenters.

Karen Carpenter was lost to this world far too early at the age of 32 because of eating disorders that were barely understood by experts at the time.

Still, she and her brother Richard left us many unforgettable songs including this overly sappy, played too often and yet still wonderful song.





And Now Veggie Tales Are “Racist.”

According to Wikipedia, Veggie Tales is:

VeggieTales is an American series of children’s computer animated television shows, videos, and feature films featuring anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables in stories conveying moral themes based on Christian culture. The show is aimed at children aged three to eight. The episodes frequently retell and re-create Bible stories anachronistically reframed and include humorous references to pop culture.

Yet according to The College Fix, the cartoons were labeled as “racist” in a recently held forum at Cal State San Marcos.

These are some of the arguments made by students at a “Whiteness Forum” held at Cal State San Marcos on Thursday that aimed to take a “critical look at whiteness,” according to organizers.

The two-hour event took place in a large multipurpose room, with more than a dozen poster board projects lined up in a circle around the room for viewers to review.

The forum is a result of Professor Dreama Moon’s Communications 454 class titled “The Communication of Whiteness,” with the annual event serving as a showcase of students’ final projects for the class.
