Greetings, my friends. The Princess Consort stepping mikeside to entertain you whilst my lovely and talented bride, known to all as The Preppy Princess, continues her feverish preparations for a weekend of family trials visits.
Our topic this go-round will be wretched holiday excess and people who just don’t “get it” when they launch into traditional Christmas carols. Butchering lyrics seems to be a past-time for many well-intentioned and leather-lunged singers. In the interest of brevity I’ll direct you to the always informative Snopes.com in general and this page in particular. Reading these mangled lyrics will bring tears to your eyes. Likely because you are laughing so hard. I mean, really, we’ve all missed a lyric or two in our day. This is my holiday gift to you: Use these lyrics the next time someone decides to gather everyone around the old piano for a carol sing-along.
We, as Americans, have always celebrated being bigger, brighter, louder and more obnoxious than any other society. I’m not saying that’s negative. In fact, at times that attitude leads to a lot of fun. It also unleashes the creative demon in some people. And that, as you will see in the following video, can be.. um.. well.. hmmm.
I’ll be brief tonight because you have better things to do than to spend time with me. We are sending you all our very best wishes this holiday season. You each have given us a very precious gift: Your friendship. We value that more than we can say. Have a wonderful holiday season.
Now please enjoy the classic musical stylings of Bing Crosby and David Bowie as they entertain you with “The Little Drummer Boy”. Good night, everyone.
