Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

12/09/2005: How Not to *Win Friends and Influence People...*

of all Faiths and Persuasions this holiday season:

"...I was planning to write something about loving this time of year, because it’s when we as a nation come together and show generosity and good will towards men no matter what our religious or cultural differences. It’s a theme that plays throughout all the holidays – from Christmas to Kwanzaa to Chanukah to Festivus. But it goes beyond that. Even for those of us with an undefined faith or no faith, you can’t help but be nice, or maybe help out a homeless person by bringing him some food and a hot drink.

That’s what “Happy Holidays” is all about. It is not just about tolerance for everyone’s religion or lack of religion, but it is highlighting that no matter what you believe, it is the season of giving.

But apparently if I want to take part in that, or any entity does, by saying “Happy Holidays,” it’s tough luck for us, because ‘tis the season for the Christian Majority.

So, instead of saying Happy Holidays this year, I’m just going to say “Go F* *k Yourself!” Screw taking part in the season’s spirit, because apparently I’m not welcome. So enjoy your CHRISTMAS TREES on my public property, and your CHRISTMAS sales at stores that used to try to reach out to me, and CHRISTMAS cards from politicians, and the rest of the season that apparently only belongs to you. Me? As a member of the “worst element” of this “overwhelmingly Christian country,” I’m going to act my part and go kick a homeless person, maybe take candy from a baby, and quite possibly walk an old person into the middle of heavy traffic and leave them there.

Yes, indeed, Go F* *k Yourself, All, and to All a Good Night!

-- Eric Schmeltzer (Huffington).

Anyone got any Nog? I think I need a strong one after that. *smile*
