that's probably why a lot of us kids died of tuberculosis.

The House of Warrick and the House of Greenbriar got together the other evening (see post 12/11008) to share a few beers, meal, dreams, a gift from Sir Dayvd, and... share a few LAUGHS (Yes Lady Allwinky, the teeth gag was priceless!).
Sir Hook's gifts to me included The Best of BrainDoppings by George Carlin, Ass Blaster Hot sauce which comes in its own wooden outhouse, and a book titled Jew-Jitsu The Hebrew Hands of Fury (putting fear into the hearts of those who mess with the kosher kids!).
All great gifts that, needless to say, are sure to offer many hours of amusement; however, the greatest gift they gave us was the GIFT OF LAUGHTER. I commented that at one point I laughed so unexpectedly hard that I nearly spewed beer out of my nose. Now that's a great gift!
Milton Berle once said that Laughter is an instant vacation.
Like A Christmas Vacation? One of the funniest Christmas movies of all time? Which, by the way, shows how Christmas can be both stressful and funny:
Clark Griswold: Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.
So this Christmas do some things that really make you, your family, your friends, and complete strangers LAUGH. Put on your Depends Diapers and laugh till you pee your pants. Strap yourself in so you don't laugh yourself off your chair. Bring some tissues so that you can wipe away the tears when you laugh till you cry. And remember to breathe so you don't choke on your own spit and laughter.
And finally, pick a drink that's non-carbonated (eggnog or milk are good choices -- unless you're lactose intolerant).
And NO Candy canes. They are big no-no to eat while laughing. Trust me.
