APPLAUSE! ============================================================================= 'Twas the Night After Christmas By Jeff Foxworthy 'Twas the night after Christmas and all through the trailer, The beer had gone flat and the pizza was staler. The tube socks hung empty, no candies or toys And I was camped out on my old Lay-Z-Boy. The kids they weren't talking to me or my wife, The worst Christmas they said they had had in their lives. My wife couldn't argue and neither could I, so I watched TV and my wife, she just cried. When out in the yard the dog started barkin', I stood up and looked and saw old Sheriff Larkin. He yelled, "Roy I am sworn to uphold the laws And I got a complaint here from a feller named Claus." I said, "Claus, I don't know nobody named Claus, And you ain't taking me in without probable cause." Then the Sheriff he said, "The man was shot at last night." I said, "That might have been me, just what does he look like." The Sheriff replied, "Well he's a jolly old feller, with a big beer gut belly, that shakes when he laughs like a bowl full of jelly. He sports a long beard, and a nose like a cherry." I said, "Sheriff that sounds like my wife's sister Sherri." "It's no time for jokes Roy" the Sheriff he said." The man I'm describing in dressed all in red. I'm here for the truth now, it's time to come clean. Tell me what you've done, tell me what you've seen." Well I started to lie then I thought what the hell, It wouldn't be the first time that I spent New Years in jail. I said, "Sheriff it happened last night about ten, And I thought that my wife had been drinking again." When she walked in from work she was as white as a ghost. I thought maybe she had seen one of them UFO's. But she said that a bunch of deer had just flown over her head, And stopped on the roof of our good neighbor Red. Well I ran outside to look and the sight made me shudder, A freezer full of venison standing right on Red's gutter. Well my hands were a shakin' as I grabbed my gun, When outta Red's chimney this feller did run. And slung on his back was this bag over flowin'. I thought he stolen Red's stuff while old Red was out bowlin'. So I yelled, "Drop fat boy, hands in the air!" But he went about his business like he hadn't a care. So I popped a warning shot over his head. Well he dropped that bag and he jumped in that sled. And as he flew off I heard him extort, "That's assault with intent Roy, I'll see ya in court!" Find this and a whole lot more at the newly-renovated Djurkwhad's House O' Stuff. http://www.angelfire.com/ca2/dhos ============================================================================= APPLAUSE!

APPLAUSE! ============================================================================= "Al Bundy's Christmas Eve", from the TV series "Married...With Children" 'Twas the night before Christmas, And all through the house, No food was a-stirrin', Not even a mouse. Stockings were hung round Dad's neck like a tie, Along with a note that said, "Presents or die." Children were plotting All night in their beds, While the wife's constant whining Was splitting his head. But daddy had money This year in the bank, Then they closed up early, And now dad's in a tank. All of a sudden, Santa appeared, A sneer on his face, Booze in his beard. "Santa," I said, As he laughed merrily, "You do so much for others, Do something for me." "Bundy," he said, "You only sell shoes, Your son is a sneak thief, Your daughter's a floose." "Ho ho," Santa said, "Should I mention your wife? Her hair's like an A-bomb, Her nails like a knife." He climbs up the chimney, That fat piece of dung, He mooned me two times, He stuck out his tongue. I heard him exclaim, As he broke wind with glee, "You're married with children, You'll never be free." ============================================================================= APPLAUSE!

I know you've been naughty, but have you been nice? That's only Santa's business, He's making his list and checking it twice, Holy BLEEP it's Christmas! HAMSTERS SING! Santa comes just once a year, Just like you wet, that's what we hear, He's got a soft spot for reindeer, 'specially Rudolph's derierre! SANTA SINGS! Hey, knock it off fellas, it's a holiday, Go on, get Santa a big kiss, You can play hide the hamster on a one-horse sleigh, Holy BLEEP it's Christmas! Santa: Hey, what happened to my lyric sheet? Anyone seen my lyrics? Hamsters: Heck, we don't need no lyric sheets, Red! We know our parts by heart! Right fellas? Yea, sure! I know my parts alright! Santa: Well, that's great, guys. I love Christmas songs. HAMSTERS SING! Santa tried reaching up a neighbor's blouse, After drinking all the egg nog, (IS THAT SO?)

Til' we got our little hamsters a different tune, Holy BLEEP it's Christmas! SANTA SINGS! Santa just comes once a year, Up the chimney, then he'll disappear, HAMSTERS SING! He's gonna look out for Mr. Gear, And start that little deer in the rear! SANTA SINGS! Roast nuts chesting on an open fire, Santa's tongue stuck to the doorknob, (what?) His balls got fondled by a caroling choir, While the person gave him a hic... (WHAT?) The sleigh came down and took him away, The whole damn crowd was dismissed, ALL SING! Cause its time to be jolly at this time of the year, Holy BLEEP it's Christmas! Holy BLEEP! Holy BLEEP it's Christmas! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!

APPLAUSE! ============================================================================= "Christmas Rapping", by The Waitresses BAH, HUMBUG! Well, that's too strong, 'cause this is my favorite holiday But all this year's been a busy wreck; don't think I have the energy. Spreadin' my already-mad rush just 'cause it's "'tis the season" The perfect gift for me would be completions in the actions left from Last year, ski shop, encounter most interesting Had his number but never the time; most of anyone'd pass along those lines So deck those halls and trim those trees, raise up cups of Christmas cheer I just need to catch my breath; Christmas by myself this year. Calendar picture's frozen landscape chills this room for twenty-four days Evergreens, sparkling snow...get this winter over with! Flash back to springtime, saw him again; would've been good to go for lunch Couldn't agree when we're both free; we tried, we said we'd keep in touch Didn't, of course, 'till summertime; out to the beach to his boat; could I join him? No, this time it was me sunburned in the third degree. Now the calendar's just one page and, of course, I am excited Tonight's the night I set my mind not to do too much about it. Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, But I think I'll miss this one this year Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, But I think I'll miss this one this year Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, But I think I'll miss this one this year Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, But I think I'll miss this one this year The A & P has provided me with the world's smallest turkey Already in the oven, nice and hot...oh, damn! Guess what _I_ forgot? So on with the boots back out in the snow to the only all-night grocery When what with my wandering eyes should appear? No line, it's that guy I've been chasing all year! "Spendin' this one alone," he says, "need a break; this year's been crazy." I said, "Me, too, but why are you...you mean YOU forgot cranberries, too?!?" Then, suddenly, we laughed and laughed; caught on to what was happening That Christmas magic brought this tale to a very happy ending. Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Couldn't miss this one this year Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Couldn't miss this one this year Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Couldn't miss this one this year Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Couldn't miss this one this year....

Merry Christmas, you suckers, and a Happy New Year! Merry Christmas, you suckers; you blurry-eyed lot You'll never get rid of that headache you've got But I hope you'll feel splendid; you certainly should With your stomach distended with turkey and "pud" Merry Christmas, you suckers; jump into your car Roar off to your neighbors to "sink a few jars" Though your vision is doubled, just keep smiling through There are others in trouble a lot worse than you Beyond any question Acute indigestion Will plague you and make you unwell You won't take the warning; You'll wake up each morning Undoubtedly feeling like hell But, stick to it, suckers; go swallow a pill For this is the season of peace and good will While we patiently wait for that nuclear blast....
