Dear Lord. It's like looking in a mirror. That my mom is looking in. To see the tree.

The horror.

You should be fucking smacked for posting such shit.

That was completely retarded, but I liked it. Thank you.

That is my stepmother. Exactly. Well, replace the red hair with blonde and the northeastern accent with one from Baltimore, hun, and he has captured her exactly. God, I fucking love that woman.

Joyfully that isn't my stepmother, and it was rather lame. The character was mildly interesting, but the story/plot/? was painfully bad.

Oh God, and the Baileys...the Baileys! I am homesick for the home sick!

Sir BoBoMonkey Pooflinger Esquire III, I submit that you do not truly know joy at all until you spend a Christmas Eve around my stepmother's tree, drunk on Baileys and admiring her collection of holiday-themed sweaters. The best part? Drink enough Irish Cream and the sweaters actually become admirable.

Is there some level that the video is funny on that I'm missing?

It would have been better if they'd never shown the tree.

LeeJay, you are correct. I do not truly know joy. I'll trade you that Bailey's and a holiday-themed sweater for a Bud Light, green bean casserole, and a drunkle's racist jokes though.

SBBMPFE, III - why trade when you can have it all? Christmas at stepmom's house, y'all!

It would have been better if they'd never shown the tree, or if they'd "acquired" the tree in some interesting way, or if they'd had an entire family of "Stepmothers", or if they'd shortened it by 75%, or if they'd have put more thought into it and developed it beyond the man in drag with the day in the life of a Christmas tree.

LeeJay, I understand you darling. I lost it on the Baileys line, too.

It's about the editing, people. That was post-Thanksgiving right up until about December 26 distilled into three minutes of bad wig glory and speaking as a woman adrift from many friends and family this holiday season I, for one, am grateful for this post.

Now pick that shit up!

Hactar, I think the level you might be missing is not having grown up with an entire army of this woman.

I was hoping that the tree would end up being made out of severed arms, or something interesting like that. But it wasn't.

That is all I have to say about this video.

I will! Drop me a line and introduce yourself, stranger!

You have to understand, this is lame unless this is your mother. Then it is brilliant, brilliant and relieving because you finally know that you are not alone.

You are not alone.

That was Carrot Top, right?

holy crap! There are other people out there like my mother????

schroedinger is right. If this is your mother, watching that video is more valuable than therapy.

I wish I had a den. Why don't we have dens in the UK?

What is a den anyway?

While we are posting awful youtube videos, here is the Star Spangled Banner played on an unorthodox 'instrument'.
