No Xmas in U.S. this year: Santa on Fed's "No Fly" list.
Okay, that's just "News
" from the website of satiric rockers Bah and the Humbugs
, skewering Xmas since 1985. MP3s of the entirety of this year's CD Farhenheit 12/25
are available on the website
, or you can buy the CD for $10 and all ten sheckles go to the UN World Food Programme
. More tracks here
, including the "Jolly Roger the Xmas Pirate" series and "Free the Reindeer. " Great stuff for that awkward holiday family get-together, where the music won't offend but the cool lyrics
can keep you chuckling to yourself all night.

Twas the night before Xmas and all through the net,
The geeks would be googling the ascii character set;
Metafilter refreshed on their PCs with care,
In the hopes that their FPP soon would be there;
Then up in the blue there arose such a clatter,
Mathowie sprang up to see what's the matter;
When, what to my wondering eyes there should be,
The canonical list of "Twas" parodies.
