Day 499 of 365 More.

In this joyous holiday season I am reminded of one of my favorite carols. Please join me in singing along to that old classic by Mr. Nat King Cole.

O Festivus Pole, O Festivus Pole,
Your single beam delights us.
O Festivus Pole, O Festivus Pole,
Your single beam delights us.
No decorations and no tinsel.
Very high strength-to-weight ratio.
O Festivus Pole, O Festivus Pole.
Your single beam delights us.

O Festivus Pole, O Festivus Pole,
You give us so much pleasure.
O Festivus Pole, O Festivus Pole,
You give us so much pleasure.
Can hold a stripper with your might;
Spinning over stripper lights.
O Festivus Pole, O Festivus Pole.
You give us so much pleasure.

O Feiern Pole, O Feiern Pole.
Hat jemand hier Deutsch sprechen?
O Feiern Pole, O Feiern Pole.
Hat jemand hier Deutsch sprechen?
Ich könnte hier etwas schreiben.
Wer ist jemals zu übersetzen?
O Feiern Pole, O Feiern Pole.
Hat jemand hier Deutsch sprechen?

Happy Festivus, Everyone.

    I was driving down my street the otherday and… I kid you not… there was a pole with lights on it. Not the house… not the trees… the pole. I shed a tear. I mean… it’s got to be a festivus pole right?

    I challenge you to feats of strength!

    I guess it’s Festivus for the rest of us! So is this the pole installed for your Halloween party, or a shot from Baraoke?

    @Mikey aka DaSkinnyBlackMan: heh…. I don’t even want to talk about what happened at bareoke the other day.

    @Stephen Poff: they must be those new style commercial festivus celebrators. Everyone know you aren’t supposed to hang anything on the pole. Decorations are too distracting.

    @lrayholly: no, no, no… its a Nat King Cole classic. I swear.

    @DeHoll: its mine. as much as they love me there, even I can’t take pictures at the strip club. I bought it knowing that I’d reuse it for Festivus.

    Damn, I miss teaching in New York. Every classroom comes with a Festivus pole. Non-denominational, celebrate-all-winter-holidays equally, my butt. The city’s preference is clear.

    @marmal8: New York prefers festivus? Really? That’s weird.

    @spresogna: eh… maybe a little of both.

    you are quite obviously overdressed for a festivus celebration. (I’ll put those dollar bills where Mikey won’t 😉

    @Miss Emily goes bananas: there really weren’t any. But it made for a good pic, I thought.
