All I know is I wish the calendar went something like this

October - November - December - October - November - December - October - November - December.

Those are the months I like...

I don't blame you.

Cool temperatures and lovely fall weather
Thanksgiving holiday + dinner + vacation
Christmas holiday + dinner + vacation
End the cycle with a bash


Really, the only thing that would drive me mad would be Halloween. I'm not a fan, as I hate driving those nights because kids run around like blind idiots on PCP. Sorry, wearing a Batman costume doesn't mean you'll survive getting hit by my car. Dealing with THAT noise every 3 months would suck.

You are correct, the 12 days of Christmas, do in fact, precede Christmas day.

Nope, that's not right.

The Twelve Days of Christmas are the festive days beginning Christmas Day (25 December). This period is also known as Christmastide and Twelvetide. The Twelfth Night of Christmas is always on the evening of 5 January, but the Twelfth Day can either precede or follow the Twelfth Night according to which Christian tradition is followed.[1] Twelfth Night is followed by the Feast of the Epiphany on 6 January. In some traditions, the first day of Epiphany (6 January) and the twelfth day of Christmas overlap.[2]

I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony...

  • If I had one wish that I could wish this holiday season, it would be that all the children to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace.

  • If I had two wishes I could make this holiday season, the first would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing in the spirit of harmony and peace. And the second would be for 30 million dollars a month to be given to me, tax-free in a Swiss bank account.

  • You know, if I had three wishes I could make this holiday season, the first, of course, would be for all the children of the world to get together and sing, the second would be for the 30 million dollars every month to me, and the third would be for encompassing power over every living being in the entire universe.

  • And if I had four wishes that I could make this holiday season, the first would be the crap about the kids definitely, the second would be for the 30 million, the third would be for all the power, and the fourth would be to set aside one month each year to have an extended 31-day orgasm, to be brought out slowly by Rosanna Arquette and that model Paulina-somebody, I can't think of her name. Of course my lovely wife can come too and she's behind me one hundred percent here, I guarantee it. Wait a minute, maybe the sex thing should be the first wish, so if I made that the first wish, because it could all go boom tomorrow, then what do you got, y'know? No, no, the kids, the kids singing would be great, that would be nice. But wait a minute, who am I kidding? They're not going to be able to get all those kids together. I mean, the logistics of the thing is impossible, more trouble than it's worth! So -- we reorganize! Here we go. First, the sex thing. We go with that. Second, the money. No, we got with the power second, then the money. And then the kids. Oh wait, oh jeez, I forgot about revenge against my enemies! Okay, I need revenge against all my enemies, they should die like pigs in hell! That would be my fourth wish.

  • And, of course, my fifth wish would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace. Thank you everybody and Merry Christmas.

    Well, we still have our nins, Batmans, cutters, space captains, shanes, crestons, SMA's and even Verno's and Jerryks, so to hell with the birds in the trees. Merry Christmas.

    I'll take the beer though.

    Its freakin digital information, not analog. If the "data gets through perfectly", it is just as good as a cable where the signal gets through shittyl".

    But the comments are funny, and supposed to be! I love em!

    This HDMI cable features a Dielectric-Bias System that reduces distortion and 100% Perfect-Surface Silver conductors for improved signal clarity.

    The only thing they left out was the flux capacitor. It's sad that it's sold out though. I need to get in the marketing business and start selling some pure perfect coppertop mark AA energy holders for $200 each.
