The Grumpy Old Man [userpic]
What planet YOU on, sparky?

I was watching Dora the Explorer's Christmas special and was actually annoyed to see evergreens surrounding you-know-who's workshop.

This reminded me of the time, only a few weeks ago, where we brought our kids to the mall to have them photographed with an impersonator and, among the various Christmas-related decorations about the studio, there was a family of stuffed penguins. Penguins. Sheesh.

It's enough to make me a grumpy old man OH WAIT I ALREADY AM!

David's nephew, in Oz (age 3), was apparently very shocked and dismayed on Christmas Day when it didn't snow. TV had conditioned him to believe Christmas is always white. David's sister gently explained about Aussie Xmas and the beach and barbeques.

I can commiserate. I grew up on Long Island where 80% of Christmases were rainy.

The penguins planted the evergreens.

I always knew there was something suspicious about penguins. No animal can be that cute without being up to no good.
