Your RDA of Irony

Season’s Cliches

For those of you who care: MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Yes, I do observe Christmas–if only as a safety precaution. Look, the Cossacks want to celebrate with us…or on us.

Some of you may be curious as to why my ancestors turned down Christianity when it was an IPO. To be honest, it was a question of marketing. We really didn’t need a “new and improved monotheism” when we still were under the original warranty. Furthermore, Jesus was not really addressing our major problem. It was charming that He could cure lepers but what was He doing about the Romans? The Judeans wanted an exterminator, not a carpenter.

Finally and unforgivably, there was that problem with catering. What is the point of fish and loaves without cream cheese? If you going to perform a miracle, do it right!

Nonetheless, Merry Christmas.

    It was creamed pickled herring in the first place! That’s why it fed 5,000. It was mostly onions.

    Can’t say as I blame your ancestors. In real time, healing one leper is a miracle. Healing ALL the lepers would’ve done some good. Probably looked like Macabeean 3-Card Monty to them.

    Driving the demons into the swine herd? Big deal! And what’s a herd of swine doing there in the first place?

    Merry, Merry, Eugene! Thanks for a year of mirth and fascinating information!
