    Another funny christmas poem 12/16/06 07:48 AM




    Mistletoe Millie


    The whole family's gathered
    and Mistletoe Millie
    is kissing and smooching
    and acting all silly.
    She caught Grampie Zeke
    and kissed him on the cheek.
    She found Cousin Flynn
    and kissed him on the chin.
    She found Mr. Fips
    and kissed him on the lips!
    She ran up to me...

    but I figured it out
    I held up our dog
    which she kissed on the snout.
    She found it so gross
    that she fell on the floor.
    Guess she won't try
    to kiss me anymore.

    That's a good one.

    You're from South Africa? I used to idolize Gary Player. If I ever made it to SA, I'd go visit the Drakensburg plateau.

    I was chatting w/ Paulmack about the movie Dances With Wolves and the wolf named "Two Socks". Of course you know Hollywood. It took two wolves to play the part.

    Anyay Paul wrote a verse about Two Socks, so I write a seasonal one back at him....

    And Here it is!


    There once was a Woof, Mr. Two Socks.
    A close friend of Babe, Bunyan's Blue Ox.
    He's getting this year
    (You know what is near),
    A pair of white, ribbed nylon crew sox.


    I don't know, of course, but it is possible that this is the first Christmas verse involving a wolf, Paul Bumyan, and Christmas presents.

    The reference to Bunyan and Babe is American folk lore. Paul Bunyan was a giant logger and Babe was his blue ox.
    If you search for Bunyan, you can see a picture of him and Babe in the Wikipedia article.

    Remember this fun tune??

    All I Want For Christmas
    is My Two Front Teeth

    All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth,
    My two front teeth, my two front teeth.
    Gee, if I could only have my two front teeth,
    Then I could wish you "Merry Christmas."

    It seems so long since I could say,
    "Sister Susie sitting on a thistle."
    Gosh, oh gee, how happy I'd be
    If I could only whistle.

    All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth,
    My two front teeth, my two front teeth
    Gee, if I could only have my two front teeth,
    Then I could wish you "Merry Christmas."

    2 front teeth. It was new when I was a kid. All the popular, secular Christmas songs were new when I was a kid.

    Illustrating the six degrees from Kevin Bacon theory, one of my law school professors was the agent for Jose Feliciano.

    Jose, of course, is the Feliz Navidad man.

    Thanks all I am glad you enjoyed the poem.

    Kholmes yes the Drakensberg plateau is lovely but I would also recommend Table Mountain it is absolutely beautiful with and without cloud. When there is cloud cover it looks like a table with a cloth hence the name. The view as amazing. The sea looks motionless and you are standing above the clouds looking down. It is really something one needs to experience first hand.

    Paul I think everyone remembers that song. LOL

    Rockgor we have a saying here it goes "if not, why not" anything goes.
