Memes for a Monday

Yes I know it isn’t the alternate Monday but I got this bag of goodies with best before date of December 25 so it’s now or wait until next year. To be frank with you, yah yah I know “don’t call me Frank!”, if I put them away now I probably won’t find them next year until its too late. So bear with me.

The panic buying would almost have you believe there was a pandemic going on!!

For some reason that lovely carol (only kidding!) The Little Drummer Boy is getting it this year. Unfortunately it’s also getting lots of replays – but not in our house!

It’s never been the same for me since Grace Jones sang it on PeeWee’s Christmas Special.

It could be worse – it could be David Bowie singing it with Bing Crosby. Do you believe, as I do, that Bing had no idea who the hell he was singing with?

And this late arrival from my old (as in high school years) friend Ginny:

It was always difficult trying to sell those Lords of Misrule a new number for their tired old act!

Continuing on with the myths of Christmas, another lovely legend is debunked.

Or if there is and it’s a Hilton there will be an exorbitant charge.

Once seen it cannot be unseen.

The Flintstones were about as historically accurate as the PBS series on the Tudors.

And one more hit and then like the kid with the drum, I’m outta here!

The word for December 21st is:
Drum /drəm/: [1. noun 2. verb]
1.1 A percussion instrument sounded by being struck with sticks or the hands, typically cylindrical, barrel-shaped, or bowl-shaped, with a taut membrane over one or both ends.
1.2 A cylindrical container or receptacle.
1.3 Archaic: an evening or afternoon tea party of a kind that was popular in the late 18th and early 19th century.
2.1 To play a drum of drums.
2.2 To beat (the fingers, feet, etc.) repeatedly on a surface, especially as a sign of impatience or annoyance.
Middle English: from Middle Dutch or Low German tromme, of imitative origin.
And not once does it indicate the sound they are imitating is “rum pum pum”.
