I saw this, and sniggered for 30 seconds. My partner had to patiently explain to me that it wasn’t actually funny. I don’t care. The world must know.
Secretly, snowmen are the reason for the season. They know the truth. Sure, there’s lip-service made to the messiah, but they know who the TRUE dark masters of Christmas are.
Yeah, funnier in my head. Oh well. The cookie man is also not particularly amused. “Try again,” says the cookie man. “And…please don’t eat me.”
I can understand why a cookie might be a bitÂ ambivalentÂ about the holiday season. I mean, sure, you get to see Santa, but it’s the last thing you ever see. And that elf can really stuff ’em down. How many of his gingery brethren have fallen victim to this dark winter night? And how many are yet to fall?
And then there’s the Christmas ornament that can’t quite make up its mind. Or maybe it’s celebrating the time of year when the christmas lights go from being up unforgivably late to being up unfashionably early. Or maybe someone just thought this was a good idea, and no-one said “no…no, don’t.”
Patriotic Santa gives you a choice–you can either singÂ o Tannenbaum or the National Anthem. Which will YOU choose?
Really? Huh. Well, okay, but you’ll make Thomas Jefferson cry.
1998: The year Freedom Rang. It was also the year Uncle Sam was sick and Santa had to take over the 4th of July. In hindsight, a pretty damn strange year. The fireworks scared hell out of the reindeer.
Reason for the Season snowglobe: Goodwill at Oak Hill. Sad Sad Cookie from Goodwill on Parmer near I35. Merry 4th from 2222 and Lamar Goodwill, Austin.

The real “reason for the season” is celebrating Rod Serling’s birthday, you know.
