Happy Festivus, For All the Rest of Us

With each passing year of the Bush Administration the relevance of the "Airing of Grievances" grows more conspicuous. Perhaps next year we can file Impeachment under "Feats of Strength"? Or would that just be another Festivus Miracle? More Festivus here and here.

PS. I had a brainstorm last night after about three mugs of Safeway instant coffee spiked with Cointreau (one does what one can with what one has on hand)... Festivus as High Holiday and/or Bacchanal in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Anyone? Anyone?

Don't forget that there's now a company selling Festivus poles! They have a very high strength to weight ratio, perfect for surviving accidental impact during feats of strength.

I think the Festivus Stripper Pole is an idea whose time has come.

Your Newtonmas card got returned to me as undeliverable. The many gods clearly want you celebrating Festivus instead!!! (Or I spazzed and got your address wrong). I wonder which seems more likely..

A likely story! Although, I suppose, it is possible that some War in Heaven is brewing between the various Pastafarian minions and the witchy alchemical forces Newton ministered to. But surely Festivus can shelter us all 'neath its ample Bacchanalian bosom.
