 "Think globally, act idiotically." ~ Michael Dobo


        Reasons why Santa is really a woman, like Pope Joan…

  - Men can't pack a bag.

  - Men would rather be dead than caught wearing red velvet.

  - Men would feel their masculinity is threatened having to be seen with all those elves.

  - Men don't answer their mail.

  - Men would refuse to have their paunch described even in jest as a "bowlful of jelly."

  - Men aren't interested in stockings unless somebody's wearing them.

  - The "HoHoHo" thing would seriously inhibit their ability to pick up women.

-       Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a commitment.

     "In the one of the earliest documented uses of irony in Western Europe, the first Christian martyr St. Stephen, after being stoned to death, became the patron saint of stonemasons and headaches." ~ Phil's Phunny Phacts


        "Elf Pick-up Lines" from Bill Coombs:

        Nice view from down here! Has anyone ever told you, you have beautiful knees? You'd look great in a Raggedy Ann wig. I'm a magical being. Take off your bra. That's quite a set of ornaments you've got there. We don't see many "happenin' ladies" north of the Arctic Circle.

        Just because a guy wears tights and pointy slippers doesn't mean he's gay. I taught Santa everything he knows and I can get you off the naughty list! Hey babe, I'm free on Christmas Eve and I've got the keys to the sleigh tonight.

        Sure I used to be a lawn ornament for Brad Pitt, but now I have certain needs that can't be satisfied by working on toys. I get a thimbleful of tequila in me and I turn into a wild man; and you know what they say about guys with big ears -- not everything about me is tiny!  I'm not Elmo, but don't stop tickling.

         "Whoever called it necking was a poor judge of anatomy. " ~ Groucho Marx   


        A real lonely midget named Ray,

        Was desperate in the worst way,

        Found a doll on the shelf,

        And he pleasured himself;

        There was shrimp on the Barbie that day.

  "Charles Dickens' character 'Tiny Tim' was originally called 'Small Sam'." ~ Phil's Phunny Phacts


        We saw a delightful performance of "A Christmas Carol" by the Independent Shakespeare Company's David Melville as Dickens himself at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, and you can catch the last 2 shows by calling 818.710.6306 and saying "Tiny Phil sent you", but the local KPCC (89.3 FM) broadcast of the Antaeus Company's "A Tale Of Charles Dickens" was not on Christmas Eve as previously announced and will be heard instead on Saturday, January 21st at 10:00 pm. Rah, humbug!

        About 40 Santas in baggy costumes ran amok in Auckland recently urinating on motorists from an overpass, vandalizing Christmas trees, stealing beer and soft drinks, spraying graffiti on office buildings and flinging bottles, according to the New Zealand Herald. "They came in, said 'Merry Christmas' and then helped themselves," said storeowner Changa Manakynda.  

        The Kiwi cops described it as "fairly average behavior from an organized group of idiots" who acted "more like clowns "than jolly old elves, and "Santarchy" spokesman Alex Dyer said this was a worldwide organization designed to protest Christmas's commercialization. Police Senior Sergeant Matt Rogers lamented that identifying the alleged perps "might be problematic," although they didn't rule out torture…and see:,0,3740207.photogallery?coll=la-home-multimedia

      All the cowboys and ladies in the saloon had just heard the news: "Big Jake" was in town!!!!  The saloon girls shrieked and fled. The cowboys sat frozen in terror.  Suddenly, the saloon doors smacked hard and a huge desperado lumbered in. Yes, it was "Big Jake" all right! All 6 foot seven inches of unwashed, dirty, unshaven cowboy. "Who wants to fight Big Jake?" he snarled.

      The saloon was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. No one moved a muscle. Big Jake surveyed the craven cowpokes and looked over at the right side of the saloon.

      "You cowboys on this side of the room are a bunch of yellow-bellied, lily-livered cowards!!" he spat out. No one even flinched. Then Big Jake looked over at the left side of the room. "And you men on this side", Big Jake taunted, "are a bunch of pansy, sissy faggots!!!" Again, no one moved a muscle. Then, after several seconds, there was a stirring over on the right side.  Finally, a slim cowboy with a pink bandana stood up.

       "Do you wanna fight Big Jake??" taunted B.J.

       "No sir", lisped the cowpoke, "I was just getting up to move. I'm sitting on the wrong side."

                Melinda gave me an "Amish Car and Buggy Freshener, guaranteed to be plain and fancy" and complete with Amish Pick Up Lines like, "Were you not on the cover of Apple Fritter Weekly?" And, "I must admit that much more than a barn has been raised." Plus she got me German lessons at the Beverly Hills Linguistic Institute and a trip to Maui.  (Ach du Aloha!)

                And from you all - thanks for our continuing and deepening friendships and the promise of even more personal growth and courageous behavior in the New Year.

        A blonde goes to the post office to buy stamps for her cards. She says to the clerk, "May I have 50 Christmas stamps? "The clerk says, "What denomination?"
