Worst General Christmas Stuff: The fact that all that goodwill doesn’t last and all the miserable, grumpy Grinches and Grinchettes out there who try to bring everyone down and ruin our good time and fun. Assholes.

I felt a lot of Christmas goodwill toward you until you mentioned Mariah Carey's song. Sure, she has great boobs, but that song of hers? Oy Vay!! Cheers Jayman!!
