    and "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" isn't a fucking Christmas song.

    That is all.

    It had to be said.

    Also, "Well, tonight thank God it's them instead of you" is the worst sentiment ever relayed in a Christmas song. And I don't think it really snows anywhere in Africa.

    All I know is Santa Claus Conquers The Martians best captures the Christmas spirit.

    People who live in Japan have no right to comment on the proper way to observe Christmas.

    :jj: So get this, I live within driving distance of JESUS' GRAVE! Japan has an actual graveyard where they claim Jesus came and died.

    Look at you. You used to be so cocky. You were going to go out and conquer the world. You once called me a "warped, frustrated, old man"! What are you but a warped, frustrated young man? A miserable little clerk crawling in here on your hands and knees and begging for help. No securities, no stocks, no bonds. Nothin' but a miserable little $500 equity in a life insurance policy. You're worth more dead than alive!

    I have such issues of self loathing I often have a dream where I am granted the "I wish I was never born" wish, and unlike the movie, everybodys lives were vastly improved with my removal.

    Maybe I'll film my version and just call it "Good Riddance. "

    If there's such a thing as the "greatest movie ever made", that is it.

    I think more people could relate to a movie like this than "It's A Wonderful Life."

    I'm not discounting the quality of the film, I think It's A Wonderful Life is brilliant for a number of reasons -- it's just that it's not technically a Christmas movie. Christmastime in a movie does not make the movie a Christmas film. Love Actually is more of a Christmas film than this.
