Christmas Choir

IN THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON at hand...
I think we should organize a CHRISTMAS CHOIR here at JBS.

What do you think?

We already have the harmony, the voices, the talent, all we need to do is select our music and set aside some of our free time for a little practice.

So speak up folks............

I was in the junior high choir. It was suggested that my future wasn't in music, and I should either mouth the words or switch my elective to journalism.


This must be my second shot at fame! For our first selection, I'd like to suggest the following song- it made me think of Bud and Sonnie...



Chipmunks roasting on an open fire
Hot sauce dripping from their toes.
Yuletide squirrels fresh-filleted by the choir
They poked hot skewers through their nose.

Everybody knows
Some pepper and a garlic clove
Help to make them seasoned right.
Tiny rats with a crisp golden coat
Will really hit the spot tonight.

And now when Santa sees his tray
There'll be some homemade chipmunk jerky for his sleigh
And every hungry child is gonna spy
To see if chipmunks really sing when they fry.

And so I'm brushing on some honey glaze
To keep them crisp and juicy too.
Let's hope they get served
Many times, many ways;
Tasty chipmunks, good food.

And so I'm offering some recipes
From chipmunk pie to chipmunk stew.
I'm not really sad
That it ended this way.
Furry chipmunks, screw you.

See there is hope. I knew Cami would be the first with a worthwhile contribution. I think we may already have our opening song.

Cami, do you do know that most serial killers tortured small animals in their childhood? They are usually white middle class males in their early thities. I believe you fit 4 of 5 points in the profile.

Ya can't prove a thing, Jim...

I can't find the writer of that charming verse to give credit where credit is due- I heard it on one of the morning shows. Don't want Jim thinkin' I've only been pretending to be female to avoid suspicion...

the spirit's all right
but no rodent should celebrate be,
though my thought
nor member of my brain
be spent with lack of wont
for lack of celebrant's pee.

I.E.

Inna godda davidda baby....


Forgive me, I'm outa work and the luxury of free actions in the be... kitchen has gotten to me.

If I keep my head about m'self
I'll find my eyes upon the shelf
where surely I'll be most like to find
the thinkings of those most like my kind.

I think there may be hope for me. Sonnie's stuff is starting to make a lot of sense.
