Posts of Christmas Past

Before I get to Christmas, let me speak briefly of Hanukkah. For the second straight year, I shall do you a service (and my religion a disservice) by answering any question you have about Judaism. And I mean any question. Does all that penny-pinching hurt our fingers? What's the appropriate topping for latkes? How and when shall we exact our revenge upon Mel Gibson? Just leave your question in the comments section of my previous post by this Wednesday, and it shall be answered.

But now, onto Christmas. December is always a busy time, and I expect the holidays to be even busier this year as we celebrate The Professor's First Christmas.™ Thus, starting this Friday, I will be dipping into my archives to bring you the posts of Christmas past. Like a fruitcake that rises from the ashes year after year, my yuletide posts will never die.

Which is a fitting intro, since I'll begin with...
  • Christmas Carols for the Zombie Apocalypse (Dec 23)
  • Not a Creature Stirring (Dec 24)
  • The 12 Twisted Days of Christmas (Dec 25 - Jan 5)
That's two straight weeks of Grade-A recycled humor, folks. And it'll be new to most of you; the Twisted 12 are from back when The Wheel only had a half-dozen readers.1

So why don't you cozy on up to the fire and grab yourself some nog (or some chestnuts). I'll be back soon with my own particular brand of Christmas, and you won't want to miss it.2

1 Plus, I'll be editing the posts to make them even better. No, not like George Lucas messing with Star Wars. I may make Darth Vader scream out "Nooooooooo!" but I can assure you there will be absolutely no Jar-Jar Binks.
2 Or maybe you will want to miss it. After all, there's no accounting for taste. (Although, thanks to Price Waterhouse Coopers, there is accounting for Taste, Inc.)


  1. I am looking forward to them all...of course the zombie apocalypse will have a special place in my heart!

  2. Alex, and it will be; anything can be fun when it's set to music. (See Mel Brooks' Springtime for Hitler or The Inquisition (what a show!))

    Anthony, are you looking forward to my own particular brand of Christmas, or the zombie apocalypse? (You don't actually have to answer. Either way, there will be plenty of groaning.)

    Chuck, and it'll have to stay in your heart, since once the apocalypse comes you won't have any more braaaains.
