Parent Mad 6-Year-Old Didn’t Like Peanuts Special

December 19, 2001 | Issue 37•46

ROSE HILL, VA—Bruce Pillard, 34, was angered Tuesday over his 6-year-old daughter’s indifferent reaction to A Charlie Brown Christmas. “That show is a classic and an annual tradition!” an incensed Pillard told daughter Courtney after watching the program on CBS. “It is not ‘boring,’ and the voices do not sound ‘weird.’ What the hell is wrong with you?” Courtney was sent to her room for the remainder of the evening.

Oh how The Chum Master loves The Onion.

“Last Christmas”-the original by Wham, and a far superior cover version

November 30, 2008

A very closeted George Michael back in his Wham days. Notice as he hangs his head under the weight of living a lie. Well, the 15 lbs. of hair doesn’t help either, but still…

Dedicated to Izzy, a man whose love for that song is exceeded only by his love for publicly mooning his friends.  Not me of course…other friends.  Oh the shame…..

Next up is Kotaro Oshio performing a very nice acoustic cover of the song. Just a bit more understated than the Wham version.
