    If I see another car commercial where people are buying cars for each other as Christmas presents and putting those giant red bows on them… I might try to deep fry a frozen turkey indoors and end it all!

    "My nights
    They are not lonely.
    My dreams
    I dream peaceful and easy.
    The dawn
    Breaks softly to me.
    Mama said it's the little things
    That get you through this world
    And for every lonely little boy
    There will be one lonely little girl.
    Mine eyes have not seen the glory
    I have felt no angel's kiss--
    But when I thank God for his tender mercies
    You're the first one on my list."

    (Scott Kempner)

    It's that special time of year in Dutchyland. Blackfacers vs. the Normals. Wonder if any Iranian journalists will be grilling Dutch players about it. :whistling:

    Dutch police are appealing to the public to help them find three men in blackface suspected of involvement in an attack on anti-racism activists.

    On Tuesday, police released photos of three men – wearing blackface and dressed as Zwarte Piet (Black Pete), the controversial blackface character that’s a traditional fixture of Dutch Christmas festivities – that were taken during a violent confrontation in Staphorst, a town in the Dutch Bible Belt, on the 19th of November.

    I'd tread softly if I were you. Some mods have exceptional powers and you don't want to make Pete Crazy...eh! :cautious:
