    I would have voted for Sparky Ukulele's poetic gem, if I had had internet access over the last week.

    I hope this is not too late to bring to the party. I will do an "anti-Christmas" song for the main thread this week entitled "A Modern Day Scrooge". But this song is far more appropriate here.
