And towards the end of the Sixth day ...
God rang for the elevator.
Tonight is the second night of Hanukkah, hopefully you're all not too bloated.
And kids, know when too much candy becomes an addiction - please put the gelt down. Overeaters Anonymous 845-426-1028 - ask for Marcia.
Here's a early holiday gift for you - enjoy How the Grinch Stole Christmas:
Christmas video countdown - So you think you have it bad at work
At least you're not a chicken gutter.
December 12, 1915 -
It's Francis Albert Sinatra's birthday.

Today in History:
December 12, 1937 -
Japanese aircraft shell and sink US gunboat Panay on the Yangtze River in China. Japan apologized, disciplining those involved and paying $2.2M reparations.
You think we might have seen something coming up.
December 12, 1980 -
"Whip It" earns Devo a gold record. It is the first distinction of its kind for any song about masturbation.
Whip it good.
December 12, 1991 -
Richard Gere (who is not gay) marries supermodel Cindy Crawford (ditto).
Widespread rumors that Gere was intimate with a gerbil have yet to be verified.
Again, " Richard is not a homosexual or bisexual, he just get's carried away at those orgies."
12 more shopping days until Christmas.
And so it goes.
