Tuttle Is Leading The War On Christmas!!

Post by Jester » Mon Nov 20, 2017 12:18 pm

Can you believe it? My own brother, fighting right along side with Satan's favorite people, Christmas haters. Expect a jolly bah humbug from him. I doubt the S.O.B even believes in Santa Claus. Heart of coal that guy.

Oh no! That's horrible. I always liked Tuttle too. I'm wondering if I stop believing in him what will happen. <pencils in coal next to Tuttle's name>

Faith is a precious thing that must be protected. Get him in here, now.

Don't be fooled by my poor, lost sheep of a brother. He is young and inexperienced with the deeper joys of life.

He has been led astray by that harlot Target who preaches a false gospel that Christmas must be celebrated beginning at the stroke of Midnight on All Saints Day. He has broken the commandment that Thou Must Not Employ "All I Want For Christmas is You, Baby" and all other sundry jingle-bellish tunes and/or Christmas decor before Thanksgiving.

Getting excited for Christmas before Thanksgiving is folly. Like putting a drainage ditch in the wall at Helm's Deep. I've explored this before and I stand upon my credentials:

My wife jokes that I'm a scrooge for laying down the Ban but I feel I have to make a Helm's Deep-type stand against all the orcish marauders who want to start the Christmas season in October. They shall not breach the wall!

wait...should I consider my Pre-Thanksgiving Christmas Excitement my weakness? Let's see how this plays out:




Wisdom demands that we wait at least until after Thanksgiving. Look to The Advent. It will be worth it.

Yeah, yeah - Thanksgiving is long done in Canada. It's on to Christmas. But no, not really. First all the stores are onto Black Friday, which is definitely American. Odd.

Don't let my big brother fool you. He acts like he has a heart but I snuck over to his house just now and caught this picture of him through the window.

Where did you get that? It doesn't look like a young Richard Dreyfus nor Jesus. So it has to be somebody else... ahem.

I've yer back on this one, Tuttle. My kids have evened learned to demonstrate outrage at neighborhood offenders. This past Saturday it snowed, for about an hour. Big, soft, postcard like flakes. I came inside and they were listening to Christmas music. They all three jumped up with guilty/ashamed faces the second I came in the door. They know.

The shenanigans, humiliations, and brutal Looney Toonish torture of Harry and Marv cannot be bound within the confines of the Christmas season. An argument could be made that Home Alone isn't even a Christmas movie, but a movie that uses Christmas as a backdrop, but even if it is a Christmas movie, seeing Marv smashed in the head with a brick four times in a row is worth breaking my rule.

As an aside I forgot there is a scene where Kevin is standing on top of the World Trade Center and I made a comment about 9/11 which led the younger kids to keep asking me, "So wait...that happened in real life?"

And then I forgot that Trump has a cameo! There's a line later in the movie that shed an ironic light on a conversation we had when Trump's part came on. The bellboy is telling Kevin that Herbert Hoover once stayed on the same floor. Kevin says, "The Vacuum guy?" and the bellboy says, "No...the president." When Trump came on screen, I pointed and said, "Hey, that's the president." To which one of the kids said, "He was on Home Alone!?" and I say, deflatedly, "...yes". Even funnier is that none of the kids could figure out why he would make a cameo if he wasn't the President. "So you're saying he wasn't the president during this?" ("Kids are stupid" - Marv) "So why was he in the movie?"

To which I just silently cursed the Bizzaro world we find ourselves in.
