In lieu of writing my own biting commentary on the utter inanity of overcommercialization of sacred holy days, especially on the cusp of an economic depression, I merely submit to you this latest masterpiece from Sam Logan:
P.S. Why have I taken this long to notice that “lieu” is basically a Frenchy version of “lie”? So… I’d write about how annoyed I am with the whole economy and corruption of the holidays, but I’ll lie and say that things are great here and that I love drivers who cut you off in heavy snow conditions.
(I’ll be back later with something less… snarky, but this is all I have time for now, and it’s cathartic. So there. Pthbthbthb.)
