Snark! the Herald Angels Sing: Sarcasm, Bitterness and the Holiday Season
Bah! Humbug! It's that time of year again....Time to spend too much, drink too much, eat too much, smile falsely, dig down deep to try and find "good cheer," battle crowds, try to find parking in over-crowded lots, ignore surly clerks, bartenders, waiters, valets, and parking lot attendants, all in the pursuit of that moment of happiness known throughout the world as...dun, dun, dun: the Holidays. Has there ever been a time more suited to tapping into snark? With commentary, jokes, and quotes regarding Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Year's; on bad presents, worse in-laws, horrible children, and much more glorious excess. Enjoy such rotten sugar plums as:
* "Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people once a year."--Victor Borge
* "If someone screws up on their gift, there are seven more days to correct it...No awkward explanations of virgin birth...No Irving Berlin songs."--Among the Top Ten Reasons to Love Hanukkah
* "What I don't like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day."--Phyllis Diller
Snark, the Herald Angels Sing is destined to be a holiday classic.
