I hope you all have a happy New Year and don't eat too many cookies! ;)
That reminds me of some letters written to Santa asking him to not eat so many cookies because they didn't want him to be fat (maybe they that Santa being overweight is a bad example for kids), and for the jolly fat man in a red suit to stop saying Ho, ho, ho, as it could be (or was) deemed offensive to women. Seriously.
Some people...and I'm not even going to start talking about the Darwin Awards. :) It quite obviously has a flawed premise, but many of them are hilarious all the same.
On another note, my cold is just about gone, but I suggest if you have a cold, go find Ricola Natural Cherry Honey and/or Natural Honey Lemon with Echinacea cough drops. No, this is not a paid advertisement/endorsement; I just happen to like those two types the best, with the Honey Herb flavor coming in third. When you have a sore throat and are taking couch drops like candy because they provide temporary relief, you probably want them to taste good as well - at least I do.
