“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

don't read this post

Read calamus's immediately below. It's far more thoughtful and well-written and, ultimately, worthwhile.

But if you're still here...

A few weeks ago, Panhandle Truth Squad friend and colleague, the redoubtable Mr. Anger, began a post with the captivating words "Bill O'Reilly is certainly not going to like this." Mr. Anger went on to describe some greeting cards that were available featuring iconography such as "Charles Darwin dressed as Santa, and an evolutionary line-up going from the monkey to Santa Claus".

We immediately ordered several, and got them in time to use as decorations at our Monkey Ancestors Day party.

There probably isn't time to order these in time to send out for the Winter Solstice, or Christmas, or Festivus or anything else, but we'd like to return the favor nonetheless.

From The Onion: Santa Claus on a melting ice cap. The sentiment: "Merry Second-To-Last Christmas."
