Just A Thought - Cracked Carol: I'm Dreaming...

by
December 22nd, 2006

Tradition.

It's what made Tevye break out in song at the beginning of Fiddler on the Roof; it's the notion behind the working class lunch box logos popular at Virginia Tech; it's why thousands of normally sane people risk life and limb to run in front of a herd of angry 1 ton bulls in Pamplona, Spain; it is why your fish fork, dinner fork, and salad fork are arranged, in that order, on the left side of your plate; and, it is why I am inflicting you with yet another Cracked Carol.

This is not a tradition, you say? Au contraire, mon ami!

Each year for the last 3 years (2005, 2004, 2003) I've butchered Christmas carols and offered them here for the express purpose of...um, well, because I can. So, while this tradition is short on history it is long on ambiguity, and isn't that what good traditions are all about?

This year's carol is mercifully short, which was less taxing on me and may be less of a target to those sensitive to the mangling of innocent Christmas carols.

So, in the spirit of Christmas, commercialism, and giving a li'l sum-sum back to those who read the stuff I write, I offer this year's Cracked Carol sung to the tune of "White Christmas."

Enjoy.

I'm dreaming of a Black MacBook
No, I don't want a MacBook Pro
Though the Pro is faster
The MacBook's classier
and both sport Intel's new Do-Oh

I'm dreaming of a Black MacBook
and I'll tell everyone I know
Maybe some want MacBooks in white
But for me the Black MacBook's are just right

Yes, I'm dreaming of a Black MacBook
and I'll tell everyone I know
Maybe you'll get a MacBook in white
But my MacBook must be black as night

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
