Fantasy Football:Santa appears to be open on the sideline, but the Grinch may not be able to get the ball to him!

I found this website, where you submit overly done, crazy, odd or just plain ugly Christmas displays every year and it proved to be so entertaining I thought I'd share. Some of the sayings below the pics had me cracking up.

Cutout Takeover:
After everyone goes to sleep, the cutouts plot how to take over the town!

Santa? Check. Bicycle? Um... check. Parachute? Huh, what?

Reindeer Discrimination:
Grazers to the left, everyone else to the right.

A job for Jack Bauer:
The inflatables wouldn't budge on their demands, so the plastic figures just had to stand around and wait to see what happened.

Icicles Down:
And the icicles were not draped over the garage with care...

Oh give me a home, where the electric deer roam...

There were a lot of other funny ones but I had to edit it down. If you see some you liked send me the link and I'll add it on if it's good!

*Suggested by Jen:
Pray for the Camel:
We've come here today to pay our respects to this poor beast of burden.

Who climbs and schemes
for wealth and place?
And mourns his brothers
fall from grace–
But takes what's due, in any case
—Safe Capricorn

Birthday Horoscope:
Daily extended (by
They say that opposites attract, but the people who appeal to you most today will be those who are on the same wavelength as you. People with different viewpoints and attitudes won't interest you. Differences are usually quite intriguing to you, but right now your inner self is avidly seeking comfort and validation that what you feel and think is right. Obey this need, and don't feel guilty if you just don't want conflict right now!

Capricorn, whose constellation is known as Capricornus, is one of the oldest of the astrological interpretations. Ruled by Saturn, its symbol is the goat. This is sometimes depicted as a sea borne hybrid or Dolphin. The image is often an animal with the body of a goat and the tail of a fish. In one tradition the image represents the god Pan transforming into a sea creature. A representation, perhaps, of the extremities found within this Astrological sign.

The Capricornian is generally a serious character possessing a wry sense of humor. Independent, steady as a rock, Capricorn reflects earthy qualities that range from clever to vacuous. Mostly cautious, confident, strong willed, reasonable and hard working, Capricorns are a rock upon which to build. They are often aloof, shrewd, practical, responsible and persevering. They are capable of great endurance; a whatever it takes, for as long as it takes persistence. Reliable in any profession they undertake, but lacking in originality, they usually excel in following up on what someone else has started.

Dating for Beginners

Looks like David is catching up to the skills of my cats--he too can use a computer. Check out this posting he recently created in the hunt for a *gasp* babyfriend! ID is not old enough yet...but as Godparents the girl must meet our critical standards as well as his 'rents.

Don't let him grow up too fast! BTW I love the last line and the ceiling interests part.
TOO funny!

Since my girl is too young right now I guess he can play the field for a little bit. Just make sure he doesn't get any kind of baby "germs" from other girls or he won't be as cute.

The War on 'Tara'

How much of a traitor I really am...

America is caught in a time of great crisis. Never before has she faced such a menacing threat to the freedoms she upholds. Terrorists swarm around her on all sides, threatening with their evil plans. And yet there are many, inside America as well as out, who are actually rooting for the terrorists to win.

Perhaps you are one of these terrorist sympathizers. Or maybe you are a true American patriot. There is only one way to find out for sure, and that is to take this quiz. Answer HONESTLY, no deceiving, and at the end you will find out how much of a traitor you are. Good luck.

Your 'Do You Want the Terrorists to Win' Score: 83%

You are a terrorist-loving scoundrel who hates our dear leader and the values he defends. There are few redeeming qualities about you. You most likely celebrated when the evil-doers hit us on 9/11, then opposed the Iraq war when we tried to pay them back. You hurt us at every step and cause troops to die in the field by questioning Bush's decisions. You are most likely a lost cause, doomed to be a brainwashed victim of free thought and liberalism forever. No dose of Ann Coulter's prose can save you now.

You be the judge

It seems quite obvious where David gets his different faces.

From studying Mom & Dad of course!

The resemblance is uncanny.

And I Hear Him Every Night

On every street
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from....

I hear him every night. Him being my mysterious neighbor with the can't-be-good-cough.

He’s got fasting black lungs
Made of clove splintered shards
They’re the kind that will talk
Through a wheezing of coughs

I rarely, if ever, see this guy. Actually, I can't recall his face and I've been living here since the summer.

And I hear him every night
In every pore
And every time he just makes me

He's a quiet guy, and other than knowing where he lives, and that he has a helluva cough, I don't know much about him.

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Must I hide
'Cause I’ll never never sleep alone

I barely hear him at all except some weird scurrying up and down his stairs, and during the occasional late night when I hear him hacking up a lung.

Look at how they flock to him
From an isle of open sores
He knows that the taste is such
Is such to die for

I imagine him to be a recovering smoker.

And I hear him every night
On every street
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from....

I feel as if one night I may have to call an ambulance or something; he gets so bad sometimes.

Oh lord
Said I’m, Said I’m, Said I’m
Said I’m bloodshot for sure

And then the hacking turns to silence.

Pale runs the ghost
Til I'm merely
Swollen on the shore
in every pore
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from…

I hope he gets better...

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Let me die
'Cause I’ll never never sleep alone
