In Praise of Reindeer Poop

All I want for Christmas is a chainsaw and Stanley Black and Decker is the brand for me. As my yard is skewed with many leaves and pine cones all stealthy fallen from my neighbor's tree. Now Santa... I've gone and asked my neighbor to see my point and do what's right. But the Man will not bow to rhyme or reason so I will be cutting down his tree on Christmas night. Now I'm not one to gossip about my neighbor or disparage him to a fine person like yourself. But last Christmas he was eyeing up your reindeer and doing God knows what with several elves. Now I know you are under pressure and may not have time to deal with this louse. So when your reindeer hear the call of nature, please make sure it happens on my neighbor's house. Now I know we are supposed to love our neighbor and when confronted... turn the other cheek. But I've seen the Man pushing snow on to my driveway so help me savor the retribution which I seek. I know a Christmas letter filled with vengeance is not the typical thing you want to hear. But rest assured my neighbor's doom and ruination will fill my troubled heart with Xmas cheer. On further thought and contemplation, I'd rather have a Lazy-boy to ease my strife. But in keeping with my current situation, please bring and give the chainsaw to my wife. The End *For those who are interested. I will be posting my cartoon 'Bob's Your Uncle' on my homepage. A new one will appear every couple of days.

I never thought about that. Giving a chainsaw to my wife would be just asking for trouble. Have a great day.
