Because life is hard, and the week is long, and because none of the lightning bolts struck too near the Magic Doghouse last time, let’s try this…For our third Friday funny, we proudly present a snapshot in time, recently departed.
This week’s Friday Funny also pays homage to what has become one of our favorite customs around here: We celebrate Christmas in July. Yes, you read that right–we haul out our plastic Christmas tree, and we set it up in the room formerly known as the dining room which hasn’t yet really been repurposed. We decorate it with things like silk sunflowers and daisies and goldenrod because, hey, it’s July. We bake Christmas cookies and candy. We play carols. We watch Christmas specials. We crank the air conditioner and don our favorite Christmas attire. We invite over like-minded friends. And we celebrate. Boy, do we celebrate. In some ways it’s better than Christmas at Christmas because it’s ours–our very own invented holiday, re-tooled and dropped right smack dab where we need one most.
This year, I find myself with a greeting card on my hands that expresses the Spirit of Christmas in July perfectly. It’s a little more political than we usually get over here, but hey, there are animals in it. Animals are Christmassy in July…ie? Whatever. Who doesn’t like animals? It’s like the Discovery Channel, right? Right? Sort of? Oh well, enjoy!
The Holy Republican Family, with Holy Elephant, and Holy Cow.
I think the rest you can handle on your own. The Naughty Monkeys didn’t make it into the caption, but they’re there, tastefully subdued in the background.
This art is mine, mine, mine. If you want some of it, head over to my CafePress store and pick some up. There are all kinds of goodies there.
