If you've ever lost a Drake, you're doing it wrong

It'd be a cruel parent who stuck to that philosophy. And probably a divorcee too Lol

That's an interesting assumption. Is it cruel to free people from the shackles of obligatory gift-giving? See, when I buy something for someone, it's because I found something they might really like. I don't need some tradition to tell me when I should do that, and frankly, if people are only doing stuff for other people just because it's Christmas, and they feel obligated to visit and share a meal with people they may not really like, that seems like a much greater cruelty to me. I know that if I had kids, Christmas wouldn't be the one time of the year that I stopped to give a **** about them.

The 'divorcee' comment is obviously a snipe and completely irrelevant, so we'll ignore it for the banal trolling that it is. Now, did you have a bad joke to tell or were you just here to get mad at me for not conforming to your social expectations of me?

It can duck.


Having a good Xmas I hope?


Meh, it's just another day to me personally. If I'm going to celebrate something, it needs to be something worthwhile, like if a mate gets a new job or winning the lotto, not just the northern hemisphere's winter solstice. And if I'm going to buy stuff for people, it's going to be because I found something nice they might like, not because the commercials on TV obligate me to because it's the time of the year to do so.

Brilliant! You're posting a "War on Christmas" meta-joke in a joke thread. By posting a "War on Christmas" comment, you're continuing the joke theme by implicitly stating that there is no war on Christmas!

OTOH, politics on the forums is a no-no. So the joke is on whomever gets forum-banned. Which is Meta^2 and thus Brilliant!^2
