Friday Frivolities: Christmas, Trump, trauma, trauma and the greatest Xmas song ever...

Five bits of frivolity for a hearty dose of Friday distraction.

Santa’s sleighves

“It’s Christmas time,” sang Paul Young on a certain timeless Christmas classic from back in the day. Then Bono came along and ruined it all by telling us to feel bad for those less fortunate then ourselves. Thanks, Bono, you big killjoy.

Anyway, I like to imagine he’s singing about elves, the original exploited sweatshoppers.

Happy Holidays from the Pissed off Elf.

Back when I interned at Santa's Workshop, I was pissed.

Hell toupée

You know that guy who always drinks too much at the Christmas party and runs his damn mouth off? He’s running for president of the United States.

You know your drunk buddy who always says what he’d do if he was president? Turns out he is actually running this time!

Forever alone

We all loved Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York and the three idiot sequels that followed, but did you ever stop to think about the toll that that Christmas time neglect was taking on young Kevin? Well he’s still out there. And he’s mad as hell.

No funny title. That’s messed up.

Kids being scared by new Snapchat features!

Haha! What do you all think of the new Snapchat features?Add us on snapchat!
