Time for the War on Festivus!
Only nine days left to bash that most bogus of all year-end holidays!!!

Feats of strength? Bah! Everyone knows all Festivus celebrators use steroids!!

Airing of grievances? Puh-LEEZE! That's why God (the real one) gave us Bill O'Reilly!

Don't even get me started on the pole. Does it mean that Festivus was founded by strippers?!

Down with Festivus, from all the rest of us!!

:sarcasm:

1. I use drilling pipe instead of a simple pole...
It takes a Feat of Strength just to get it in the room! Then I can air my grievances at the numbskull idea of using drilling pipe instead of a pole.




Is it time for the 5' tall "BAH HUMBUG" letters to be placed on the front lawn? ;)

4. Why do you hate America so much?
And how did the Costanzas put five-foot-tall letters on their front lawn when they lived in an apartment building?

5. Maybe they put astroturf on the parking spaces out front...
Did they always live in an apartment?

6. Hell, yes! I'll join the war on Festivus!
The Seinfeld episode, "The Strike", which featured Festivus first aired December 18th 1997. The "Festivus" thing was still funny until about 2001. It remained mildly amusing until about 2004. Now it's just annoying.

Bagels yes! Festivus no!

9. Dont forget us Festivus celebrators have metal poles!
Instead of Christmas trees! You can do some real damage with a metal pole, not so much with tinsel.
