"It's just that some snow globes, like people, are much, much better than others."..
The best thing about Christmas being over....is that we'll soon be saying goodbye to these horrible commercials for another eleven months.
Wow, Santa sure is careful to make everything just right for the pretty, wealthy white people, isn't he? So much time and effort to make sure that perfect lives are just a little more perfect.
Meanwhile, how many kids got somewhat cheaper versions of what they really wanted, clothes from Goodwill, or nothing at all?
How many soup kitchens couldn't quite meet demand this year and had to turn away dissapointed, hungry moms and dads and children?
How many parents couldn't spend time with their children on December 25 because the store they work at for minimum wage simply had to stay open* for the idiots who might have to drop by for just one more thing?
I guess that if Santa is going to be so meticulous in getting some snow globes just right- down to the pretty red bow- he's going to have to cut some corners on most of the others, huh?
Hey Santa, I've got an idea what you can do with your Snow Globe. It involves committing an act of...umm....surgery....on yourself.
*I taught on Christmas morning. As I was walking to school I passed the local Whole Foods Market at 7:50 AM. There was a well-dressed white guy standing outside the door, clearly put out because the store was not open for his convenience. At 7:50 AM on Christmas morning. Un. Freaking. Believable.
