What I Left Behind, Part II...

This is going to be part of a series. I ain't through kicking Massachusetts by a damn sight. #1 blogdaughter sent this one in.

Family receives letter blasting their Christmas decorations because 'not everybody is Christian'
A Massachusetts family says they have received a letter from an anonymous scrooge blasting their Christmas decorations because “not everybody in the neighborhood is Christian."

The letter addressed to the Hunter family of Newton, Mass., which was postmarked in Boston and signed “your neighbors,” also called the decorations “cheap, tacky and kitschy.” Whoever wrote the letter urged the family to take their celebration indoors, Fox 25 reports.
With my hand to G-d, folks, if I ever receive a letter like this, I will make it my life's mission to have Christmas decorations so loud and garish that alien cultures will fly to earth just to tell me to knock that shit off. I will personally seek out, purchase, and install giant neon creches with the baby Jesus in a gold lame Elvis suit dancing around with a naked Allah while Ganesh busts out a hookah just to offend as many people as possible.

In other words, I would aspire to this:



Shorter Jay: Fold it until it's all corners and cram it sideways, Grinch.

That is all.

Wow. Most trolls don't have the ambition to put a stamp on a letter, let alone write one.

Although now I have to wonder if the Star of Bethlehem was somebody on another planet giving a Jay-like response to a similar complaint. "Marthax! Where's my Mr. Fusion? I'll show 'em a holiday display. Take it indoors my nether spiracles!"

I'm an atheist, and *I* am pissed off at the neighbor(s) who sent that ignorant letter. I'm also pretty lazy, so I don't put up outside decorations. But my neighbor has a lot of the inflatables and other stuff, despite being on (well-deserved) 100% disability. It was heart-breaking to see him in the mornings as I left for work dragging stuff into place with one arm (the other was supporting him on a cane).

And unless the homeowner in question has a creche, how do the neighbors know that he's not celebrating Saturnalia or something else?

That's some weapons-grade snark, right there.

Get IT! And read the description of his decorations. And dream.

I'm with Chris here. As an atheist, I firmly consider the writer of said letter to be a douchebag.

We can't really jump to the conclusion that it was an atheist writing it though, as it just said not christian. (Got any Nation of Islam guys in the neighborhood? Seems like something one of them might do).

Does everyone have to get butt hurt over everything? The put it on Facebook and go on Fox Snooze?

Taking the effing letter and toss it your shredder. Then get on with your life, assuming you have one.

No, apparently everyone has to be a victim of something these days.
