Happy Festivus!


Frank Costanza: “Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way.
Cosmo Kramer: “What happened to the doll?
Frank Costanza: “It was destroyed. But out of that a new holiday was born: a Festivus for the rest of us!

Get your poles out of the crawl space, it’s Festivus!

I started the tradition of observing Festivus here at The Confluence back in 2008. It’s our heritage.

The Airing of Grievances will start tonight at 9 p.m. eastern.


The Festivus pole

And now, you're gonna hear about it!

It is time for the Festivus “Airing of Grievances”

I’m angry at John Edwards for turning out to be a two-timing lowlife phony, John McCain for campaigning timidly like a Democrat, and my Congressman, Dennis Cardoza,for switching his endorsement from Hillary to Uh-bama.

Who pissed you off this year, and why?

Tis the Season

bah-humbug

Tommorrow is Festivus.
