no joke- while searching for this song on youtube with the query '12 days of christmas'... amidst the many groups of white guys doing this song a cappella i found a video titled 'rudy giuliani farts during michigan voter fraud hearing'

fight over gold vs golden

discuss your christmas plans

tithe me 10% of all your holiday gifts

    also re that long message about political and spiritual identity- i do like this guy. it's sort of his liberal awakening after being a smug libertarian for years, so i feel at least a little obliged to help. in my head canon i'm the chubby, artsy bisexual high school junior and he's the older senior, good looking, confident, in a wrestling singlet, forearm veins looking like fire hoses... i have to help him be less confused

    Femdom isn't my kink but I would totally pay a strong woman to step on me if it would crack my back

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Well-trod comedic ground but the gifts in the 12 days of christmas was some real trash. Half of it is birds and the rest is even worse: performance artists giving you a personal show.

    I don't even like it when the mariachi band goes by at a mexican restaurant and now suddenly there's ten lords a-leaping in my home, each of them making eye contact with me, pleading for engagement, showing off the leaping they trained for years to perfect, each trying to extract the emotional support of an entire audience from me alone.

    My superpower is that I can crack my own back all the way up and down with no assistance.

    Upper back is done by sitting and putting my hands on my thighs and pushing while relaxing my back and it goes crrrrrrrrkrkrkrkrkr all the way up. Lower back is a twisting motion while relaxing the lower back muscles.

    William S. Baring-Gould suggests that the presents sent on the first seven days were all birds—the "five gold rings" were not actually gold rings, but refer to the five golden rings of the ringed pheasant. Others suggest the gold rings refer to "five goldspinks"—a goldspink being an old name for a goldfinch; or even canaries.

    i don't like goldspink. it sounds a little slur adjacent. maybe a slur for gay iranian men.

    I suspect my upper back cracking ability has to do with having simian-proportioned arms. Would you take this ability if it also meant that not one single off-the-rack buttondown ever fit you and you blew out the elbows of every dress shirt you've ever bought?

    You are a very smart man but the first time I met you the length of your arms made me reassess that

    I didn’t even realize I had that prejudice until you stirred it

    I can't crack my nose but I do like tenting both hands over my face, putting a thumbnail behind a front tooth, and pantomiming cracking it while picking at the tooth to make a snapping noise. It makes children scream every time and then they want to learn how to do it.

    Learning I can crack my ears was pretty crazy. I pretty much sound like a low budget horror monster when I move if I don't keep my motions fluid. It gets very loud and creeps people out.

    Highlights of school Christmas carol singing:

    "Fiiiiiiiiiiive gooooooooolllld riiiiings"

    Really emphasising the "wish" in "We WISH you a Merry Christmas"

    Knowing that during the chorus of "Give me Oil in My Lamp" at least one kid wouldn't be paying attention and instead of finishing it with "Sing Hosanna to the King" would sing "Sing Hosanna to the King of Kings" like a fucking idiot, I mean Jesus what a tool

    I'm sure these are universal memories to everybody who went to an English CofE-aligned junior school and utterly incomprehensible to everybody else

    I should write for BuzzFeed

    getting more and more aggressive with "we WISH you a merry christmas" is universal for children everywhere. Really screaming it until mom stares daggers at you

    The other one, "Give me Oil in My Lamp" is a christmas song repurposed to be about hanukkah? I have never heard of this at all.

    My mom runs a daycare and she can sing holiday songs with the kids, but if she wants to do christmas songs she has to hit other religions too, and not just with a single token song.

    The result is a lot of extremely made up hanukkah music and while hilarious I am not sure this is what the policy had intended.

    Best way to crack one's back:

    Stand back to back with a friend or loved one, someone trustworthy

    Link arms at the elbow

    Have the cracker bend forward, lifting the crackee up onto their back and bending them backward with support, even lifting them off their feet

    The more core and back strength you've got, the more you can withstand this and get the back cracks

    Usually you'll get one or two decent cracks; with enough core strength and practice, you can get a full accordion of cracks down the back

    Please tell me she does non-Abrahamic made up songs because those sound awesome.

    Apparently it's based on The Parable of the Ten Virgins, so still Christian - the oil lamp is a coincidence

    They wouldn't have bothered to even make lip service to other winter festivals in my area back then - I didn't know any Jewish people until I went to university, and maybe four non-white people total

    Hanukkah was just something that American shows would mention as an afterthought in their Christmas specials

    I used to crack my neck pretty violently, multiple times a day, for like a decade

    It definitely strained a tendon or three and weakened my neck, leading to hypermobility and pain issues

    I kind of miss it, still. The deep, loud, merciless crunching, the cascade of heavy cracking sounds, it was so satisfying. I made people leave the room in bio-auditory distress more than once. God, the power.
