The funny side of Christmas in a politically incorrect world.

    I almost hate to offer this edition of Christmas songs, but humor is always a great picker-upper this time of year. In our current environment of political correctness, this could create a hostile workforce or offend someone but in the words Porky Pig     That's all folks!"

    First we have the irrepressible Alvin who can't seem to please old Alan Sherman even though he made him a ton of money.

Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas Don't be Late


    Next up is a totally political incorrect Porky Pig trying to get through the Blue Christmas song. It too may not be allow in future holidays. I feel it is okay to offer this as I had a pretty bad speech impediment as a child and experienced the brunt of a few jokes and jabs. Miraculously, I survived and am able to laugh about it today. It is on my Christmas playlist and still never fails to bring a laugh, perhaps at my own expense but well worth the memory.
