About That Drummer Boy

There is so much of this schlocky Christmas music on the radio now and frankly, it's bugging the shit out of me.

I mean, there are some serious LOSER Christmas Carols.

Like that totally dumb dumb dumb dumb Little Drummer Boy.

What the ?!?

Today, I'm driving my car and I hear ONE TOO MANY TIMES, "the ox and lamb kept time" and I think, "What the hell is that about?!?"

The Ox and Lamb Kept Time ... huh?

No, they didn't keep time.

I'm not going for it.

I'm not imagining some dumb old ox and some tiny shaggly little lamb beating time with cloven hoof and furry paw. It just doesn't add up.
