Merry Christmas Eve, Santa’s elves! It seems like we just did this, but it’s somehow time once again for that most hallowed of holiday traditions: A Very Ben Christmas.
Sorry, I think the autocorrect on my phone changed “ridiculous” to “hallowed.”
Nerds, this damn story is now 12 years old. How is that possible? I suspect we’re caught in a weird time anomaly. Either way, make some cocoa, put on your Santa hat, and enjoy the magic. Also, pay Ben’s blog a visit. Or don’t. I’m not the boss of you.
Seriously, though, raise a glass of holiday cheer to Beej, nerds. I don’t want him to sue me for using his likeness or something.
Dudes and lady dudes: The Pee-Wee’s Playhouse Christmas special is now streaming on Netflix!!* Get on that ASAP.
* – Actually, it looks like the entire series is streaming!
And this isn’t even the Worst/Best Brosnan Bond (aka Die Another Day):
The Star Wars Holiday Special is something of an important tradition around the Funky Carter offices. I realize, however, that not everyone shares my enthusiasm for endless scenes of Wookie growling, Bea Arthur singing, and Harvey Korman sucking. So this year, I’m sharing with you something much more succinct and entertaining. Please enjoy this compilation of every commercial from the original (and only) broadcast of the Holiday Special.
I don’t really need to add anything to this one.
