Merry Christmas you suckers

Post by Rincewind » Sat Dec 18, 2010 6:30 am

Merry Christmas you suckers:

Merry Christmas you suckers, you miserable men
That old festive season is with you again
You'll be spending your money on cartloads of junk
and from here to New Year, you'll be drunk as a skunk

Merry Christmas you suckers, it's perfectly clear
that you fall for it all a bit sooner each year
If it goes on like this, you will find pretty soon
you're singing "White Christmas" as early as June

This Christmas card racket will cost you a packet
Each season it seems to expand
The cards are so clever, though nothing whatever
to do with the subject in hand

You'll be taking the kids 'round to multiple stores
to be frightened to death by some old Santa Claus
Then it's parties with spirits and vino and beer
Merry Christmas you suckers, and a happy New Year

Merry Christmas you suckers, you bleary eyed lot
You'll never get rid of that headache you've got
but I hope you feel splendid, you certainly should
with your stomachs distended with turkey and pudd

Merry Christmas you suckers, jump into your cars
Roar off to your neighbors to sink a few jars
Though your vision is double, just keep smiling through
There are others in trouble a lot worse than you

Beyond any question, acute indigestion
will plague you and make you unwell
You won't take the warning, you'll wake up each morning
undoubtedly feeling like hell

But stick to it suckers, go swallow a pill
for this is the season of peace and good will
While we patiently wait for that nuclear blast
Merry Christmas you suckers, it may be your last
Sapient Pearwood?

It's a quote.... maybe he's quoting Lightning?

Actually, anyone notice how Rincewind showed up right around the time Lightning vanished? :wink:

I think Lightning was holding back when he was known as Lightning. I have bad feelings about this.

why do I bother?

Taken from the hugely informative Officially Unofficial 3DO Zone Forum FAQ:
19. Who was Lightning?
a. Lightning was Trip Hawkins’ son and we miss him dearly.

Why do I have the feeling that the FAQ is going to eventualy be cross refrenced in 80% of the posts and I am going to do the roflcopter everytime. :)

I'm hoping to have a code for each event like the Police have. Eventually it will be: Guys we got code 21a and code 23a going down, quickly, launch the roflcopter. Dispatch Experience, repeat dispatch experience to thread.

I must see if I can get TJHooker uniform in my size from eBay. :)

Just wait for the day that Wikipedia says that Trip's son used to troll our forums under the name Lightning.
