Yesterday I went shopping for garbage cans for the company that I work for. I went to two Walmarts before I found what I wanted at Lowes. At my second Walmart, which is a SUPER Walmart I was greeted by a 4 ft tall BLACK Santa Claus, and that I noticed as I was leaving. As I was walking through the store I had to endure a huge Garth Brooks in a Cowboy Hat banner sign. Behind Garth there was the better Destiny Child banner sign, followed by the really fugly banner sign of ---- yikes ++++ Queen Latifah. Sheesh, and I was just looking for some garbage cans. So after I walked what seemed a few city blocks, I was finally near the back of the store, still NOT finding the garbage cans. So there I was walking towards the electronics area when what to my shock do you think I saw??????


Keep guessing!


To my utter disbelief and horror I passed a large fake deer head wallmount which was singing SWEET HOME ALABAMA!!! The only saving grace in it for me was that it was not being sung by Ronnie Van Zant, and it wasn't a Skynyrd performance. But it was SHA. Geez. How does sh!t like that happen? What is next, a deer singing Freebird? Anyway, I just kept on walking. The deer probably sings quite a few tunes. Maybe it sings Simple Man and Gimme Three Steps.

I saw those. It also plays Garth Brooks, Friends In Low Places; Willie's, On THe Road Again, The Rawhide Theme, and 3 or 4 more.

I thought it was kinda funny. $99 by the way.

Black Santa is a further stretch than a Black Jesus. Jesus was a Middle Easterner, Santa was a Northern European, historically speaking.

I don't have a problem with someone portraying them as black, as long as the message gets through. If the kids connect, it's all good. That's what's important.

And Destiny's Child is just as commercially crass as Garth Brooks

The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in Patara, a village in what is now Turkey.

NOT northern europe.

Actually, given the two, I would rather endure Destiny's Child. Beyonce is a fine looking woman, and there are those other two Destiny chicks. Now who are they? And really, the Black Santa just strikes me as commercialism pandering to the black population. And then too, if the St. Nicholas' legacy, which morphed into a White Santa, began in Turkey, where darker skinned people live, then I guess a darker skinned Santa Clause might even be more of an accurate representation. And a Black Jesus bothers me less, and probably because I've already absorbed the notion that Jesus may indeed have been dark skinned. And I really don't much care if Jesus was black, because I'm not much of a Christian. But then too Black Jesus was not greeting and bidding me farewell at the WalMart front door. But there seems to be quite a bit of racial tension here in Jacksonville, FL, or even the South. I work with people who come from up North who are surprised by the behavior down here.

When I saw the Black Santa at the front of the store my first thought was NOT, "Well it's about time." Maybe some black people down here are cheering inside as they pass Black Santa. Probably they are quite amused and comforted by Black Santa, and even Black Jesus. It was almost like a political statement though, Black Santa at the FRONT DOOR of the store. No doubt Black Santa is a marketing tool. Somebody is making a statement, either Walmart, or a manager at Walmart. As far as the population is gauged here in Jacksonville, Black Santa has just as much of a place at the front of the store, as does Lily White Santa. Still, it was like entering into a controversy just walking through the door. So here I am now venting my reaction to Black Santa and the other Banner signs, and not to forget the singing deer. I hate to think I'll remember the season this way, but I think I will remember that trip, that TRIP!, to WalMart.

Jumpin' Jupiter that sounds like that was a long strange Trip you had to wally world.

I wonder what Jon Boy thinks about the need fer greed?

...a lot of people do not
know that the WALtons started that store after the Goverment thru them off
of their mountain
The money mizers then took almost all the little tab of money they had.

The GrandPa made MoonShine & Jim BoB was a driver..
.They ended up with Ikes store after the woman he married drove him craZy & from there the rest is history.

Of course the
waltons ended up having to sell out when the feds busted GrandPa & Jim BoB for growing & selling Weed. The local Yokels boycotted the store.
Then they tar & Feathered Jon boy
and ran the family out of town.

A Black Santa i can dig it..
.does he say "Hoe,HOE,HOE" ?

My late great Moma gave us a set of Santas of the world B4 she died.
We have about 50 little Santas.

They are abour 4inches tall in every color
& race from all over the world

And that gives me a good idea & an answer on what color JESUS was/IS

He IS Red/Yellow/Black/White & every color in between

Hadn't you ever hEARd that song "JESUS LOVES THE little CHILDren"

iT goes sumthang like this hEAR:
"JESUS was a little child
RED/YELLOW/BLACK & WHITE
Let me tell ya' he is outsight
He iz the Soulman SuperStar of the world"

And to all a GOod DaY
fer i am on mY way
to eat Thanksgiving Dinner


LaTeR GaToR
there a GaToR in the bushes & he iZ a callin' mY Name

I hope he iZ a nice AL E Gator..
.that is his name
AL E. GATOR

mY PaL AL
he ain't heavy
He iz mY BROther


Does anyone know whether or not WAL-Mart iz open today?
I bet if they are open the bIg SH!Ts are not there....

They have taken all the money to "Cut & RuN" Home to eat ,drink & be Merry !


Over the last few years more & more stores decided to jump start
the day after Thanksgiving Shopping frenzy by being open on Thanksgiving

Which would really suck if you had to work while everyone else was at home with their Loved ones.I know because i have had to work on Thanksgiving.

The only thing worse than that is to be in the military &
not being able to go home at least for the day
I have done that gig TOo.

But that was then this is now
Now i do what i dam well please

Did Walmart have one of those singing fish along side the deer?? What are they called?? Billy Bob singing fish or something like that....they are horrible!!!!

BTW, before purchasing the deer, one would want to count the points to make sure that it was worthy of hanging above the fireplace. God forbid if they had a doe singing the songs.

Was he an original or a tribute deer?

I saw that recently, didn't think of poor Dean's possible reaction.

The fish was Billy Bass.

He sang "Take me to the River" and "Don't Worry, Be happy".

I was hoping the buck would do the "original Tribute tour" version of Freebird.

Instrumental, that is.

Does Walmart sell TY discs?

Well, Excuse me. I was referring to the legendary Kris Kringle, who is portrayed as Santa Claus as we know him today.

Check it out if you care to.

http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/santa.asp

Like I posted, it doesn't matter whether or not Jesus or St. Nick originated in the Middle East. Your average Middle Easterner, or even Turk ain't exactly 'Black', that's the point. What matters is that the message gets through.

That damn fish sang to me in a restaurant for an hour. It was hanging by the wall and everytime somebody walked by it started up again. It was funny at first but...after a while I was looking for the gun. Then it actually got to be funny again once we thought of the people working there. Poor waitress. We tipped her well.

I stop by at my Dad's place on the way back from Vermont. Walk through the door and this damn fish looks at me and starts singing. I thought the damn thing chased me from Vermont to Ontario. Seems one of my Dad's friends dropped it off as a present. (Some present!) Well my Dad just thought it was rather humorous. More so because it was driving me nuts. He can be a funny guy. Not easy being me growing up but that's another story. I am sure many of you can relate.

Well a few years go by. Last Christmas I go to open my present from my Dad. Decent weight. Nice size. I admit I was curious and rather excited. He usually comes up with some awesome presents. I open the gift. Pry the box open and here is that damn fish staring me in the eye singing Take Me To The River.

I may have to grant that fish his request!

It really is astonishing at how few people in the world really have what I consider to be good taste in music. Like Gov't Mule last Sunday night at the New Daisy on Beale St. in Memphis. Now that was awesome. How about if they make a Warren Haynes replica playing a firebird and singing Bad Little Doggie?

LOL!!!!

My sister bought one for my father.

He has hunted, fished, and trapped since he was 10.

We all wanted to steal the batteries after the first day of that thing being in the shop.

Amen to tipping the folks who have to endure that nonsense.

My kids (youngest two are 13 & 15) always set off the mechanical Santa, singing deer, robot parrot, etc. any chance they get.
