injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

.
A new i-Pad app for the Guinness Book of World Records…

And just in time to honor 74-year old Canadian, Jean-Guy Laquerre, for his collection of Santa Claus memorabilia, making him a jolly fellow indeed this Christmas.  At 25,189 items, his is the largest such collection in the world.

Laquerre, who has been collecting Santa items since 1988, displays his collection every year from December 15th to January 15th at his Montreal home.   Don’t think of just dropping by though.   It’s by invitation only.   But if you show up dressed as Santa, I bet he’d make an exception.

I wouldn’t go dressed as this Santa though…

In the U.K., a men’s fashion shop known for its creative Christmas window displays has some covering their eyes this year at the sight of an animated transvestite Santa who lifts his skirt to reveal stockings and garters. 

The store admits that it has garnered a lot of attention, not all of it good, but calls it “just a quirky spin on Christmas,” and says, “It wasn’t meant in bad taste.”

What do you think?  Just jolly good fun or you’ve jolly well gotta be kidding?

Speaking of garters…

While in some states, below-the butt jeans can get you fined, in New York, officials are cracking down on conspicuous cracks with billboards like this one.


But fear not.  Lovers of the droopy drawers look can still swagger their sag without worrying about popping out the whole package with "Subs," a new garter belt for men.  Moms of teenage boys who are tired of nagging them to pull up their pants will love this little part garter belt, part suspenders device that transforms their baggy-assed kid into someone they’d almost want to be seen with. 

At a mere $30, I think it has “stocking stuffer” written all over it.

Continuing with our holiday theme, a big Merry Christmas to our gay and lesbian troops…


On Saturday, the Senate followed the lead of the House by voting 65 to 31 to finally end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” thus finally bestowing on all of our troops the dignity and respect they deserve.  Since I rarely have anything nice to say about Republicans, and in the spirit of the season, let’s give it up for the six GOP Senators who bucked their party to do the right thing:  Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Scott Brown (R-Mass), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and George Voinovich (R-Ohio).

And to John McCain who led the fight against the repeal to the very end, “You sir, are a steaming pile of shit.”

Of course we can’t expect too much out of the Party of No.  File this under coal in your stocking…

This week the Republicans blocked passage of a lousy $7 billion dollar bill that would have provided medical care for the 9/11 first responders who are now dying of illnesses connected to their bravery on our nation’s saddest day. 


Can’t afford it, the GOP said.   So let’s see, sick and dying 9/11 heroes, go fuck yourselves.   But $700 billion in tax cuts we can’t afford for people who don’t need them?   No problem.

This decision was so shameful that even pundits at Fox News told the Republicans that they sucked.  I know.  I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it either, so here’s the clip and it's well worth watching.

And finally, who doesn't love a bunch of cute animals singing "Deck The Halls..."


May your Christmas be merry and bright...
