Merry Christmas, You Scumbags

Posted By on Fri, Dec 21, 2012 at 5:25 PM


As we do every year, we leave you with The Pogues and "The Fairytale of New York" — the best Christmas song ever written — as we head into long Christmas weekend. (If you haven't read the backstory to the tune before, do so right now. Yes, it was predictably messy.)

Barring moments of surprising sobriety or boredom, we probably won't talk to you again until Wednesday. Be safe out there until then.
