Merry Christmas

I really like this hat.

I’ve had this hat on display in my cubicle for about a month.

Most people think it’s funny, but can’t put into words why.

Luckily, I can

The hat, which appears to be disdainful of Christmas is actually very Christmassy. While appearing to be dire, the very display of it shows a certain degree of jubilance. Honestly, a true scrooge would not display anything, but to take something of such an obvious Christmassy form and darken it with such a traditional anti-Christmas slogan is so celebratory that it is very much anti-scrooge.


About wilogden

Wil Ogden was destined to be a wastrel but thwarted fate. During his second junior year in high school he discovered he had a muse and a talent for writing. Despite taking almost a decade to complete a bachelor's degree by changing majors eleven times, he managed to grow up. Along the way he worked as a blacksmith, a record store manager, a candy store manager, too many years in food service, a four year stint in the USAF, and finally settled down into Information Technology, which he uses to pay the bills and support his family of himself, his wife, son, seven daughters, two dogs, three cats, six chickens, a snake, a ferret and two parakeets.
