The Insufficency of Humbug - part two

Last night, I ran into this wonderful rant at Atomic Nerds Reader JBrock posted this little ditty this afternoon:
Dashing to the mall
in a fleet of rented trucks,
a million hairless apes are out
to spend some plastic bucks.
It�s Christmas time again
(or maybe World War Three)
and to keep the spirits happy now
we�ve got to kill a tree.

Oh, kill a tree, kill a tree, kill a tree for Christ
(Jolly old St. Nicholas, accept this sacrifice!)
Kill a tree, kill a tree, kill a tree for Christ:
Not sure what we�re doing, but it seems to work out nice.

We each deserve a ton
or two of shiny crap,
but to keep the goodies coming now
we�ve got to spill some sap.
And string electric lights,
and raise the ritual star,
and bribe our friends and fam�lies to
forget what jerks we are.

And kill a tree � (etc.)

We always kill a tree.
That�s always been enough
for videos and GI Joes
and all that kiddy stuff.
But Mommy wants a Hog
and Daddy wants a boat.
That�s prolly gonna cost at least
a chicken and a goat.

But kill a tree � (etc.)
