I'm getting on board the Christmas Card idear...

.

A military-themed Christmas Card I snagged from Buck a while back.
(I love the wreath on the jeep.)

Hey y'all!  Hugs, kisses, yada yada yada...

My brother-in-law sent a computer letter with what I think is an excellent idea.  And, being the obnoxious juvenile delinquent that I am...I'm getting on board. Excerpts:

Want to have some fun this CHRISTMAS?  Send the ACLU a CHRISTMAS CARD this year.

As they are working so very hard to get rid of the CHRISTMAS part of this holiday, we should all send them a nice, card to brighten up their dark, sad, little world.  Make sure it says "Merry Christmas" on it.


Two tons of Christmas cards would freeze their operations because they wouldn't know if any were regular mail containing contributions. So spend 44 cents and tell the ACLU to leave Christmas alone.  Just don't be rude, or crude.


You could Gooble the address, but I'll make it easy for you.

American Civil Liberties Union
125 Broad Street, 18th Floor 
New York NY 10004

Yeah, it's not gonna change anything. But, most of them don't have anything much to do around Christmas, so maybe some good employee will get some overtime out of it.

  1. If I put a rock (a Christmas rock, for example) in a package addressed to these fellows, and put their address as the return address, and don't put any postage on the package,
    1. Will it get there?
    2. Will the US Postal Service demand the $9.00 to deliver the goods?

    curious in canada....

  4. I'm in for this. I won't even put any white powder in it this year.

    PS - A customer just had me engrave the name "Brandon Bruneau" on a filet knife. Figger we got some coonassery goin' on?

  5. Glad y'all all like the idea.

    Marc, I must admit that you are an evil genius. Truth is, it wouldn't cost you anything but a box, and a rock to try. Get somebody to drop it off in the States for you...just use latex gloves while assembling your gift.

    Inno...use some of that white Christmas glittery junk instead this year. They'll love it.

    As far as the Bruneau cat...it's possible. If there was an "x" on the back of it, I'd say definitely Coonass. But, there are a bunch of Bruneaus around New Orleans.

    One long-time pol is/was Peppi Bruneau. Here's his wiki deal.

  6. Great idea Andy. I also really like that card you stole from Buck. I'm stealing too for a later post.
