Cul de Sac by Richard Thompson for December 04, 2011
Alice: Petey! Look what I got! Mom said it's too early to get all the Christmas decorations out, but I got to have just one! See? It's a Santa bear! Don't you wish you had a Christmas decoration? Petey: I've already got one, on the ceiling. Alice: Hey! How'd you get tinsel? Petey: I found it under the sofa last year. I taped it to the ceiling yesterday. I call it "the Tinsel of Damocles." It's a scathing commentary on tacky holiday ornaments. Alice: I want some tinsel on my ceiling. Petey: And it's the most festive thing in my room!
