A Veritable Cornucopia

Ahh it's that time of year again. The most special season. Of course, I'm talking about that time of year when they run 24 hours of "A Christmas Story". One of my favorite holiday shows. Who can forget "you'll shoot your eye out". The quotes are so awesome. Surely everybody can relate to the life and times of Ralphie. Who didn't want something for Christmas that their mother thought was too dangerous? Who hasn't had to contend with bullys (well, maybe those that were bullies)? Who hasn't been mesmerized by "the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window"? Okay maybe not that last one.

For those who have been living under a rock for the last several decades. "A Christmas Story" is a movie about a young boy (Ralphie), who is trying to convince his parents that he needs a Red-Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle (with compass in the stock). Narated by an adult Ralphie. It is hilariously funny, but I have noticed that men usually find it a lot funnier than women. As Ralphie, narates the thoughts of a 10 year old, you can't help but think, I've been there!

"Some men were Prodestant, some Catholic, my dad was an Osmobile man." Now that's funny.

If your a die hard fan, you can have your very own "Major Award", just be carefull because it's French.....Fragile....(pronounced Fra gee lay)
