A Merry Little Christmas Monologue

Creative Minority Report posted this yesterday, and last year, too, and I love it…loved it last year when I saw it.

The funniest thing, for me, is that my husband really does call people a communist for holding certain opinions: What? You don’t like apple pie? Communist! You put only white lights on your Christmas tree? Communist! You think Vince Lombardi was an ogre? Communist!

My older boys have picked it up, and they routinely call each other communists for having disagreeing thoughts on anything. They have little idea what it really means. I should teach them the retort:

What? Are you saying that I stand in line for toilet paper?

  1. “The funniest thing, for me, is that my husband really does call people a communist for holding certain opinions: What? You don't like apple pie? Communist! You put only white lights on your Christmas tree? Communist! You think Vince Lombardi was an ogre? Communist! “

    Is this a military thing? We do this, too. Gary is especially fond of calling people communists for things of this nature.

  2. That's great stuff! I do like the come backs of the officer. “I wear big fuzzy hats?”

  3. OK — we're NOT a military family and my husband has said this enough that our kids pick up on it too. “You don't like broccoli? You know who doesn't like broccoli…communists!” etc.

    We did have to explain it to them because they get very strange looks when they say that outside the family. ; )

  4. HILARIOUS! So glad you shared it because I am hit or miss with CMR. (I am NOT hit or miss with Rosetta Stone, though. Not EVER.)

    🙂

  5. My husband and I think it's Communist to only have white lights on Christmas trees, too.

  6. Yes, and instead of nutcrackers, they decorate with dolls that fit inside larger dolls.

    My 11 yo son has the commie retort part of the monologue memorized. We've watched it a half dozen times because it makes us laugh every.single.time.

  7. Funny! Though I've never heard this before.

  8. “Then you are a Communist”
    Certainly, the logic there is undeniable.

  9. Thanks for posting this. Tom is in a bad mood trying to get the darn printer to work and I made him stop and watch this. He laughed. His favorite line is the one about the toilet paper.

    And, no, our Christmas tree lights are NOT white. 🙂
