So far , so good, Nothin'. As far as I'm concerned Christmas is for the kids. If you're old enough to move out, you're to old for it. Of course my mother doesn't agree with that and always gets me a shirt or somethin'. I'll be glad when this shit is over for another year. Oh, by the way....BAH.....HUMBUG.

Some vintage British comedy videos. I moved here 4 years ago and still I'm mystified by the American sense of humor. I guess your national fascination with the custard-pie-in-the-face does have a certain naive charm... maybe it will grow on me in time ?

If it makes you feel any better, many Americans don't "get" British humour, either. I DO 'get it', though. My appreciation of humour is very broad based. And if you were to give another example of what sort of American humour you don't quite 'get', I'll try to explain it from an American perspective. The pie in the face is simply silly. But silly is quite enough to send some people into hysterics. Try watching a Three Stooges marathon when the opportunity arises. By the end of it you'll either get it, or you won't. And if you don't by then, you just never will. CJ

It takes less time for slapstick to grow on you than the dry British humor, ala Monty Python or Mr. Bean. But Benny Hill rules!!!

I had a Charlie Brown christmas. All I got was a rock.

A gun safe, small asorted items, and time with family. Boys are grown and time with them is better than wrapping paper and bows. Wife is grown too, but I see her everyday.[:D] Don't tell her I said that! Oh, yeah, one of the gifts I gave her today was tagged for "She who must be obeyed". She gave me "The Look".[>:/]

from the g/f so far: Galco speedmaster holster for the S&W 19 Dillon pistol cleaning kit (mmmmmm...Dewey rod) I get to open the big box from midwayusa when I get back home to her...

Don't know about Christmas, but last week for my B Day I got a Gibbs Quest Enfield in 308 from my wife. It's pretty cool too.

I wish I'd have seen this thread before I posted my own... my wife got me a Lee turret press kit! [:D]

A Case feeder for my Dillon 650. A CZ-75 .40 Standard IPSC which came with 4 mags, 4 slide stops, a whole bag of recoil buffers and... a 1.75 # trigger pull[:p]. A black bear skull mounted on ebony.[:D] Five pounds of gummy bears. $50.00 gift certificate for Home Depot. Hood deflector for my car. S-video cable for my DVD player. Gloves. Shirt. Shaving stuff. I haven't opened up any of the presents under my tree yet though, so I'll have to add the rest later.

Please explain to me why anyone would find "Mad TV" or "Saturday Night Live" remotely funny... two hours a week of custard pie action would be infinitely more entertaining [;)]

So far shirts, gift certificates and car stuff and some scratch off lottery stuff. Won $10 bucks, but was bought about eight tickets, so I'm not much ahead. My dad crossed the WI state border and bought a few Powerball tickets. Hopefully we'll be able to buy A LOT of presents next year![:D] I gave them the Sinclair catalog a couple weeks ago, so I hope tomorrow there will be some more good loot! I got some cash too from my mom! Cash is good![:D], but it usually means they got my sister something expensive and to keep things even, have to give me some $.
Link Posted: 12/24/2002 8:40:02 PM EDT
I bought myself a pistol. The wife got me a horse hair belt. For the most part I really don't need much but I really like this belt. On the other hand this Christmas cost me a lot of cash, but it makes me happy to give to the people I know that are deserving.

AAAAARRRRGGGHHHHHHHH Contrary to what EVERY American I meet seems to think, most Brits (definitely including me) find Benny Hill to be crude, crass and unfunny. It was a down-market show aimed at the lower classes who lacked the education to understand more than the most base toilet humor. Sorry if this sounds bourgeois or arrogant... I just get tired of being told by Americans that they "love the Brit sense of humor, especially Benny Hill". How would you feel if foreigners kept saying they "love American cuisine, especially Big Macs" ?
Link Posted: 12/24/2002 10:30:59 PM EDT
Hate to tell ya, but McD's dominates the world as far as resturants go. And most British shows that I've seen are droll. Give me Benny Hill and toilet humor anyday.

Well, the folk's are in Europe, and I'm house-sitting the farm. Just me and the mutts; I got them some bones, but I don't think they got me anything. I did find an inexpensive gun safe out with my name on it out in the garage, tho. My girl's been after me to buy her some jewelry. I got her a nice turquoise necklace for her birthday, and tix for two Phish shows for Christmas. But I also got a nice jewelry box, put a candy necklace in it and wrapped it up. If she doesn't decapitate me it'll be hilarious. Sweet Garand. As for British humor, I'm pro-Python, pro-Hill, anti-Mr. Bean. Has anyone ever seen Brain Candy, Kids in the Hall movie? Once you get over the fact that it's a bunch of gay Canadians, it's hilarious. My favorite foreign humor.
