Ms. Waxy Dragon
Autumn the Puppy
Here we are once more, Ms. Waxy Dragon and Autumn the Puppy, to discuss more fun Christmas Carols.

WAXY: So, I'm Getting Nothing For Christmas?
AUTUMN: WHAT? Since when?
WAXY: No, that's a Christmas song originally recorded by a group known as The Peter Pan Players.
AUTUMN: Oh. Well then, we definitely have to include All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth by Spike Jones and His City Slickers.
Special Delivery Charges May Apply.
WAXY: Then, I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas.
AUTUMN: Be reasonable. It would never fit down the chimney.
WAXY: No. That's a song first recorded by Gayla Peevey.
AUTUMN: I was just kidding. But I wonder how the song would sound if it was recorded by Pauley Perrette?
WAXY: You mean the actress who plays Abby on NCIS? That would be interesting, since her character has a stuffed hippo named Bert on the show.
AUTUMN: Well, All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey should definitely be on the list.
WAXY: Oh? Is there a special someone in your life?
AUTUMN: There could be, if Snoopy ever returns any of my e-mails. Meanwhile, there are so many more songs to consider.
WAXY: I know. Like the whole soundtrack to How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
AUTUMN: Definitely the original animated special. All the song lyrics were written by Dr. Seuss himself and sung by Thurl Ravenscroft.
WAXY: The original voice of Tony the Tiger for Kellogs.
AUTUMN: "You're A Mean One, Mister Grinch!"
WAXY: "Christmas Time is within our grasp, so long as we have hands to clasp."
AUTUMN: That reminds me. We also have to include the music from A Charlie Brown Christmas.
WAXY:  I have the Vince Guaraldi Trio CD and play it every December.
AUTUMN: Me too. Especially the Peanuts theme: Linus and Lucy.
WAXY: What else should we plan to play?
AUTUMN: Like you said last week. There's just so much good Christmas music. Like White Christmas by Bing Crosby. The Little Drummer Boy by the Vienna Boys Choir.
WAXY: Santa Baby.
AUTUMN: Definitely the Eartha Kitt original for that one.
WAXY: Agreed.
AUTUMN: Let's just grab all our Christmas CDs and take them to the party.
WAXY: Okay.
AUTUMN: So join us here next Sunday folks for The Free Choice E-zine's annual Christmas Party, right here on The Sunday Funnies!
WAXY: Have a great week everyone, and don't get run over by any reindeer!
