Boy! Are Australians ever keen for writing "Twas the Night Before Christmas" variations. Kevin Clark wrote the following one from scratch after getting Wednesday's Texas version and even before he saw Thursday's Australian version.
BTW, I try really hard not to repeat jokes on the CleanLaugh list. There are plenty more Christmas jokes in the CleanLaugh Archives. Just go to
and search for the keyword "Christmas"
So, thanks for the new material Kevin - debuting on the CleanLaugh list even!
"Yet another Night before Christmas" By Kevin Clark
'Twas the week before holidays and on my PC
200 emails for me to see
I got so excited, I fell of my chair
Somebody loves me, somebody cares
But, I should have remembered what happened before
It was the same as last year. Only this time there's more.
I had 200 emails, each with the same theme
It was all way too much, I could almost scream
Every new message had the same first line
"Twas the night before (whatever)" For the 200th time
It seem that each year the creative juices flow
But after hours of typing there's nothing to show.
So we try to remember and suddenly recall
The only Christmas Rhyme that's known to all.
"I'll write a spoof" we say to our self
As we grab the thesaurus from the dusty bookshelf
We write about leftovers that we eat for a week.
We write about shopping and our poor aching feet
There's Christmas in Texas and building the toy house
All sent to cyberspace at the click of a mouse
So how about, this year, we do something strange.
We stop sending emails and talk for a change.
Talk to friends or strangers if you like.
Say "MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT."
