Newsy Newsy Christmas

Christmas ElfFor news folks, Christmastime is the absolute worst.  There’s snow, traffic, crowded shopping centers, Christmas lights, and not much else.  Government officials are hard to come by, so that story on that Turd Tax proposed by the Sewage Control Board will have to wait till the calendar turns.  The education beat is nothing but fluff.  If you’re lucky, some thugs will mug an inflatable Santa overnight and your crime team can jump on that.

And let’s not even talk about working while everyone else is getting smashed on alcoholic egg juice.

So to lighten the mood, and bring a little joy to newsrooms everywhere, I bring you, Newsy Newsy Christmas. (Think Burl Ives)  And Merry Christmas.

Have a newsy, newsy Christmas
It’s the worst time of the year
It’s fo sho that there’ll be snow
so pack your rainy gear
Have a newsy newsy Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say Hey-Hey to Pookie and Ray
And folks on the Street Beat
Oh ho
The mistletoe
Hung from your belt loop
Tell the boss to kiss you
Right down where you poop
Have a newsy newsy Christmas
And in case you didn’t hear
Oh by golly
There’ll be no newsroom raises
Next year.
