Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Christmas Song

Seeing as the Clamdigger posted a video of one of my favorite Christmas songs all time, I feel it is only fitting that I get into the act and post one of my other favorite Christmas tunes. Who can resist Alvin and the Chipmunks singing “Christmas Don’t Be Late”

LYRICS INCLUDED!!! Alvin & the Chipmunks sing “Christmas Don’t Be Late”

All right you Chipmunks! Ready to sing your song?
-I’ll say we are!
-Yeah!
-Let’s sing it now!
Okay, Simon?
-Okay!
Okay, Theodore?
-Okay!
Okay, Alvin? Alvin? ALVIN!
-OKAY!!!)

Christmas, Christmas time is near
Time for toys and time for cheer
We’ve been good, but we can’t last
Hurry Christmas, hurry fast
Want a plane that loops the loop
Me, I want a hula hoop
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don’t be late.

Okay fellas get ready
That was very good, Simon.
-Naturally.
Very good Theodore.
-Ahhh.
Ah, Alvin, you were a little flat, watch it.
Ah, Alvin. Alvin. ALVIN!
-OKAY.

Want a plane that loops the loop
I still want a hula hoop
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don’t be late.
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don’t be late.

Very good, boys
-Lets sing it again! Yeah, lets sing it again!
No, That’s enough, lets not overdo it
-What do you mean overdo it?
-We want to sing it again!
Now wait a minute, boys
-Why can’t we sing it again?
-[chipmunk chatter]
Alvin, cut that out..Theodore, just a minute.
Simon will you cut that out? Boys…

Do Gender Bending Reindeer Pull Santa’s Sleigh?

I have a question for you, why hasn’t Santa ever gotten lost during his annual trek around the world on Christmas Eve? Well, his reindeer just might be female and don’t mind stopping for directions.

According to Alice Blue-McLendon, a veterinary medicine professor at Texas A&M University who specializes in deer, points to the antlers as evidence. As it turns out, reindeer grow antlers regardless of gender, and most bull males shed theirs before Christmas. This leads to her theory of Santa’s team being comprised of females.

Greg Finstad disagrees. Finstad manages the Reindeer Research Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and he believes that the reindeer that pull Santa’s sleigh are castrated (Ouch) males know as steers.

He argues that female reindeer could not possibly pull Santa’s sleigh because most females would be pregnant and expecting. Bulls would have shed their antlers by Christmas and been tuckered out from rutting season, so that would leave steers as the only likely reindeer to pull Santa’s sleigh.

I have to agree, there’s just no way females are pulling that sleigh. Why do I say this? It’s a guy thing, there’s just no way.  All those toys, at supersonic speed, racing around the world in 24 hours, it’s a job only guys could handle and appreciate.
