3 Presents? Not Enough!

Well, this wraps up our Christmas special. (We hope you’ve enjoyed it, because we didn’t get you anything else.) This final piece ties into what Christmas is really about…consumerism! All kidding aside (yeah right), we hope everyone can take all the happy feelings they’ve felt for mankind this holiday season and translate them into actual lasting appreciation for your fellow man. That would be swell.

Happy F’in new-year while we’re at it,
Jeff and Elliott

Dear Jeff and Elliott,

I’m worried that my kids were more concerned with their presents this Christmas than anything else. How do I get them to be less materialistic?

“3 Presents? Not Enough!”

Dear Bamboozled,

Let’s play a little game called “follow the leader”
You’ve got to set an example now
Get rid of all of the useless crap in your house

Now start donating money to charity
If someone else has less than you
Then you’ve got more than you need

I’m not trying to go all “communist/hippie”
But hopefully you know by now
It’s a materialistic society

So, make sure your children learn from you
None of us deserve what we’ve got, but we’re lucky that we do
