I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

I just realized it's one of my favorite holidays today! Good Friday! (No, Kidding.)

Coincidentally, it's also PURIM!

Everybody, sing!

Oh, once there was a wicked, wicked man
And Haman was his name sir,
He would have murdered all the Jews,
Though they were not to blame sir

Oh today, we'll merry, merry be
Oh today, we'll merry, merry be
Oh today, we'll merry, merry be
And nosh some hamentaschen

And Esther was the lovely queen
Of King Ahasuerus,
When Haman said he'd kill us all,
Oh my how he did scare us


But Mordecai her cousin bold,
Said what a dreadful chutzpah,
If guns were but invented now
This Haman I would shoot sir


When Esther speaking to the King
Of Haman's plot made mention,
"Ha, ha" said he, " Oh no he won't.
I'll spoil his bad intention."


The guest of honor he shall be
This clever Mr. Smarty.
And high above us he shall swing,
At a little hanging party.


Of all his cruel and unkind ways,
This little joke did cure him,
And don't forget we owe him thanks,
for this jolly feast of Purim.


Nothing as heartwarming as a children's song, about hanging people!

DRINK UP! Spin yer groggers and stomp your feet!
