    This was posted by Chefann over in the joke thread - it seems appropriate here for some reason.

    Just got this from a friend.

    The First Christmas Joke of the Season!

    Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

    "In honor of this holy season" Saint Peter said,"You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven."

    The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. "It represents a candle", he said.

    "You may pass through the pearly gates" Saint Peter said.

    The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, "They're bells."

    Saint Peter said "You may pass through the pearly gates".

    The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women's panties.

    St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, "And just what do those symbolize?"

    The man replied, "These are Carol's."

    Actually, many of the items on the list aren't strictly carols. Carols are religious songs.

    And your hint helps me not. Not one bit.

    There's a cool version of the 12 Days of Christmas called "A Musicological Journey Through the 12 Days of Christmas" that uses that piece as the tune for 9 Ladies Dancing.

    The verses are all cool, though. 7 swans is based on The Swan by Saint-Saens; 8 maids is Ride of the Valkyrie; 12 drummers is a Sousa march. And they're all in chronological order. :D (It's a music geek thing.)

    I'd love to hear that one because, like my father before me, I just HATE the 12 Days of Christmas. Maybe I'm just sick of it after being subjected to all the creative variations of it for so many years. YUK!

    So, I love the parodies. My favorites have been by Allen Sherman, the Muppets, and one that I can't identify the group that made it but I love it anyway. All through the performance, a delivery guy shows up at the door, at the appropriate time, with the named gift for one of the chorus members.

    By the end of the song, the studio is full of cackling hens, squawking fowl, tap dancing sound effects, drummers drumming, milk squirting into pails with mooing cows and a conductor on the edge of insanity.

    Best line: The delivery man comes in with the three French hens and says, "Da plot thickens with a shipment of chickens!"

    There's a recording of it by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I've got it, because my choir sang it with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

    I also posted the lyrics to a great 12 Days version in the humor thread.

    That may be the one - and I saw your parody in the joke thread.

    Some friends of mine are in a show choir here. Last may, they did a rendition of the William Tell Overture. A vocal group? Yup - "Buda bum buda bum buda bump bump bump!" I don't know how they got through it without losing it.

    Coffee is good, pennywhistles are nice, but I'm a trepak kinda guy.

    (Oh, how I wish I could dance like that!)

    Actually, coffee is haunting.
     
Have something to add?
