Q: Can you please tell me how to cancel my JPG+.

A: Do you know?

OK, OK, OK, while sitting in front of my iBook screen with Photo Booth on, holding my iPad 2, and clicking a photo I got this idiotic idea to send the photo to Picnik to add some Holiday highlights in a foolish effort to create a Happy Holiday Card worthy of my favorite line from Tropic Thunder: “I know who I am. I’m a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.”

I know what you’re thinking…He’s sending out a Happy Holiday card before Thanksgiving? How gauche…but honest…it’s not my fault…blame it on JPG…after all, they’re the ones that placed the Communication photo challenge before Thanksgiving Day instead of before Christmas Day.

Some of my favorite quotes for the Holidays…

"An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day." Irv Kupcinet

"I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land." John Stewart

“One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly." Andy Rooney

“The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.” George Carlin

“Let's be naughty and save Santa the trip.” Gary Allen

"Christmas and the New Year are actually two holidays. So there is a plural, which in the English language, necessitates the use of 's.' I suppose you could say 'Merry Christmas' and 'Happy New Year,' but you probably have shit to do." Jon Stewart, on Bill O'Reilly's objection to "Happy Holidays"
