Dear Dr. Christmas:
Is it really better to give than to receive? – Ebenezer
Yes, it is better to give than to receive, but only if kicks and punches are being exchanged. Otherwise, as we all know perfectly well, it is almost always much better to receive than to give – especially when presents are involved.
The next time some sanctimonious fool tells you that it is better to give than to receive, ask him to hand over his wallet – then watch the hypocrite squirm and stammer out some embarrassingly self-serving excuse about “the spiritual meaning of such admonitions.” Now you know why my favorite insect is the hum bug.
Enjoy Christmas Morning –
