Actually, we just hate you

“We really don’t hate the holidays,” says our anonymous foreign-policy elf in Washington, D.C., “just passive-aggressive coworkers.”

Holiday haters?

      The refugee apostrophe moved from its home on “hours” and is now living on “hors.” It’s not surprising; there’s just one letter’s difference between the two . . . hey! Something familiar in that. What?

      (See, I don’t mind making fun of the grammar in the notes. And I don’t mind hearing that it’s five “hours’” room rental only if there is no “of.”)

      Five hours? Five? Seriously?

    • #4.4   WanderingPenguin bang

      Actually (or should I say “to be fair”?), the apostrophe moved from the misspelled “d’oeuvres” to the “hors”. You would only need the apostrophe on “hours” if you did not say “of” immediately following, badly worded though that may be. Think King of the Road. “Two hours of pushin’ broom…”

      Five hours of room rental doesn’t necessarily mean they have the room for five hours, though; it could just as easily mean they took five hours to rent the damn room. They might only have it for 15 minutes. :)

      Damnit, whaddya know. It turns out I DO mind a little bit hearing that it’s only “five hours’” room rental only if there is no “of.” I thought I wouldn’t. I should have stuck with just Hours is to Hors as Iraq is to Iran.

      I spent three hours labor on this a’post’rophe, too. Man!

    I don’t even know if this can be called passive aggressive. I mean, throwing around the “hate” word and justifying the holiday cost with the promise of a hall rental and weenies wrapped in canned dough sounds more like passive threatening. I’m afraid too Foreign Policy People. It sounds like a trick!

      Adding the YouTube accompaniment was ZZ Topilisious! Every lyric parody should be required to provide this kind of supplement. (I plan to immediately break this rule.)

      After I posted the parody, I realized that La Grange was recorded in 1973 (?!??!) and might not be familiar to everyone. The fact that it’s a song about a whore (hors’) house was an added bonus.

      OK, that’s enough liner notes for now, lol.

    Dear Iranian Ambassador,
    There is a vicious rumor going around that Iran is developing WMD.
    I can’t say where it came from or who started it *wink* but the best way to stop it is to just give 25 percent of your oil to AMOCO before the Shock and Awe begins.
    You cannot come to our party as you do not approve of booze and we are serving loin of pork.

      They may all be arseholes but I find that when I read their magazine while flying, the irritating chap sitting next to me (because there’s always an irritating chap sitting next to me on an airplane) WILL NOT talk to me. It’s fantabulous. Almost no one will talk to you on an airplane if you read Foreign Policy–or a biography of Chairman Mao (I just put the book jacket around whatever dreck I’m actually reading).

    I think the Junior League of Greenville are the holiday haters. After all, alcohol will be served.

      Excellent point, CB. They are the foreign policy people. Who knows what kinda funny money they generally try to use.

    To the tune of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”

    We know you hate Christmas;
    We won’t plan on youse.
    We won’t serve
    You hot hors d’oeuvres,
    Or eggnog laced with booze.
    Christmas Eve won’t find you,
    Foreign Policee,
    At our bash on Christmas,
    Lest you R-S-V-P.

    To Silent Night

    Christmas party,
    Don’t be tardy,
    Room is ours,
    Drinks, five hours.
    Round my desk gather,
    Pay your dues here.
    Cash is preferred,
    R.S.V.P. dear.
    One sober driver per car please,
    One sober driver per car.

    Rumor has it,
    You hate this shit.
    Prove them wrong,
    Join the throng.
    Come to the party,
    Shake you booty.
    Moment is now to,
    Show you’re not snooty.
    One sober driver per car please,
    One sober driver per car.

    That should cover us for the 16th. :-)

      I would have posted it later in the day but I didn’t want to duplicate anyone’s tune.
      I suppose there’s nothing wrong with that, I have a limited songbook on Christmas songs though! LOL
      Oh well, a new note will offer new fodder for Dec. 17th.

    i hear that the foreign policy people hate jokes.

    judging from this post- maybe they just don’t get them.

    Pay for a holiday party? I’m already paying with my time. Often, I don’t even have that going for me. Good luck to the pigs in blankets clique.

    As a Foreign Policy Person, I am stealing these Christmas carols to sing at our Foreign Policy Person Christmas Party. It won’t last five hours, though.
