…or just Jewish.

December 23rd, 2008 · 60 comments

Writes Alex in Denver: “Last year, my roommate Luke got frustrated that our undecorated tree was still sitting in the basement on Christmas Eve. We decided to get retribution by moving the tree into his room.”

I think it's funny that it's X-Mas Eve and we still haven't put up our X-mas tree...God...we're either really lazy, or just Jewish. -Luke

Happy Hannukah, everyone!

      SRSLY? Did you not see the thing that told you not to post “First!”? Or are you just the kid that’s confused by missing candy canes. Seriously, man. Not cool.

      Or maybe I’m confused by missing candy canes with that missing question mark, there. :/

    Is Luke quadriplegic, or can he only enjoy Christmas if somebody else does the decorating?

      Dogs aren’t very useful when it comes to putting up the Christmas decorations with the whole opposable thumbless-ness and all.

      The patience and boundless love of a (lol)Dog makes as strong a case as any other theology to Luke. ” The Book of Luke and the parable on the snausages and bones.”
      Just sayin’.

    They don’t have a fireplace, so when Santa comes down the chimney he’ll end up in the basement.

    Using his immense power in the Force, young Luke Treehumper decorates a X-mas tree without his roommates’ help. It is not until Luke’s mission is completed that he finds out that he is, in fact, a lil Jewish. His real father’s name is Mort Veyder. Luke is heartbroken. Never will he decorate a tree again.

    I feel sorry for Luke. He is desperately trying to become closer with the other guys in the house, and thinks that this little joke will make him look witty and cool. Poor Luke, he’s the guy that runs out to the living room with a Scrabble board, asking for high-fives while the “real guys” chug beer and make fun of his lisp.

    Or maybe not.

    Oh yeah. Eighth! High five!!

    So was this a live tree or a plastic tree? If it’s a live tree, the man has a point. If it’s a fake tree, he just needs to give it up and wait until next year.

    I was going to run with that one, M-A. Then I Googled. Luke was Greek (and I guess Christian, but am not enough of a theologian to really know). I guess the thing is that the gospels were written after the event, and by that time I don’t know if the writers still called themselves Jewish or Christian or other? Mark was Roman. Matthew and John were Jewish, I think… but – Troy McClure or Wade, where are you? Clarification needed.

    I’m sure anyone can help. Sorry for the ignorance here.

    :oops: Should be giggle-braxed under #14

    And, happy holidays to you, to Morph ♥

      I was going to run with the whole Matthew, Mark, Luke and John thing. I’m glad I read all the comments before making a lame joke like: Luke doesn’t know it, but they are waiting for Matthew, Mark and John to join them for holiday decorating!

      You’d have to ask Alex about that. Maybe inbetween conquering the Persian Empire? (I know, I know, my times are way out).

      Also, I just googled, could be wrong, though it seems wiki (needs citation) supports me.

    Luke needs to have a long talk with his parents if he doesn’t know if he’s Jewish or not.
    A peek in his own pants, while not definitive, could be a starting point.

    Jews put up Christmas trees but they do it after Christmas because that’s when they can get a really good deal.

      Damn, I was pretty much writing out the same exact thing when I saw your post, Claw.

      How about… You can always tell a Jewish Christmas tree because all the ornaments still have their tags on them for easy store returns.

    T’was the day before Christmas and all through the unit, no decortations were up because no one felt like doing it.

    Luke got frustrated and posted a note, but the roommates all laughed at the message he wrote.

    So they waited ’til evening, when Luke was asleep and did horrible things to the crabby creep.

    Mike peed in his earhole, John spat in his mouth
    Rhonda shaved all the hair that grew way down south

    Luke stirred when they raped him with a candy cane, but returned to his slumber and moaned the name Blane.

    They took all his laundry, the dirty and pressed
    and gave it to the hobo so he could be well-dressed.

    Then they called Luke’s mother and told her this fact: Luke stole all her savings so he could buy crack.

    When Luke awoke he felt like he’d died. There was poop in his slippers and a tree by his side.

    His roommates had left, but a note was in view

    handle Christmas yourself!
    love, your flatmates–the jews.

    Now, I’m wondering if Luke’s roomies put up a Festivus pole the day before. Maybe the Feats of Strength and Airing of Grievances are so similar to his everyday life that Luke didn’t even notice it was Festivus…
