Default "A Christmas Carol" from Tom Naughton?

...or How Tiny Tim’s Diet Got Scrooged

Here's a snippet...
It began with an aging politician snoring in his bed on Christmas Eve …


“Woooooooh! Woooooooooh! ”

ZZZZZ – !!

“What? What’s that noise? Is somebody there?”

“Yes, Senator McGovern, somebody is there. And I’ve come for you. Woooooooh!”

“Hey! Enough with the Wooooooh, stuff, okay? I was a bomber pilot in the war. I’m not afraid of ghosts.”

“You will be. Woooooooh!”

“Oh yeah? Well, if you’re a ghost, whose ghost are you?”

“Richard Milhous Nix—“

Frank, great post! Very humorous (or not). I live in Cleveland, and this poor kid was ripped right out of his family because he is obese. Really? Many people are up in arms about this. Especially since he does live in a poor area, and if they are receiving any type of assistance, they can only buy "cheap" food that tends to be starches because you can stretch them out longer for meals. And I'm sure the Mom was following doctor's orders to feed him low-fat, calorie-restrictive diet. Perhaps I should seek this Mom out and introduce her to this forum where she can truly find help for her obese son. Then she will have a fighting chance of helping her son become healthier and trimmer. It is sad.
