COMICS
Here’s to good intentions. DC Comics has announced that the comic book giant will be releasing a new parody series based on Jesus Christ through the companies DC Vertigo line. The adult graphic novel was written by Mark Russell with artwork created by Richard Pace and will arrive on store shelves on March 6, 2019.

A far cry from earlier religious comics from Spire in the 1970's, this new one will be tried out as a limited series but could becoming a regular one if it becomes popular. Second Coming is described by DC as follows:

“Witness the return of Jesus Christ, as He is sent on a most holy mission by God to learn what it takes to be the true messiah of mankind by becoming roommates with the world’s favorite savior: the all-powerful super hero Sun-Man, the Last Son of Krispex! But when Christ returns to Earth, he’s shocked to discover what has become of his gospel—and now, he aims to set the record straight.”

What is the Most Annoying Christmas Song Ever?

Everyone has that one holiday song that drives them crazy and it's usually the one song that everyone else in the world seems to love. Last year I made the bold statement that I thought that the "Christmas in the Northwest" by Brenda Kutz is the most annoying song ever. If you live outside of Washington or Oregon, you may not have had a chance to hear this earworm-inducing treasure (and you are lucky), but I had many people come to the defense of this "holiday classic."

This year, I would like to nominate the Irving Berlin song, "Happy Holidays/The Holiday Season" by Perry Como. It features such priceless lyrics like:
"The Holiday season, with the whoop-de-do and hickory dockAnd don't forget to hang up your sock, ‘Cause just exactly at 12 o’clockHe’ll be coming down the chimney, down"
Yeah, that must have taken Berlin weeks to write. I suspect that "Whoop-de-do" and "hickory dock" were just place holders until he got something better - but he never did.

So, what is that one song that drives you crazy every time you hear it? Place your comments here. Come on - let's get this party started!

(There is a lot of chatter on Facebook for the following songs: Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas, Santa Baby, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer, Mary Did You Know, Christmas Shoes...what are we missing?)
