Carols for the worn, weary and wigged outBy


Terre Haute, IN —

These times are tough, no doubting

Our job growth’s at a stop

Yet we’re all patriotic souls

We’ll shop until we drop

(To the tune of “Silent Night”)

Silent night, peaceful day

Everything is now OK

’Round yon Wendy’s and Burger King

From the speakers, no more they sing

Carols, Yule tides and elves’ tunes

Christmas is over, at last
