Need a fun last-minute gift for the humorous set?

beer tree

Brett Berk: Wondering what to get that special parent in your life for the holidays? Well, if you gave them one of those easy-to-install childproof deadbolts for the outside of their kid's room last year, and they've got nightstand drawers full of earplugs and sleeping pills, and you've already purchased a copy of "The Gay Uncle's Guide to Parenting," you could do worse than make them one of these. What the hell is it (aside from a waste of $4.99 and a trip to 7-11)? Well, it's apparently what's known in parts of the Middle West as "A Singing Christmas Tree," and it's as easy to make as marinated cheese.

Alls you do is cover a round piece of cardboard -- like from an old pizza box -- in tin foil, take the 12-pack out of its bird-asphyxiating plastic holsters and put it all in a pretty sack (along with some holiday cheer). Then you trail the whole kit over to the recipient's house, barge in, and let them know you've gotten them a gift. When they ask what it is, you place the silvery disc on their kitchen counter and tell them, "It's a Singing Christmas Tree."

You then remove the cheap swill from your bag one can at a time, forming a diminishing pyramidimical trio of round beer tiers atop the silvery disc, all the while murdering some jolly tune like "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," "Good King Wencelaus" or "I Don't Know How to Love Him." The best part? When you're done crooning and you've recovered from the ball-peen hammer injuries your hosts are likely to inflict, you can immediately begin chugging. It's a gift that gives itself.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

Howdy, I simply hopped over on your web site by the use of StumbleUpon. Not something I might most often read, but I favored your emotions none the less. Thanks for making something worth reading.

You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and very huge for me. I’m having a look forward in your subsequent post, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!

Can easily someone explain what the author meant in his past paragraph? He makes an awesome start but lost me halfway through the article. I had difficulty following what the author is looking to say. First was great but personally i think he needs to use writing a better summary.
