It’s Enough to Make Me Holler, “Bah, Humbug!”

The Masked Morons have spoiled much of 2020. Now they’ve set their sites on Christmas with—I kid you not—ornaments in the shape of muzzles and a pathetic pun: “We Wish You a Merry X-Mask.” And I write as one who adores word-play! But this example offends, and grossly.

Roland Walkenhorst sent me news of this atrocity: he writes, “Pardon me if I decline to mark our savior’s birth by hanging an oxygen-deprivation ornament.”

I seldom wish evil on an entrepreneur (that’s why we have government, after all), but in this case I’m hoping Mr. Walkenhorst’s is the usual reaction.
