Mercurial Saturnalianism???

So we're seeing all sorts of comments about Mercury and Saturn in the Comments posting and also in the Mailbag. Where did this come from? I don't remember any mention of these two fellas in previous years.

Is there some sort of Christmas-is-a-Pagan-Conspiracy potboiler out there this year or something?

Toys For the World

Some very very rich carolers came by and sang this to us:

Tune: Joy to the World, with new lyrics by Cliff Tasner

Toys for the world are made by kids
And not by elves at all!
We work them night and day
For very little pay.
And little tiny hands
Make all your fav'rite brands
That fill up the shelves in every shopping mall.

Toys for the world that Santa brings
So your sweet kids can play...
What's underneath your tree
Is our economy.
And all those girls and boys
Who make you're children's toys
Are not getting squat from us on Christmas Day!
They're not getting squat from us on Christmas Day!
