Deck The Malign Marsupial

The naughtiest, wickedest, most fearsome marsupial walking the earth today keeps stealing all my favourite festive tunes!

Call me original to the point of being an inspirational conceptual genius, but in the run-up to Christmas, I’d planned a few posts based on my favourite seasonal songs, complete with commentary, biographical notes and no small smattering of sentimentality.

But bugger me if she whipped Wizzard from right under my nose!

And today, Jona Lewie — my second favourite Christmas song of all time!!!

But you’re not having the bloody Wombles, you despicable fiend! You’d only rip the fur from their Beresford-inspired little bodies and poke out their beady eyes with your Mutant Quirk of Downunder Evolution spawned claws as you feigned a pelvic wiggle to their Batt-inspired melodies.

And leave Greg Lake alone. He’s MINE!

Ooh, ooh, ooh! A fight! It's a brave man who takes on the fierce Scottish/Australian furball.

Bernita said...

The horror, the horror!

Scarlet Blue said...

Now surely Val Doonican did a Christmas tune?

Fairy Of A Shrub-Friendly Hogginess
Now hang on — I never said I was taking her on in hand-to-paw combat...

I know, I know — the UK stands to do very badly from the 3073 Milky Way yard sale.

Nice to see you back on your feet after your move to the land of clotted cream and Lib Dem town halls.

And now you come to mention it, I can't think of a single bar of yuletide Doonican, which is odd because of all the people you'd expect to leap on the bandwagon of cheesy Christmas hits, he's surely a top tip.

Ergh, wombles!

Just please don't make me face any carol singing flowerpots and I might make it through the season.

Whirlochre said...

I'll bear that in mind, Sylvia.

Whirlochre said...

Oh, and while I'm at it, I've only just noticed the festively themed Fairyhedgehog.

I should be lynched.

Kerrie said...

I will be having a Wombling Merry Christmas. Uncle Bulgaria was always my favourite and recycled well before it was trendy.
May recommend Bing and Bowie. x

Whirlochre said...

Bing and Bowie, I can certainly coast for — also Bowie and Jagger, which, although not a Christmas record, was certainly out around the right time and thus counts as an honorary festive tune.

heh heh heh

See the furry blog for today's festive special...

Robin S. said...

The Wombles, huh? 1975?

Wow, somehow in Kentucky, I missed that. Go figure!

You and McK havin' a Christmas song war is a scream. (If anybody'd told me back in 1975 that I'd someday have good friends named McKoala and Whirl, I'd have asked them not to Bogart that joint, my friend.) I'm just sayin' - Wombles is right in there, name-wise.

Somehow this video makes the Love Actually movie make a lot more sense. And Eurovision.

Festive Chirpiness Of Hog Wahoo Voila
(That's a Trampoline of Smiley Joy, not a quadruple chin)

My local tattoo emporium is currently offering a Harbinger Of Pain And Suffering motif free with any matching MAM & DAD or Anchor & Miscellaneous Nude Bimbo.

I mention this just in case you don't already have Harbinger Of Pain And Suffering clearly outlined about your ferocious marsupial person.

I insist you research all things Wombloid immediately. That way, you may be safely preoccupied during the forthcoming Cliff celebrations...

The Wombles make all things make more sense. Even the Copenhagen Summit.

Kiersten White said...

I'd just like to chime in with how pleased I am that SOCK takes huge prominence in your word cloud.

Back to the music, then.

Well spotted, Mrs Eagle Eyes.
