Well, I'm happy to tell you that the folks at Proud To Be A Little Bit Canadian, Sometimes are missing no opportunity to get involved in the vividly brutal, horrific, bloody campaign that is The War Against Santa Claus (or something like that). To question their bravery on the grounds that all that is likely to happen to them in the course of this "war" is that someone might wish them "Happy Holidays," and they're not going to be, you know, shot at or anything like that, would be churlish. And against the spirit of the Holidays. Ahem. Anyway, they've published a list of businesses that are either "for" or "against" their relatively narrow definition of "Christmas." And here it is:

Pro-Christmas Stores

* The Bay
* Rona Home Centre
* London Drugs
* SaskTel
* Jenny Craig
* World Vision

Anti-Christmas Stores

* Wal-Mart
* Home Outfitters
* Sears
* Shoppers Drug Mart
* Michaels
* Home Depot
* Thrifty's
* Canadian Tire
* Royal Canadian Mint
* Canada Post
* (Canwest Global)
* Best Buy
* Future Shop
* The Source-Circuit City
* Office Depot
* PharmaSave
* Dell Computers
* Countrywide Furniture
* Wal-Mart
* Real Canadian Superstore
* Zellers

The Royal Canadian Mint?!?!?!??? "What is the world coming to?" one asks in disbelief. I mean, how the fuck are you going to boycott the Royal Canadian Mint? Ah well, I suppose it doesn't matter to most of the PTBC crowd, since their mothers buy their groceries anyway... For the record, the RCM's major crime against Christmas is to have a link on their front page to "Holiday Gift Ideas." Ah, I foresee that the near future holds near-record levels of conservative anal retention.

The rest of PTBC today is far too dismally stupid to waste time on, without the benefits of unintentional hilarity, as usual.
