Chris, great song! I heard a funny Christmas song today, too. It was something about shotgun shells on the Christmas tree (they were the ornaments).

Jake said...

ARGH! I can't believe I forgot that song as well! It might be up on the Bob Rivers site like the others.

I don't know if it's on there or not but the one I heard wasn't by him.

Jake said...

Yup, it's there.
