ODO 85: I Wish You An Odd Christmas

Published by Odd Dad Out on

Since Christmas is coming up next week, and the news has a serendipitous way of picking my show themes, this week I’m talking all about Christmas. Around Our house we don’t exactly do “Christmas.” We celebrate Yule, which is the holiday that most Christmas traditions originate from. The news brings tales of twisted stuffing, Christmas eyebrows, tiny cows and more. In place of a regular “Recommended Listening” segment, I’m serving up a list of slightly twisted holiday episodes from some of my favorite podcasts.

A man in the UK is still using a set of Christmas lights his mother purchased 48 years ago. He keeps them permanently on an artificial tree to avoid damaging them and claims he has never had to change a light bulb. 

First off, miniature cows are totally a thing that’s been around for a while. There’s a farmer in Iowa who has managed to breed an entire herd of them averaging only 33 inches tall. That is smaller than some breeds of dogs. So why not skip the puppy and get a mini-cow for Christmas.

Because there’s never a shortage of dumb ways to apply makeup. This year brings a trend of using gel to shape eyebrows to look like trees and then decorate them with jewels and stickers to look like a Christmas tree.

In recent years the SJW crowd has turned their sights on our childhoods. Now different people are taking apart Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer claiming it’s everything from a story that supports bullying and exploitation to claiming he’s a transgender icon. Can’t we just let a cartoon be a cartoon and enjoy it?

Claiming that it will bring her closer to her deceased mother, a woman has announced that she intendeds to mix her mother’s ashes into the stuffing in her Christmas turkey. If she’s already cremated, does this still count as cannibalism?
