Twas Da Night Before Christmas by Puddles

I hopes ya'll not mind but I ruined  rewrote da classic 
'Twas da Night Befores Christmas story cuz I thoughted it needed to be a little more updated and modernized to fit todays lifestyles.
I just knows it will be a new classic fur sures.
So, nows lets all go sit down by da tree so I can read it to ya'll.

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through da house
Not a dachshund was stirring, not even a Puddles;

Da socks was hung by the chimney in a complete disarray, cuz I hung ‘em myself

In hopes dat St. Nicholas would gets on withs da show.

 We was all curled up all on da couch,
While visions of beer and cheetos, and squirrels danced in my head;
And da Blobs in their furs, and I nekkid unders my blankie,
Had just settled down for a long snooze,

When out on da porch there was such a noise,
I jumped from da couch to see what da heck was goin’ on.
Away to the window I runned like a flash,

Tore open the shutters...even though we ain't got no shutters... and stood way up on my tippie paws..
(fat man done tripped overs my couch and cooler on da porch)

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
(da moon on da breast...WTF?)

Gave the lustre of mid-day to junk below,
(ie: trucks on cinder blocks)
When, what to my nosey eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight big honkin' reindeer,

With a big fat old driver, so hung over,
I knew cuz I be smart, it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,

(dat is da dumest line)
And he whistled, and shouted, and hollered and called them by name;

"Now, John Boy! now, Cletus! now, Jimmy Joe, Buck!
On, Cooter! on Earl! On Homer,  and Bobby Joe!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"

Okays dats all I gots.

Final Card Count:
 ME: 68
e-cards: 8
PLUS a tag, goat, and kangaroo ornament, and sumptin' from Dip, Bridget, and Elliot (I shows later)
Hoomans: 7
A) Corbin sent da hoomans there very own card cuz he felt bad fur them...and sent directions too.
B) Sam and Pippen sent a card specifyin' it was fur da hoomans and I not gets a card from them dis year...damn them.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all my furiends and stalkers from Me and my family to you and yours!


Pip, if you is readin' thoughts and prayers are withs you.
Please gets betters real soon. I loves you Buddy!

I always wondered about that whole breast bit as well.

A wonderful, lyrical rendering. That poem was wanting a bit of freshening up.


Lovable Lily said...

Kinda brings tears to our eyes!

A beautiful rendition Puddles, just beautiful.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.....

Lily Belle & Muffin

Agnes B. Bullock said...

We are speechless with the beauty of our poem- this was quite an undertaking and obviously beer had no influence at all. Bravo!

What Remains Now said...

I think you captured the spirit of the season beautifully. We're doing our official card count tomorrow. It's going to be close. Wishing you all the merriest Christmas ever!

liparifam said...

Laughing at the names of the reindeer :) Reminds me of stories my ex-husband used to tell about people he worked with in the Texas oilfields; I'll never forget the one about "Scooter - and his son, Chigger"...

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

WE think YOUR version is MUCH more.. UP TO DATE.
WE think that furst guy was talkin about a CHICKEN BREAST that somebuddy was Mooning. Butt we don't know why they would do THAT.. unless it was a mistake. Like when my dad "CRACKS" Everybuddy up as he bends over to pick up a Chicken Breast that he dropped. BUTT I could be wrong about all that.
YOUR Version is destined to become an annual tradition here in Blogville.

Millie and Walter said...

Well Puddles you have out done yourself once again. What a great modernization of that poem and the photo illustrations are perfect too.

I've got my paws crossed for Mr. Pip too.

Have a great Christmas.


GOOSE said...

I LOVE it! I will be a singin' it all day long, yes I put it to music in my head. I think I might ask MOM is I can do a solo in church tonight. And I LOVE the beer tree. Do you suppose if I bury some of MOM's beer I could grow my own tree. Miss Puddles I wish you the Merriest of Christmas', filled with joy and hope, laughter and love.

That was the very best poem. I'm in jail now b/c for some reason Mrs. Master doesn't like it when I jump the fence to go see the birds in the neighbors yard.

Merry Christmas from jail,

georgia little pea said...

Dear Pudds, I am late to the party as usual. I think this rewritten story? Poem? May well become a classic. I totally agree with the dum lines and BTW, what are nosey eyes?

Its Christmas morning here already! Of course there are no pressies for me but that is only to be expected in my joyless household. I am off to Chrissie lunch though so hope springs eternal. Say, am I getting poetic myself?

Have a great day Pudds! X

Okays, now the 'Beer Tree' is just FABulous! That musta took you a WHOLE DAY to drinks that many beers! Just thinks, if you and I had a whole weekend, we could drinks enough to decorate the White House Christmas Tree!!! I thinks they would appreciate it, too!
I love the Duct tape hangin' the sockies (ya know, the duct tapes now comes in purty colors? Yups, I had Ma buy me somes zebra stripes, so when my tunnel rips, it'll look classy!)
OMD ~ You looks so cutes on your tippy paws, lookin' outs the windows! You know whats you need? You needs a THRONE!! Yups! The Queen of Beers shouldn't have to be stretchin' on her tippy paws to see her Kingdom! Nope. I mean, how in the hell are you suppose to keep an eye on your cooler, if you have to be strainin' to see out the windows?? Not right. Just sayin'....
Okays, I already been thru like 4 widdle pads readin' your poem, I gots to change this last one befores Ma tries to sit in the chair (she spit out like 87 thousand HBO words the last time I forgots the widdle pad on the chair! Somethin' abouts 'you been readin' Puddles bloggie again????')
Anyhu, I hopes you had a FABulous Christmas, and tell your Moms she's gotta gets you that Throne.
