Can you guess the 19 Christmas Carols in this mashup?

He came down to earth from heaven,
Who is God and Lord of all,
Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To be our sweet Saviour.
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing,
God with man is now residing,
Yonder shines the infant light
Born that man no more may die.

Joy! Joy! Jesus Christ was born for this
He hath ope’d the heav’nly door
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight
Guide us to Thy perfect light.

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where he lay
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.
The angel of the Lord came down:
“Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing.”

And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
The glories of his righteousness,
And wonders of His love.
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Born is the King of Israel!

An excerpt…

The effect of this notion? I very much fear

‘Twill make doubtful all things that were formerly clear.

Till soon the cat doctors will say in reports,

“We’ve just flipped a coin and we’ve learned he’s a corpse.”‘

Feline entertainment

I have to admit that I have recently had much merriment giggling over videos of cats on YouTube (I am aware that this is probably not something I should admit to…). 

I might blame Wes – who pointed me in the direction of Maru the cat (via BoingBoing), whose love of boxes and fat fluffy face has made him my very favourite YouTube cat:

I should also mention my thanks to Ben, who pointed me (via another vid) in the direction of these two kittens who can’t get enough of a treadmill. If this doesn’t make you laugh, I don’t know what will!

I also came across Nora, the piano-playing cat, who provided more entertainment. I especially enjoyed the duets!

I heard this joke today and it made me groan…

You think it’s bad here; how is the Japanese banking sector faring? In the last 7 days:

  • Origami Bank has folded
  • Sumo Bank has gone belly up
  • Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut many of its branches
  • Karaoke Bank was sold for a song
  • Samurai Bank has suffered sharp cutbacks
  • Ninja Bank took a big hit but remains in the black
  • 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop
  • The staff at Sushi Bank say they got a raw deal and claim something fishy is going on

This is brilliant!

For this to make sense, you need to have played Line Rider.
