The Twelve Days of Holidays, Part XII: A Merry F*%#in' Christmas


Denis Leary may put on a cynical facade for his stand-up act, but deep undernearth, he really has a warm spring of hatred and loathing. His incredibly catchy "Merry F*%#in' Christmas" sounds a lot like a mid-60s modern classic from an animated TV show (and has a video to match) -- except for all the F-bombs, that is. Happy F*#%in' holidays to ya. -- D.X. Ferris
