There's a remote chance that you haven't read this classic before. Or recently.

So, without further ado:

"Mom's Christmas Letter"

"Dear Darling Son and That Person You Married:

"Merry Christmas to you and please don't worry. I'm just fine considering that I can't breathe or eat. The important thing is that you have a nice holiday, thousands of miles away from your ailing mother. I've sent along my last ten dollars in this card, which I hope you'll spend on my grandchildren.

Two points which the Lemming thinks are important to remember:

  2. Even so, that is a disturbed woman
