Hah -- beat me to it!

I particularly enjoyed this line:

"Key rituals of Festivus include accusing others of being a disappointment and wrestling."

Could that be a reference to the Airing of Grievances and Feats of Strength?

That's cool. We should take credit for it so that the sign can remain. Cool

Also, this:

"The display, a reference to the fake holiday featured on an episode of the television sitcom, did not include the totem of Festivus — a bare aluminum pole instead of a tree."

Which begs the question -- if there's no pole, then what IS in the display?

Never mind... "just a simple sign"... seems like an opportunity lost, though...

Are you telling me there's not one Festivus supporter available in all Del Besta Bico?

You think you could keep us out of Florida? We're moving in lock, stock, and barrel! We're gonna be in the pool. We're gonna be in the clubhouse. We're gonna be all over that shuffleboard court!

Can only post a low res version of episode 166 on their FTP so I can show some people the origins of festivus. The bittorrent links are down.
