Congress No Longer Able To Send Christmas Cards, Merry Festivus Still Legal

December 18, 2011

Looks like the PC police have threatened members of the House of Representatives against wishing constituents a “Merry Christmas,” if they want to do so in a mailing paid for with tax dollars.

Members who submit official mailings for review by the congressional franking commission that reviews all congressional mail to determine if it can be “franked,” or paid for with tax dollars, are being told that no holiday greetings, including “Merry Christmas,” can be sent in official mail.

“I called the commission to ask for clarification and was told no ‘Merry Christmas.’ Also told cannot say ‘Happy New Year’ but can say ‘have a happy new year’ – referencing the time period of a new year, but not the holiday,” said a Hill staffer who requested anonymity.

When questioned the staffer said Congress will still be able to send out Happy Festivus cards  but air of grievances is not allowable.

Festivus Arrives Early in New York

March 25, 2010

Pole dancers are heating up New York for the second annual national championship. That’s right — there is such a thing as the U.S. Pole Dance Federation, and it is the governing body for the art and sport of pole dancing.

“Outside of gymnastics and break dancing, there’s no other sport or form of dance that challenges your body in the same way as pole dancing,” said Wendy Traskos co-founder of the U.S. Pole Dance Federation. “With its intense focus on core strength, flexibility, and the upper body workout, pole dancing is becoming less of a taboo subject and more of a way to experience ‘fun’ fitness.”

Founded in 2008, the U.S. Pole Dance Federation seeks to raise awareness of pole dancing as a professional, competitive sport by hosting national competitions. Judging will include competition in the  Airing of Grievances and Feats of Strength categories.
