The Core Dump

Big it up for the Holidays

The Holidays are upon us, and it can be a pretty stressful time. To help us all get through this, here is a message from the Savior himself:

Big Up You’self, says Buddy Jesus

And since it makes Bill O’Reilly so angry he might finally pop a vein in his brain and leave sane people alone, the coming Holidays will only be referred to as the Holidays in this tiny (but oh so very cozy) corner of cyberspace.

Happy Holidays, everyone! Word ’em up.
