You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why...
Santa Claus is dead.


My mom used to sing that to me when I was little. I didn't find it amusing when I was three. By the time I was five or six, it was hilarious.

I sang it to my 18 year old foster daughter, last week. She started laughing because my mom had told her the story behind it.

This just in: Some songs have grammatical mistakes written into them to fill the pentameter better, or because the song writer just didn't care. Also, sometimes people write down songs as they THINK they are being performed.

Stay tuned afterwards as we expose the LIES in music called "Nobody's Grandmother Got Run Over by A Reindeer". It could very well save your life.

/Also, Mentalfloss is turning into Cracked apparently.
