The season of good will is at our throats again and rather than do my usual griping, I thought I'd cope this year by what US soldiers in Iraq call "embracing the suck." I hope to post, with your help, of course, a selection of the worst, grossest, but completely irresistible exempla of Christmas schlock. Dish readers are hereby invited to send in videos, images, photos or pop-cultural moments when the gag reflex jumps into action and then somehow relents. A great site for this is called Musical Fruitcake, modestly subtitled: A Collection Of The Worst Christmas Songs Ever Created. In the spirit of keeping standards as high as possible, here, to begin with, is A Christmas Macarena. Merry merry!
