Me and Great Literary Works

So we've been reading "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens to our kids at night. The younger ones generally wonder off after a couple of pages, but last night we passed half way.

It's interesting to read, especially read out loud.

You know how I said that I felt I was married to Mrs. Krank last week, and how that was appropriate, because she seemed to be married to Mr. Krank. Well, I found a reference to me in "A Christmas Carol" last night.

It said something about a man with "Horny Hands".

I busted up, as did Mrs. Koda!

And it was only a rendition of Tiny Tim's, "Gawd bless us, Eeeeveryone!" by yours truly that changed the topic so we didn't have to explain it to the two oldest kids, neither of whom seemed to get the original joke.
