Have A Very Groovy Christmas!

Rudolph WAS lit — and Santa was taking magic mushrooms!

This Christmas, like many before it and many yet to come, the story of Santa and his flying reindeer will be told, including how the “jolly old elf” flies on his sleigh throughout the entire world in one night, giving gifts to all the good children.

But according to one theory, the story of Santa and his flying reindeer can be traced to an unlikely source: hallucinogenic or “magic” mushrooms.

“Santa is a modern counterpart of a shaman, who consumed mind-altering plants and fungi to commune with the spirit world,” said John Rush, an anthropologist and instructor at Sierra College in Rocklin, Calif.

According to the theory, the legend of Santa derives from shamans in the Siberian and Arctic regions who dropped into locals’ teepeelike homes with a bag full of hallucinatory mushrooms as presents in late December, Rush said.

“As the story goes, up until a few hundred years ago these practicing shamans or priests connected to the older traditions would collect Amanita muscaria (the Holy Mushroom), dry them, and then give them as gifts on the winter solstice,” Rush told LiveScience. “Because snow is usually blocking doors, there was an opening in the roof through which people entered and exited, thus the chimney story.”

Far out, man!

    If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. 🙂

    He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer’s credibility …..

    Q: ‘Officer — did you see my client fleeing the scene?’

    A: ‘No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.’

    Q: ‘Officer, who provided this description?’

    A: ‘The officer who responded to the scene.’

    Q: ‘A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?’

    A: ‘Yes, sir. With my life.’

    Q: ‘With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?’

    A: ‘Yes sir, we do!’

    Q: ‘And do you have a locker in the room?’

    A: ‘Yes, sir, I do.’

    Q: ‘And do you have a lock on your locker?’

    A: ‘Yes, sir.’

    Q: ‘Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?’

    A: ‘You see, sir, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.’

      Nah, it’s fun. Our blog council can handle it. 🙂

    • smile says:

      I agree with dandytiger. It is a fun piece. And I love the responses. So true, both sides of it – yours and myiq’s. I suppose lawyers are like the opposite gender; you can’t live with them and you can’t live without them. 🙂

    ‘South Korea elects first woman President – South Korea elected its first female President on Wednesday, with voters handing a historic victory to CONSERVATIVE candidate Park Geun-Hye’. Damn, those radical extremists are everywhere. /s

    If there is going to be so much snow you have to crawl out of a hole in your roof, I’d want to spend the winter on mushrooms, too.

  8. tommy says:

    ‘Megan Fox – Morning sickness was so bad, I was convinced I was birthing a vampire baby like the one from Twilight’. Hmm….wasn’t mental health in the news recently?

    ‘$120,000 cash found in trash – A worker at a waste disposal site at Japan found $120,000 cash in a stream of pulverized trash, police said. “There were about a thousand 10,000 yen bills that came out of a pulverizer unscathed,” said a spokesman at the Asaminami police department in Hiroshima prefecture, in the country’s west. He added that there were also 2,300 fragments of money destroyed by the machine at a municipal facility that processes bulky waste’. Santa, damn it, theres stuff falling off your overloaded sleigh.

    Here’s a holiday tip:

    Don’t watch “historical” Christmas specials with a true believer. I was watching Christiane Amanpoor’s special on ABC with my mom and I pointed out a few of the inaccuracies.

    Mom kicked my ass out and made me go home.

    ‘Bieber’s murder plot revealed – An obsessed killer, who allegedly plotted to kidnap singer Justin Bieber and strangle him, put a $2500 bounty on each of the singer’s testicles, as he wanted to castrate the singer. Jailed Dana Martin, who sports a Bieber tattoo on his leg, is accused of arranging for two other men to abduct and murder the singer’. Talk bout moneyed testicular fortitude. Insane!

    Keeping on the topic of insanity….. ‘Lohan can’t afford psychological therapy – Troubled actor Lindsay Lohan reportedly needs psychological help, but she just can’t afford it. The 26 year old has apparently agreed she needs help but doesn’t have the money to hire a psychiatrist as she is currently in debt. Lindsay is overwhelmed at the prospect of going to jail and believes that a psychiatrist can help her through this trying time. However, Lindsay has a huge problem, she can’t afford to pay a good shrink because she literally has no money. Her health insurance would only pay about 20% of the mental health bills, and the doctors that she wants to see charge $250-$300 an hour’. – Troubled actor. As far as I know, every actor is “troubled”. 26 year old. Jeez, I’ve been hearing bout her and so often that I thought by now she’d be 40. Scared of going to jail, thats atleast sane. Literally has no money, boo hoo, wheres all the money you earned, Lindsay? Blew it away, didn’t you? Health Insurance, Obamacare will look after you, not to worry. And finally keep them guns away from her. Hmm…….shes probably stupid enough to accidentally shoot herself.

    mental illness is a touchy subject, but I feel like people are given too many drugs and not enough treatment and places to go. It’s a “cheap” solution and I know a few people that became more dangerous to society after the prescription drugs started creating side effects.
