Feminist christmas carol

Wow! Two posts in one day! something crazy must be going on…the world…is it about to end? I dunno. Hope not, though. it’s been an alright world so far.

So here’s the deal. recently I came across the way-too-awesome-for-words video by Twisted Sister for Heavy Metal Christmas. Essentially it’s like the traditional christmas carol 12 days of christmas only in heavy metal style and with heavy metal related gifts (tatoos of ozzy, studded belts, cans of hairspray, leather jackets, tattered t-shirts…you get the drill.)

well. after trying to memorize the song (which was easier to do than with the original 12 days of christmas. that song *still* eludes me), I came up with a brilliant idea.

If Twisted Sister could make a song based off of that…why anyone can! Including us crazy feminists.

so, with no further ado, I present to you the feminist friendly remake of 12 days of christmas.
