Holiday Smell-o-Rama
By Mike

I have no sense of smell. So there are many festive aromas I have missed out on over Thanksgivings and Christmases past. Or so I am told. They include:

  • The turkey, right after the thermometer pops up.
  • Perspiration, when Mom or Dad had to dig the thermometer out of the turkey.
  • Smelly feet, when everyone lays down with their stockinged extremities up against the register.
  • Highballs.
  • Tinsel sizzling on Christmas tree bulbs.
  • Grease in a pan on the stove, good for dipping your bread
  • Smoke, from the stove, the hot gravy, the hot turkey and Dad's Pall Malls. (Was that the brand?)
  • Sweetness, from the hard candy thrown your way on St. Nicholas Day.
  • SBDs, after dinner

Metro Trivia

In our last issue, we posed a question...
What Major League Baseball Player hit a home run in his first plate appearance and retired over 20 years later with only 1 home run?
A. Hoyt Wilhelm - Thank You To Jerry McCarty for the correct answer.

Today's question... Until 1997, what annual Christmas special on TV was edited to remove a scene with kids throwing snowballs at a can on a fence. (The current Paramount video release is thankfully complete and unedited!)
