Keep Yul in Yuletide December 7, 2010

Keep Yul in Yuletide

Forget keeping Christ in Christmas.

It’s way more fun to walk around in a shirt bearing an image of Yul Brynner:

Awesome. You can get that shirt here, courtesy of the South Jersey Humanists! Or… you can win one!

All you have to do is fill in the blanks to the following phrase:

Keep _____ in ____________

Make me laugh (because it’s more fun that way)!

A winner will be picked at random. If you’d like to be considered for the prize, you must live in the US — just make sure the word “troglodyte” is at the end of your comment.

(Thanks to Michael for the link!)

"The way republican politics are going these days, that means the winner is worse than ..."

It’s Moving Day for the Friendly ..."
"It would have been more convincing if he used then rather than than."

    Keep the Moon in Monday
    Keep the Dues in Tuesday
    Keep the Woden in Wednesday
    Keep the Thor in Thursday
    Keep the Freya in Friday
    Keep the Saturn in Saturday

    In Flemish/German, it’s Dienstdag – or Service day – I believe it’s referring the one day of service that you (a serf) owe to the master of the manor

  • Rebecca

    Keep the MOO in moose!

  • Wow. Look away for a minute, and all the easy holiday puns are taken. And you’re left with offbeat stuff like this:

    (btw, it’s spelled “Troggs”)

    Oh, and troglodyte

  • heironymous

    Oops looks like I was off in my own amateur Etymology:

    Keep the Tewes in Tuesday (Tewes being a version of Mars the god of war)

    BTW Day – comes from Dei – Latin for “of the god”.

    The shirt would have to have a picture of Krampus on it to get the desired effect.


  • Denis Robert

    Keep the TM in Christmas!!! (attributed to Ayn Rand).

  • Derek

    I see previously “soul in Solstice,” but…

    “Keep the Sol in Solstice” has long been my favorite, it works scientifically and for the Roman Sun-god reference predating the Christian claim.

  • Ibis

    Keep the No! in Noël.

    Not a USAian.

  • CJ :)

    Apparently it’s “keep gouging in plus size marketing.” +$4 for a 2XL, +$5 for a 3XL, and so on upwards? I don’t mind paying a couple of dollars more for my comfortable 3X t-shirt, but this is ridiculous.

    Guess I’ll go sit in my fat corner with my non-fat wallet where I refuse to pay $22 for a t-shirt just because I’m fat.

  • troglodyte? You’re making it hard now.

    Ahem, anyway keep the church out of state!

    Oh, in?

    Since I’m not extremely witty, how about I ask the “war on Christmas” “keep Christ in Christmas” folks to keep peace on Earth and good will towards all?

    Keep the happy in winter!

    If I think of anything real, I’ll come back and add it but don’t hold your breath. I’m drawing a blank. Happy Winter, y’all!

    Dang it, Zazzle won’t let me exchange money for product, without setting up a useless account.

    They lost my custom right there; I can’t be arsed filling another invasive registration form and wondering what they’re going to do with all my details.

    Most other sites it’s simple: tell them where I want the stuff sent, and pay for it. Not Zazzle. Too bad, it looked like a good shirt.

  • D Haak

    Keep the ‘He is’ in atheism.

  • Nordog

    Keep the “pepsi” in “dyspepsia”.

  • ShavenYak

    Huh, the link to the shirt no longer works, and I can’t find it with a search (although I did find something really cool while trying – )

    I sure hope they haven’t caved in to whiny Christians offended that someone would make fun of their persecution complex.
