A tip of the campari bottle to you, Mikey Sin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

The Little Drummer Boy Challenge, where you try to avoid the worst Christmas carol. “Peace and Love” was actually that tune. I thought reggae and ska musicians had better taste though I admit that trombone was sweet. littledrummerboychallenge.com
