The “Miscellaneous” Mixes: This Shitsmas

After last year’s gangbusters mix, Fruitcake & Dreidels, the lady and I decided that we must — must — follow up that masterpiece with yet another collection of holiday-themed weirdness. We were inspired by none other than the great John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, who sadly failed to make the mix despite this banner effort.

So, without further adieu, break out those menorahs and mistletoe!
