I have so much energy that I've decided to make this a contest. With prizes!
See, last summer I threw a party for the entire internet, and like any good hostess, I provided goodies for my guests. Only since the entire internet didn't show up, I wound up with leftovers.
So here's the deal. Guess the name of this popular Christmas song and you'll win yourself a super-fine Mamarazzi t-shirt. They're white with dark red lettering and say
in red ink. If you know Kristen of Mommy Needs a Cocktail, you know how nice these t-shirts are.
OK, here are the rules:
- Look at the pictures. In previous years I've gotten my pictures from Google Images. Now I'm using Google or Amazon.com. Amazon has nice clear images. And after doing the majority of my Christmas shopping on Amazon, I figure they owe me.
- Try to figure out what Christmas song the pictures represent. (Usually I show the first line of the first verse, i.e., "Silent night, holy night" because just "Silent Night" would be too short.)
- Leave a comment with your well-reasoned and thoughtful solution. Or take the opportunity to make fun of me.
- If you're right, you win a Mamarazzi t-shirt.
- And here's a hint: most of the time, the phrase I'm using includes little words--basic verbs, articles, pronouns, and prepositions--that produce pretty strange results in Google Images. After all, it's THE first Noel and WE three kings OF orient ARE. And when you do a search for the, we, of, and are, you come up with pretty random images.
So look for the nouns. Christmas carol-y nouns like angels, mangers, stars, nights, oxen, and asses.
Ready? Here goes:
