R&M LAUGH IN: Holiday Show

However liberal the church becomes, I seriously doubt the Pope will allow cheerleaders in the college of cardinals.

Tonight, Rowan and Martin's Laugh In salutes the spirit of Christmas.
It's a great time of the year to do that. It would sure look strange seeing a Christmas show in spring reruns.
Never mind about that, that's the whole point. Christmas shouldn't just be in December but it should be all year long.
Wow, we couldn't afford that.
You see, too many people forget what Christmas spirit is really about.
Oh tell me about it, won't you?
I fully intend to.
I thought you would.
Well it all started in a little town of Bethlehem—
It all started in a little town of Bethlehem.
Little town of Bethlehem. Good name for a song.
Alright, now many years ago the world was troubled with many pressing problems.
Well no wonder, they didn't have drip dry suits then.
Now this is serious, Dick. People were rioting in the streets, there was civil disorder, injustice, oppression of minority groups—
Well I'm certainly glad they cleared all that up.
Now what does Christmas mean to you?
Christmas means to me many things. Decorating the Christmas tree with popcorn, going around the neighborhood singing Christmas carols, tiny little tots with their face all aglow.
Why that's beautiful! And that's what Christmas means to you.
No, that's what Christmas means to the cuckoo holding my cue card.
I don't want to hear about it....

I've often wondered. Is it proper to send a get well card to a Christian Scientist?
