Real VT: Christmas caroling Burlington style

Posted By on Mon, Dec 19, 2005 at 6:13 PM

I just came from a clever Queer Liberation Army protest. A group of the "queer elves" stood outside the General Dynamics building and sang Christmas carols. Er, sort of. They rewrote the songs for the occasion. Some lyrics from their version of "Jingle Bells":

Dashing through the snow
In leftie Burlington
Oh how much we want
Revolution

The QLA sings
Making spirits bright
Oh what fun it is
To fight the radical right!

Jingle Bells, George Bush smells,
Make him go away.
The neocon empire is in its final days, hey!

You get the idea. More in Wednesday's paper.
