A Christmas Story is a sweet, nostalgic family film from 1983, and one of my favo(u)rites. It's cute, and good-natured, and pretty funny, too. To mark the 25th anniversary of the film's release, you can bid (with the proceeds going to charity, natch) on the opportunity to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas morning in the house where it was filmed. Of course, the house is in Cleveland, OH - so there's that.

"But why", you are asking yourself, "is this being posted here on Reprobates? What's reprobative about that?"

Glad you asked. Scroll down to the bottom (bottom - geddit?) of the page about the house and there's an ad for a Chinese restaurant near Cleveland called Pearl of the Orient which proclaims that it's all about the "Color - Aroma - Taste". What worries me is that the owners of the restaurant seem to have - without irony - chosen as their logo the obvious acronym based on the restaurant's name.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, and Santa Claus likes the "Color - Aroma - Taste" of POO.
