The Twelve Days of Geekmas!

I think we can all agree that the 12 Days of Christmas is an incredibly repetitive, awful song. The only parts people know with any certainly are "FIVE!!! GOLD!!! RINGS!!!" and maybe the French hens. I think comedian Eddie Izzard said it best:
That “Partridge in a pear tree” song, the only bit we like of it is that "Five gold rings!". People go berserk at that point! People come running in from other rooms, singing "Five gold rings!". The rest of it, we don't know; above that, it's just, "Twelve…monkeys mating, eleven… donkeys dancing, ten pigmies farming, nine… socks… a swimming… five gold rings!" This is a human thing. We only like to learn a little bit of a song. We can't be bothered.
 He's 100% correct. That song is a boring old carol that needs to stop being sung. Of course, there is an alternative. A better version of that song that we could all sing. Last year, I gave you the 12 Days of Geekmas; twelve nerdy things to wish our true love would give us instead of more stupid milkmaids and geese.

Friends, readers, I give you an encore presentation of the 12 Days of Geekmas! Sing along with us!

  1. If you've never seen it, I also highly recommend Straight No Chaser's take on the carol.

    It's not geeky, but... well, maybe it's a little geeky. I hearts it though. :)
