First some music to set the mood (right click; open in new window):
That’s more like it.
And now, with apologies to Clement Clarke Moore (and
‘Twas the Blawg Review before Christmas,
with no clicking of mouse,
Not a blawger was stirring, not even Althouse.
The banners were placed by the text box with care,
In hopes that ad revenue soon would be there.
“Now Bashman! now, Reynolds! now, Bainbridge and Ribstein!
On, MacEwen! On, Howell! On Lamb and on Svenson!
To the top of the rankings! to the top of the law!
Now blog away! blog away! blog away all!”
As dry tobacco leaves that before the verdict take flight,
after an appellate victory do you roll over and light?
So up to the house-top the Blog Awards then flew,
A Law Dork done won it; wait for next week now, too.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to the Matt,
And filled all the stockings, proving the world is flat.
As gifts were removed, he kept a countin’,
Tom says the sleigh may now clear Brokeback Mountain!
He called to his team to start the long trip home,
A true classic holiday post comes from one Giacalone.
But I winced as he forgot to separate the church from the state,
“Happy Christmas to all, the First Amendment is great!”
To all readers, human and otherwise:
Blawg Review has information about next week’s host, and instructions how to get your blawg posts reviewed in upcoming issues.
