Merry Christmas Jupiter

Huh? That's right, you heard it the first time. Yes, Merry Christmas to you and yours, happy continuance of Chanukah if you're one of the Chosen Ones, but if you really want to show some appreciation to something that matters in your life, throw a shout out to the largest planet in our solar system.

I read recently that due to Jupiter's enormous gravity well, it sucks in a lot of asteroids that might otherwise hit us. So even though it's Jesus' birthday, lets ignore that it's named after a pagan god and throw a little love its way. You're only here because it is. Merry Christmas Jupiter, stay big.

Oh, and Merry Christmas to everyone else too. Unless you're food.

In which case, thanks for your sacrifice.

(My sister's fish Turk with his Xmas present. And yes, there is a JD as well.)


  1. Merry Xmas! I hope you got away this year and didn't get snowed in.

    That Oscar looks like he got the perfect gift. Oh, and thanks Jupiter......

  2. Ooooookkaaaaay....(slowly backs away from the computer....)

  3. Merry Christmas!
    (...and thanks for all the fish!)

  4. My FIRST thought was, "What the f*** is that????"

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Thanks for some perspective! I love that! Happy, Merry fill in the blank.

  6. Merry Christmas to the Captain, Supreme Leader, Connor and Liam!

  7. By Jove, what a smashing photo!

    Confession: being a sci-fi and astronomy buff from way back, I always wanted to go to Jupiter. When National Geographic published the first Voyager fly-by photos (waaay back!), I was in ecstasy!

    Wouldn't hurt to give him some props.

  8. this was the funniest Christmas post I have read. anywhere.

  9. Here's a Big Merry Christmas Jupiter!

    Oh, Ewwww....
    (cue, vegetarian squirming here)

  10. lost nemo, found religion, i mean jupiter.

    have a happy and a merry.

  11. Can I get a wha wha! Merry Christmas!

  12. What, no love for Uranus? Uranus keeps everything from backing up and ... yes, I'm stopping now. Howdy, Jupiter, you kick ass planet. Doesn't Jupiter have a hurricane that's been raging for hundreds of years? Can we make the idiot reporters go THERE to cover the story?

  13. Merry Christmas and enjoy those industrial strength twist ties!

  14. Somewhere there's a dirty joke in the line "sucks in asteroids...."
    Merry Christmas!!!

  15. Merry Christmas! I have a new found respect for Jupiter and a new found love for your sister. Is there a Kelso?

  16. Is that fish part cat? Because he's just toying with that food.

    Or maybe he was feeling Christmassy and was keeping the little guy warm?

    Yeah, we'll go with that.

  17. Merry Christmas, Jupiter!

    And to you and yours as well.

  18. FIRST....SUCKERS!!!!

    Oh wait...23rd, but I was this close!

    Merry Christmas to the Dumbass family. I will be sure to apreciate Jupiter (and Uranus, thanks SK) just a little more today.

  19. Turk and JD...bahahahahahaha!

    Fish are friends, not food!

    Jupiter will now hold a place near and dear to my heart. I've always been partial to Mars because of Kim Stanley Robinson, but Jupiter's been getting a bum rap.

    I'll spread the word. Perhaps a new religion will be born!


Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
