Bah Humbug

I spent a few hours today in the café in a bookstore reading, writing, and contemplating communication with aliens.  At one point I noticed the store was selling “Bah Humbug” mugs.  For a second I considered buying one to express my displeasure at Chinamas.  (Chinamas – the four month orgy of consumerism where tons of cheap, worthless crap is bought propping up foreign economies, often confused with the Christian holiday of Christmas.) But then I wondered if buying the mug would actually support Chinamas.  I checked and – of course – the mugs were made in China, so I didn’t buy it and was left feeling like I had lost something.  Damn you Chinamas.
