Happy Boxing Day!

I recently discovered that "Boxing Day" is not, as I once thought, a day for people to take out their holiday frustrations by beating the hell out of each other. According to Wikipedia (a site featured in many a former door-to-door encyclopedia salesmen's suicide note), "Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a 'Christmas box', from their bosses or employers."

So if you have servants, get them something nice. If you are a servant, rise up and kill your master already! (See the movie Django Unchained or the intro on Nas's album It Was Written for reference/inspiration.)
