really? that's kind of scary...

My new favorite RSS feed is Snopes.com. I love trying to figure out if the crazy legends are true. But this one was weird.


Merry Christmas Target

Claim: Target has eschewed use of the phrase "Merry Christmas" from its in-store promotions and public advertising.

Status: True.
No, that's not the weird part. The scary thing is this thing got around because some groups are calling for a boycott of Target because they're being sensitive to the other holidays that happen in December.

And then the story gets just nutso. Target isn't the only uh, target for this. There was a boycott of Wal-Mart because they encourage greeters to wish customers "Happy Holidays" instead of Merry Christmas. That's right. Wal-Mart was being to progressive for these people. That's a sure sign you're a right-wing nutjob right there.
