New Children’s Book Has Santa Claus Coming Out Of The Closet, Rather Than To Town

(PCM) A new children’s book will be published that is set to change the story of Santa Claus as we know it, forever! The book titled, “Santa’s Husband” is penned by Daniel Kibblesmith and features the story of a gay, black Santa who lives in the North Pole with his white husband. The story further goes on to explain that if Santa can’t make it out to all of his mall appearances, his husband fills in, hence why everyone believes that Santa is white.

Kibblesmith is also a writer for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and the book “How To Win At Everything”.  He revealed via Twitter that the “Santa’s Husband” book will be hitting store shelves on October 1o, 2017. Kibblesmith says that the idea for the “Santa’s Husband” book came from a joke he tweeted back in December of 2016 which read, “Me & @JenAshleyWright have decided our future child will only know about Black Santa. If they see a white one we’ll say “That’s his husband”

Kibblesmith still appears to be in awe that the story is actually getting published, but definitely seems ready to take on some of the backlash he will most likely begin to receive. He also has a ton of support as well, so we are definitely looking at a Christmas battle to begin online soon. Kibblesmith and publisher Harper Design both claim that “Santa’s Husband” will be a parody children’s book, but it is also meant for all ages.

Cheaters Dating Website Claims Sign-ups Soar Right After The Holidays!

(PCM) Nobody loves a cheater, especially around the holiday season. The holidays are a time meant to be spent with family and loved ones, not out looking for a new hook-up on the side. That is precisely why cheaters dating website Gleeden (think Ashley Madison) claims that they see new sign-ups soar on the second Monday after the Christmas holiday.

The reason why so many people seem to pick January to begin an illicit affair or perhaps even call the divorce attorney is really fairly simple. No one really wants to take responsibility for ruining the holidays for both children and family, so there for they get through the holiday season and then decide to have an affair somehow making a justification in their heads.  After all, January is known as divorce month.

A few other reasons why January is such a popular month to call it splits also has a lot to do with an individuals resolutions for the New Year with many wishing to make a fresh start. It also has a lot to do with finances, as many people receive hefty holiday bonuses at the end of the year and feel like they are in more of a comfortable position, at least from a financial standpoint to leave their significant others.

It is definitely sad, as way too many marriages appear to be falling apart these days. It is important to truly know the person you are committing the rest of your life to and also keep up with the communication as it is key to any solid relationship. It can take years to build up trust and only seconds to knock it down.

The Late George Michael Secretly Donated Millions To Charity

(PCM) 2016 obviously couldn’t leave quietly without tragically taking the life of yet another iconic celebrity. We were shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the death of musician George Michael on Christmas Day. While, Michael’s immediate cause of death has not yet been revealed, hundreds of tributes and stories have been pouring in from both his colleagues and fans across the globe.

It has now been revealed that Michael donated millions to various charities and individuals over the years, however he always asked to remain anonymous. Michael felt that giving to charity should not be a publicity stunt and his wish to keep his charitable endeavors a secret was kept until now.

The Guardian has published an article revealing just how much money Michael has donated throughout his career. Band Aid alone raised over 9 million for Ethiopian famine relief and Michael made the decision to donate all of his royalties from Wham!’s “Last Christmas” single to the same relief fund as well.

The Guardian also noted that money he received from his duet with Sir Elton John on the single “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” was donated to both the children’s charity Rainbow House and the London AID’s hospice Lighthouse.

It was also mentioned that Michael once donated $15,000 for a woman’s desperately needed IVF treatment and another $25,000 to help a medical student pay off her outstanding debuts. That is just a few occurrences where Michael was known to give back. He also took the time to volunteer at a local area homeless shelter and once performed a private concert for the nurses who took care of his ailing mother when she was hospitalized.

It has been beautiful to watch these stories continue to pour out and certainly inspiring for those looking to give back a bit during the holiday season. Rest in peace George Michael and thanks for being so wonderful!

Let’s All Take A Moment To Poke Fun At The FBI’s Sad Little Christmas Snowman

(PCM) Whoever happens to be in charge of the FBI’s social media account could perhaps be in search of a new job in coming year. The internet is having a field day roasting the FBI’s sadly pathetic snowman drawing and holiday message that was posted to their official account over the holiday weekend.

The design is hilariously amateurish and includes the brief text “Happy holidays from our FBI family to yours”.  One would think that the FBI would have a slightly bigger budget to have a more appropriate design created or least higher a better graphic designer.

But is it any worse than the CIA’s Christmas posting?

Either way that internet has been having a ton of fun posting their own snarky renditions of the holiday greeting, here are few examples below:

Church Prints Tupac Lyrics Rather Than ‘Hail Mary’ Prayer

(PCM) A church in Sri Lanka made a hilarious mistake over the holiday season when they accidentally printed lyrics to the Tupac Shakur song “Hail Mary” rather than the actual prayer “Hail Mary”.

The church did not notice the mistake until it was too late and all of the booklets that were printed for their annual Christmas Carol service had already been handed out.

The error was posted by a parishioner via Twitter and the posting has already racked up over 18,000 retweets and over 23, 000 likes.

A priest from the church claims that after realizing the mistake the church did ask for the booklets to be returned. He claims that a “young boy” was given the task of printing up the booklets and he had mistakenly downloaded the lyrics to the wrong version of the song. Whoops!

Definitely a quite hilarious Tupac and Christmas mix-up!
