This my friends, is utterly awesome. It is indeed refreshing to note that peoples from all over the globe can indeed get together and share precious moments.

Rest assured that I will indeed record this, and keep it as a souvenir of the wonderful peoples I encountered on this site.

A very Merry Christmas to all.

That's got to be one of the best things I ever heard.

I love that it's a collaborative effort assembled from all over the globe.

Wonderful sense of "inside" humour, and a spirited reading by all the contributors.

Good job everybody. Thanks for the laughs.

Fan-friggin'-tastic!

Ben, you rock, and all the readers, you rock, too.

I'll echo the sentiments of others that hearing the various accents really drives home what a global community we have here.

What a heart-warming thing to hear at this season. :)

Well my friend, I heard it and so did my very dear friend Beetle, and we both loved hearing your voice again, as it brought back a flood of very warm memories.
