Signs of the Times

Overheard in the Deneen household, in response to the customary seasonal threat that my son could expect to find coal in his stocking:

"I don't mind - I can sell it for a lot of money."

Peak oil is even undermining the old folkways...

Maybe the threat of the future will be that Santa will leave an internal combustion engine in your stocking if you don't behave...
