Unfinished Business

Amy sent me a few more suggestions for clever group names:
A bouquet of florists
A yard of landscapers
A sextet of prostitutes (but why would they travel only in 6’s?)
She also favors “fathom” as the group name for philosophers.

Unlike the group name game, the best-and-worst Xmas song contest only got two entries – mine and my sister’s. Consequently, every category had either a unanimous winner or a 50-50 tie. Here they are:
Best Classic: Tie – “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “O Holy Night”
Worst Classic: Tie – “The 12 Days of Christmas” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”
Best Modern: “Christmas Wrapping” by the Waitresses
Worst Modern: “Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart” by Wham!
There were plenty of honorable mentions in the worst modern category, and I don’t want to leave them out: “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth,” Bruce Springsteen’s version of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time,” and any Christmas song done by the Chipmunks.
