    Saw this on binder planet:

    Twas the night before Christmas, and out in the shed
    Sat a tired old SCOUT, its battery dead

    Its fenders were rusted, the floorpan had holes
    The seats and the carpets had been eaten by voles

    The tires had dry-rot, the gas tank was leaking
    A turn of the wheel sent tie rods a-creaking.

    So I put on my coat with a weight on my heart,
    And went out to the shed to get it to start.

    The engine turned over--there arose such a clatter!
    I knew from the sound it was water pump chatter.

    From under the dashboard there came a bright flash:
    The wiring harness had just turned to ash!

    “I’ve had it with Scouts!” I finally swore
    “Enough is too much! I can’t take anymore!”

    When what to my red, teary eyes should appear
    But a little Binder (hell, I need a beer!)
    “Hello,” he said, poking me in the belly.

    “This one can be saved; there’s no reason to grieve.
    All you need is some faith--Man, you gotta believe!

    “A hammer! Some duct tape! Get me more tools!
    When you work on these trucks, just make up-a da rules!
    We’ll get her cranked over—no way that she’ll stall
    (But stand over there wit’ you back to the wall.)

    A cough and a sputter, the cacophony stunning--
    I couldn’t believe it! The damn thing was running!

    The ghost winked at me and said, kicking a tire,
    “Whatever you do, DO NOT TOUCH THIS WIRE!”

    The old man then vanished amid sneezes and farts
    But when the smoke cleared he had left me some parts.

    So I opened the shed door and took the top down
    Put pedal to metal and went out on the town.

    And I thought to myself as I missed second gear
    Merry Christmas to All and a Happy New Year!

    Hooray for the holidays...

    Found a hi-lift jack, 168pc mechanics toolset and magnetic parts holder under the tree.

    :wrenching:

    Oh, and a radio controlled car that was "for my son".

    :punk:

    Hope you all have a Happy New Year, and see you in 2015!
